AROMA: It has quite a lot of grande wormwood in the aroma before water but also other herbs can be noticed. After louching more herbal nuances appear, but wormwood (which I think it is) stays prominent. Also some fruitiness comes forward when water is added.
TASTE: Intense! Anise does not dominate so this goes to recommend to them who care more about wormwood and other herbs. So in other words it is not sweet, maybe a little bitter in the "cool wormwood way".
