A nicely balanced aroma of wormwood, anise, lemon balm, and basil among other things. There are a number of unique botanicals used in this blend- such things as meadowsweet, lemon balm, basil, tarragon and stinging nettles and you can identify most of them in the melange. Interesting! Very green, herbal and leafy notes to it, the sweet,bitter and savory seem to chase each other with the brandy base notes adding further depth. Taste: Very herbaceous start followed by basil, a rush of anise/licorice followed a sweet lemon and a mix of formic acid and wormwood bitterness that leads to a interesting rush of sensations in your mouth and palate. Only negatives might be the tarragon and basil make it a trifle too herbaceous - Well made and relatively complex with a entertaining mix of ingredients with a range of olfactory and sensory amusements for both nose and tongue.
