Week 23: Amave [52 Whispers From The Muse]
Overall Rating: 4.4
Style: Blanche/La Bleue
Country: Czech Republic
Appearance: Crystal, crystal clear and flawlessly transparent.
Louche: Some hints of pale blue as the louche forms well defined trails that quickly fill out, Ends in a slightly translucent milk white.
Aroma: Sweet anise with a bright citrus hit your nose first. Fresh and crisp herbs follow.
Flavor/Mouthfeel: Much like the aroma, slightly sweet anise with that fresh crispness that levels to a slight but pleasant bitterness. Luxuriously smooth which calls you to drink more. Not overly complex but extremely nice.
Finish: Light and dry finish. Initially I over-diluted it forgetting it was only 53%. Seemed to work best for me at about 2-2.5:1 water to Amave.
