Review and Tasting


Sampled on 02/02/2012

Appearance:

Clear, dark reddy-brown with ruby red highlights.

Aroma:

Aniseed bursts forth with barky, fruity smoky aromas and faint carbolic soap.

Taste:

Very sweet, syrupy palate with strong aniseed flavour and subtle cola notes as billed. Clean and faultless – delivers just what it says on the tin.

Aftertaste:

Long, sweet mouth coating liquorice and aniseed finish with lingering liquorice.
