Review and Tasting

Sampled on 02/02/2012


Clear, pale green with light iridescent clarity.


Obvious aniseed, fresh mintyness and pronounced aromatic pear skin aromas.


Very sweet, syrupy palate with pear, aniseed and peppermint-like freshness.


Long, fresh breath-tastic finish with lingering pear skin and liquorice.
