Crystal clear. Louches milky white with water.
Clean aniseed, liquorice and fresh fennel with faint white flowers.
Slight sweet anise and liquorice – surprisingly tame even at full strength. Perhaps more aniseed with water at the expense of the liquorice notes.
Strongly liquorice finish with slight lingering wormwood bitterness.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
