Review and Tasting

Sampled on 27/10/2013

Appearance

Hazy, pale milky golden. Louches creamy white with water.

Aroma

Aniseed and fennel with black liquorice, very gentle spice and dried orange zest. Water brings oak barky cracked black pepper spice and herbal complexity.

Taste

Aniseed, star anise and earthy liquorice. Water builds green fennel notes but go easy – too much water and you’ll turn bland. Tarquin recommends 5 parts water to 1 part pastis.

Aftertaste

Star anise, then liquorice.
