Review and Tasting

Sampled on 05/04/2014


Clear, vibrant harlequin green. Turns hazy but fails to louche with water.


Pungent, aggressive peppery spirit, fresh fennel, aniseed and liquorice.


Green, herbal flavours are pronounced when neat. Water reveals anise, liquorice, white pepper, cloves, eucalyptus and fennel.


Bitter finish with white pepper and black liquorice.
