Review and Tasting
Sampled on 29/10/2012
Subdued nose compared to some other sambucas. Clean anise, liquorice and fennel with black peppery alcohol.
Very sweet with clean, rich aniseed, strong liquorice and hints of Parma Violets.
Aggressive peppery alcohol burn. This sambuca is clean and straight forward with strong, sweet aniseed, perhaps lacking subtle complexity.

Closure: Screw / Stelvin cap
