Clear but almost opaque, deep brown. Some sediment on bottom of bottle.
Pungent liquorice with faint wood smoke.
Bittersweet and intensely liquorice flavoured with light smokiness and faint aniseed.
Long lingering liquorice bitterness.
Very intensely liquorice flavoured, so much so that you’d have to be a bitter liquorice fiend to enjoy this liqueur neat. However, in cocktails the intense liquorice favour makes for an interesting ingredient.
