Clear, light golden. Turns cloudy with water.

Pungent star aniseed becomes more fennel with water.

Clean, star aniseed and light spice. Wonderfully milky almost creamy mouthfeel with water.

Fades with lingering liquorice.

Overall:

Clean, full-favoured star aniseed with a wonderfully milky character with water.
