Tasting note by Billy A
On the nose it is quite spirity, with noticeable bitter wood, lots of leafy greenness, fennel tops, sweet pastry and maybe a hint of apple. To taste it starts with a big hit of aniseed followed up by a punch of bitter green and woody wormwood. Once that fades mint and aniseed balls linger with a bit of a spicy tingle on the tongue.
