Nose: Anise, celery, jelly bean candy, vanilla custard. Clove, slice drops. Grassy cotton candy. The anise is impressive.

Taste: Sweet vanilla, massive anise. Sasparilla, faint plastic. Lightly acrid. Reminds me more of absinthe then mezcal. Interesting. Rich mouth feel but hot.

Finish: Long, floral and peppery. Jasmine, lavender, anise. Some woody notes.

Overall: Bonkers weird, unique and interesting. Anise is massive all through out – something totally new to me.
