“What does it taste like?”

“It tastes like a lot of things.”

The Verdict: Complicated

From The Tasting Notes –

This is a strong drink with a lot of flavors happening at once. Not very smooth, more of a burn going down. The gin provides good aroma but you can’t taste it much. The bitters and anisette come through strongly at the finish. Not bad overall.
