Pernod Anise Liqueur
The distinct licorice flavor of anise-based Pernod has been a favorite in France for 200 years both as a before-dinner beverage that stimulates the appetite and a zestful cooking ingredient. Pernod's natural flavor, derived from a blend of herbs, has spread its popularity to the United States.
Wine EnthusiastThe palate entry displays some pod-like trace of anise, but is basically meek and thin; at midpalate there's a better flavor thrust of licorice/ anise and herbs. Ends up a bit timid and lean.
