At first, there’s nothing subtle about this vivid lime-green liquid. With its bright anise scent and thick mouth-coating effect, it’s like drinking licorice candy. But with ice water, everything changes – it cools and become more classically Pernod-like, with a lighter flavor and texture, and a burst of licorice on the finish. The assertive note would stand out well when used to rinse a glass for a drink like a Sazerac.
