Not as much anise on the nose but definitely coats your mouth after swallowing. Good with one pour of water. Has a creamy quality after water is added. The milky aesthetic actually carries over to the feel in the mouth.
Pure texas scrub oak on the nose. Not to be confused with peat smoke Super unique. It tastes like the liquid condensed version of a really good rub for a rib. You'd think it would be less sophisticated, but it's surprisingly elegant. I have BBQ breath.
