I'm no aguardiente expert, so I may be off base on what one should taste like. That said, I found this spirit to be a bit watery tasting. Unlike Ouzo, Sambora, and the rest of the licorice based liquors, this stuff has only a weak anise flavor. Imagine drinking water while chewing on a herbal black licorice stick. The flavor that is there seems nice, leaning more towards licorice root than anise, but it is just way too faint. The sweetness level seems appropriate, leaving a nice clean lingering taste.
