Henri Bardouin Pastis

Tasting Notes

From Master of Malt:

Henri Bardouin Pastis is a French star anise and wormwood flavored liqueur from Distilleries et Domaines de Provence, first produced in 1990. It is a blend of 65 different herbs and spices, many of which are secret.

Nose: Richly herbal, with excited notes of star anise sitting beneath simmering spiced notes of cardamom and pepper.

Palate: Decidedly green (and not just from the historical connection between Pastis liqueurs and Absinthe) with fresh, roughly chopped herbs, warming spices and, of course, the distinctive notes of wormwood.

Finish: Lasting spicy notes.

Overall: Quite complex, as you would expect from a liqueur with such an expansive recipe, but it's well balanced and enjoyable.
