Nose is neutral, there is a hint of grain and ethanol. Taste have quite an original floral taste at the beginning, then comes a rather strong bite and bitter end, common for russian vodkas. Aftertaste is floral and sweet. Basically it is very common russian vodka, anise flower taste brings some unusual nuance, but it is so thin that this should not be called as a flavoured vodka. It’s okay to sip, anise taste brings some variation, but I’m not sure if I want to buy this another time.
