I think the brand is Absente, if I remember correctly ..... and it tastes more like Sambuca (black liquorice [sp?]).
First, it got tossed out the window & onto the porch .... then I picked it up & slammed it on the front yard & left it there for an hour .... then went back & picked it up again & smashed it on the concrete in the porch.
I pretty much lost it that day. Our kitchen light didn't survive the incident either - it's now without it's glass shade.
