I never would have considered buying a cherry anise preserve since I really don't like cherries and anise can have a really strong licorice flavor... my husband loves anise so we gave it a try. For someone who doesn't like cherries or too much anise, this was actually really good; no flavor was too strong, but strong enough to capture the essence! My husband keeps mentioning we ran out... highly recommend to try it, even though it sounds really unique/strange.
Absolutely AMAZING! Definitely one to re-order
