Licorice & Aniseed


I am completely new to mixing my own liquids and I have just ordered some flavourart anise and licorice flavours. My question is related to mixing these so they don’t overpower each other. I am trying to get a taste similar to black jack sweets we used to have in the UK and was wondering if anyone else had tried mixing with just these 2 flavours.

Also, just to add - these will be added to a 50/50 base.

Thanks - Andrew

These ratios seem to be pretty common. I’d start with a little less and add more if it needs it.


Thanks Jo!

Forgot to order blackcurrant though! I did order forest fruits - do you think that would work?

Thanks again

I use it as a fruit enhancer and sweetener. I also like it with tobacco. I use it regularly with amazing results.

I like a bit of anise in my custard mixes along with some Lemon (FE). Delicious!

No matter what quantity of FA licorice I use it always tastes stale and musty. Any ideas on how to improve it - steeping doesn’t help at all.

Thanks - Andrew

FA does a very good Black Jack concentrate that I love.
You could try that next time?


Thanks - I did get that one and have been steeping it at 5% for about a week but to be honest it’s still lacking. What percentage do you mix at? I use a VW battery (Ego II Twist) with a protank mini 3.

Thanks again - Andrew

I mixed it at 10% in 50/50, 6mg nic.
I use a Kangertech mini

Thanks - I’ll try increasing the percentages a bit.

How long did you let it steep for Chewy? Thanks

I usually let my mixes steep for a week, or longer if needed.

Thanks Chewy!

Add .5% to 1.5% of FA Anise to the mix; tends to lift the black licorice out of it’s doldrums. :wink:

I started using this a couple months ago… now I want to put it in everything. I love it with fruits. It really lift up and sweeten everything.

Anise is great in tobacco mixes as well. :grinning:
