Star Kay White Food Flavour Extract - 60ml Basil 2 "interesting.." Graziella 12 February 2015 i adore basil, grow my own and was interested to see what extract would be like. quite pleasant flavour, but be careful not to ut too much. the flavour is not really basil. it is more like anis. smells and tastes like ouzo, however it can still be very useful--- but not as basil. A note from the team Thanks for placing your review. We're sorry that the extract wasn't to your liking and will be in touch shortly.
