Name that veggie (herb?)

Was given a bag of this stuff. Kinda smells to me like a cross between basil and light anus anise. Bag just says product of Hawaii.
Any ideas?

Which kinda reminds me of a bad joke:
Two guys were flying out to Hawaii on vacation and were arguing about how to pronounce the state. One said it was Huh-why-ee, the other said it was pronounced Huh-VIE-ee. So they asked another passenger his opinion, and the man said "it's Huh-vie-ee".
So the second man, all cocky and shit, said to the passenger, "Thanks for proving me right!"
To which the passenger replies "You're velcome, Mein Herr"

Looks like some kind of basil. There are a ton of different varieties and they all smell different to one extent or another. Genovese basil, lemon basil, lime basil, holy basil, cinnamon basil, ad infinitum.............

Thanks, Taminator,
I thought possibly basil also, but the leaves on this are about 3 inches long and 2 wide. And the only basil I'm familiar with that has an aroma of licorice is Thai.
Anyway,I've already dried it out and will probably end up using it as a basil regardless.
