Other than anise being really popular in the Middle East I don't know what it has to do with apples. It sure does taste good though so who cares how it came about! After the Apple flavor became popular, the makers of Nakhla probably decided to mix anise into it and call it Double Apple since it sounds better than Anise Apple.
My Nak single apple is mostly anise flavored.
