Linie Aquavit  Liqueur

Linie Aquavit Liqueur 750ML      
Sku: 13689

Linie Aquavit still crosses the equator line twice, aptly earning its name. Each month new consignments of old oak sherry casks embark upon a four-month journey, taking them to 35 countries across the globe during the voyage. This unusual maturation process creates a remarkably smooth and complex aquavit. On the back label you will find a unique code containing the date of the cask’s departure, the date it returned after crossing the equator twice, and the name of the ship. Linie means line (linye) in Norwegian, referring to its two crossings of the equator line. You can trace the voyage of your aquavit at www.linie.com.

Tasting notes
Linie has a rich, smooth profile with notes of aniseed and caraway. Matured in old sherry casks, it also has slight notes of oak and a kiss of sherry, adding complexity.

Rating

Medium pungent aromas of chamomile, cinnamon and caraway. Incredibly light and crisp on the palate, with similar herb and spice flavors with a saline backbone. Smooth in texture it finishes dry, spicy and clean. Chairman’s Trophy

Light amber color, very bright and clear. Subtle aromas of orange peel are deep and clean, with undertones of dried fruit. In the mouth it is dry and savory, suede in texture with with slight sweet spice, nutmeg, caraway, and dried orange peel. Exceptionally balanced and smooth.
