A fine Norwegian aquavit aged in a fabulous and unusual manner; Linie is taken in sherry casks for a four month quest, sailing to Australia and back again before bottling. This results in many changes of temperature, speeding up the maturation in a very curious way!
Not my cup of tea !
Purchased 3 samples of this and I'm quite content to leave this one to the Nordic population so that should sum up my review in a nut shell for you all ! It's sort of I between new make spirit and car wind screen washer fluid !

Something's familiar here.
This stuff is lethal
This method of maturation isn't quite so unusual. It was used by Teacher's in 1887 to create their 'Australian Bonded Whisky': the barrels of Scotch were used as ballast on ships travelling to and from Australia.

It melted my floor and killed my friend and made my bowels explode. Do not drink.

A truly remarkable drink. You expect to have to drink aquavit cold, but this is best warm when it just slips down. A proper piece of Norwegian magic.

Amazing taste! It taste like spiced orange licorice. Gives you a nice warm feeling in your chest when ya' drink it.
