Reviews for Aalborg Taffel Akvavit
Memories
Introduced to Aalborg Taffel Akvavit by my 'in-laws' in the sixties. Ever since there has always been a bottle in the freezer at Christmas. My adult grandchildren now enjoy toasting their late grandmother who loved Denmark. Skål

A true classic caraway powerhouse
The taste of caraway is extremely potent in this one compared with most other types of aquavit out there but that’s what makes this one special. A must try!

Hammer of the Gods
the only distilled beverage I will drink straight. It has notes of caraway and dill. Strong distinct taste that doesn't linger too long. Great with spicy food. After drinking you want to watch a Bergman movie or burn down a monastery ... your choice!

Perfection.
Having grown up on Denmark this bottle was always on our table. It's never lost its appeal. The flavour is full and yet not overpowering. Aromas of aniseed fill your nostrils prior to drinking. This is the gold standard of Akvavit. Perfect chilled with pickled herrings. Can't recommend enough

Ive a Danish surname but ive unfortunately never visited Denmark. So I settled for a bottle of akvavit. I enjoyed it. The taste was very unique and stayed on my palette for a full day afterwards. Im not sure its my new drink of choice just yet but I'd definitely buy it again. I found it easier to enjoy if it had been in the freezer for a little while before drinking.

The standard
This is the Ardbeg 10 of snaps/akvavit! There might be better ones around (e.g. the Christmas version of this); but in Denmark, it used to be the standard. I have tasted a number of Swedish, Norwegian and Icelandic products, and while usually fine, they have all been quite weak. Served at room temperature. (Those that claim it should be cold just do not like snaps - drink vodka instead).
Strong but rounded taste of mainly caraway (but also other herbs). Goes very well with "open faced sandwich" (smørrebrød).

Just a how to for beginners.
Beautiful. Keep bottle in Freezer, as it will not freeze, but it enhances the taste. First time tasting ? Then do this: Breathe in, then empty the small nip glass. Then breathe out. Then you will never choke on the fumes. This has been written by a once upon a time Dane, who was brought up with this. Never have any hangover with it, and it makes you happy. that is why it is called Water of Life. Skaal.

Denmark as we love it!
Good, very clean, mellow and refreshing Akvavit. Citrus and caraway. Some dill? Drink as schapps or combined with smoked and/or pickled or cured fish (herring, salmon, mackrel), smoked pork dishes, cold meat cuts etc. In my opinion Aalborg is best served chilled, but not freezer cold. Very nice!

How does it compare to the clear in the green bottle?
30+ years ago our family drank the clear Aalborg Aquavit in the green bottle with red label. Can't find that one any more...for a while there was a clear aquavit in a clear bottle with a red/white label, but that is impossible to find too. How does this compare? Anybody know...?

When asked my secret of living to 96 I say Aalborg Akvavit. I remember my Norwegian Grandfather bringing it of of the "ice box" (pre freezer days) and serving shots to the adults. Then one day I was at a bar and the bartender said "I want you to try something new" (to United States) and he pushed a shot over to me and I was hooked.
