Linie, the most famous brand of Norwegian aquavit is aged at sea where the rocking of the sherry casks and the changes in humidity and temperature impart a special quality to the aging process. The Limited Christmas Edition adds citrus and cumin characteristics to match up traditional holiday lamb, sheep, and pork dishes.
We tasted Linie Christmas Edition Lysholm Aquavit at Meeting No. 55 on February 23, 2017. We rated it very highly at 3.03 out of 5. Linie Christmas Edition Lysholm Aquavit ranks 16th overall in Other. At a street price of $67, this spirit is on the pricier side given the our rating of it.

Buttery mouth feel. Caraway.

Heard this was winter spiced, but it's not overdone - light touch. Mint jelly. Warmth.

I'm shocked by the delightful character here. Light brown character. Kind of feel like I just brushed my teeth after sipping this, however. Caramel nose.

Smell is true to the Christmas label with mint and caraway. A little hot but not offensively so. Thin texture. Heavy mint flavor building through the finish.
