Tasting Notes by Rocky
Nose: A predominant caraway note, with citrus in the background.
Palate: Spicy, with caraway, vanilla, cinnamon and a hint of liquorice, backed up by zesty citrus notes of oranges and lemons.
Finish: Refreshing with citrus notes overtaking the spiciness.
Comment: An excellent take on Scandinavia's national schnapps, this is lighter in body than other aquavit's I've tried, but richer in intensity and complexity. I tried this with pickled (matjes) herring and they complemented each other perfectly.

The best Aquavit I have tried! So complex and rich. Generous in orange zest and an underlying mix of ''woody spices'' such as clove and nutmeg. All of this appearing shortly after a more straight forward caraway and grassy nose. An experience highly recommended!
