96–100 pts.Wine Enthusiast: July, 2003
Potato spirit flavored with herbs and spices that’s been aged in Sherry casks. First nosings expose exotic and compelling aromas of bark, wood chips and fennel; further aeration releases heady scents of spice and honey. Palate entry of caraway-seeded rye bread; by mid-palate, the flavor profile adds mild sweetness, soft spice and that persistent caraway seed. Aftertaste is moderately oily, off-dry and intensely herbal. One of the greatest spirits ever from Scandinavia.

Stored in former Sherry casks, this aquavit famously takes a sea voyage across the world, sailing to Australia and back, crossing the equator or “linie” twice. The end result is a bright buttercup hue and mellow vanilla, spearmint, clove and oak tones, plus a silky butterscotch finish.
90 pts. The Tasting Panel (Anthony Dias Blue): March 31, 2009
Amber color; smooth and dry with licorice and caraway; long, snappy and unique.
F. Paul Pacult’s Spirit Journal: June 1, 2003
This luscious, impeccably crafted potato-based spirit is flavored with herbs and spices then aged in sherry casks. Linie brims with caraway seed aromas and flavors that are flecked with honey, bark and sherry aspects. A sensational spirit of the first rank.
