The combination of caraway/aniseed is prominent in the aroma of Lysholm Linie. Old sherry notes give a rich, rounded flavour, with aniseed, caraway and oak giving complexity. Lysholm Linie, with its classic 41.5 per cent alcohol content, is decidedly the driest aquavit in the market. With its dry style and subdued, neutral taste, Lysholm Linie is ideal for accompanying smoked salmon, marinated fish and other dishes having a mild flavour. Lysholm Linie should be served at room temperature.

"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 midpalate, 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. - Classic/Highest Recommendation"
