Brennivin Icelandic Aquavit (1L)

SKU #1171592 92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Nuanced and palate-cleansing, look for a mild, savory scent and bracing notes of dill, fennel seed and pine, plus a brisk, zingy finish that suggests caraway-seeded rye bread. Pair this refreshing sip with herring or other savory bites. (KN) Inner quote mark (11/2016)

K&L Notes

Brennivin is Iceland's most classic tipple. The stark black label and intense flavor have given rise to the nickname "Black Death," but the traditional Icelandic "schnapps" is all about celebrating life! Distilled from grain and flavored with caraway, it does not have any sugar added after distillation and therefore is not classified as schnapps in the U.S. This magnificent and enchanting drink is usually used as a shooter, but it's now gaining traction as a solid base for cocktails. It's definitely a bucket list type of drink. Try it at least once - you'll likely will want to try it many more times.
