Dark amber color. Aromas of seasoned wood, olives, caramel sauce, and dill with a slightly chewy, crisp, dryish medium body and a tingling, brisk toasted pine nuts, dried figs, banana chips, rye seed, dill, and caraway finish. A punchy, bone-dry Rye that opens up with water; serve on the rocks or in stirred cocktails.
