Golden amber color. Inviting aromas and flavors of ginger cherry chews, sliced almonds, spice cake, licorice, dill, and candied violet petals with a satiny, vibrant, dryish medium body and a tingling, charming, medium-long finish that exhibits accents of dense black bread and honey roasted seeds. A delight of a Rye Whiskey with all the spice, floral and toasty notes you crave.
