Gold color. Aromas of cedar plank, spiced raisin bread, dressed fennel salad, and Irish soda bread with a satiny, crisp, dryish light-to-medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-length dill, chocolate, and roasted peanuts finish. A solid Rye Whiskey to add herbal, spicy character to cocktails.
