Does the color of a whiskey tell us anything useful about that whiskey?

Does the color of a whiskey tell us anything useful about that whiskey?

What, if anything, can be learned simply from the color of whiskey? We all talk about the color when we find new whiskey and color is evaluated along with the nose and taste but what should whiskey shoppers know about whiskey color and what can it dependably tell us? For some, myself included, we just like the color of old bourbon and it's as much a part of the experience as glassware - it's just beautiful.
