About Flavored Whiskey

About Flavored Whiskey
Flavored whiskeys are distilled alcoholic beverages produced form grain (rye, corn, barley) that have had additional flavoring included. These flavors cover a wide array from honey to apple to cinnamon. Most of these flavored whiskies are from North America, although there are a few from Europe.

While these can be enjoyed over ice, most are used mixed with soda or tonic or else in a hot toddy.
