Medium copper color. Spicy, earthy aromas of roasted red pepper, mole, ancho chile pepper, and black coffee with a slightly chewy, soft, off-dry medium body and a hot, complex, medium-length red pepper flakes, chocolate mint, sourdough, cinnamon latte, and Cajun spices finish. Slow-building heat and all manner of earthy spices make this a fascinating 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.
