Light light gold color. Herbal aromas and flavors of freshly made sarsaparilla and ginger ale with lemon, alpine mint honey lozenge, pine forest flowers, and wood soap with a supple, racy, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a peppery, interesting, long finish that presents notes of oiled leather, white peppercorn, lemon verbena and Indian spices, and herbal talc finish. This is definitely a not-your-granddad’s whiskey; offers the cocktailian an intriguing and fun palate of flavors to play with in adventurous cocktails.

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.
