Golden yellow color. Aromas and flavors of peach, honey, sweet white flowers, and peach Jolly Rancher with a glycerous, soft, off-dry medium body and a smooth, medium-long finish displaying accents of peach blossom, baked peaches, honey soaked candied peach, and peach gummi rings. Not too much Whisky here but vibrantly sweet with pleasant floral peach notes.

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.
