Murky dark amber color. Aromas of marinated mushrooms, Chinese 5-spice, cacao nibs, barley tea, and carob with a supple, soft, moderately sweet light-to-medium body and an eccentric, breezy brown sugar and candied peanuts finish. A funky, sweet Flavored Whiskey with curious umami 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.
