5 Must-Try Flavored Whisky Brands

1whisky brands

Over the last few years, flavored spirits have gotten more creative.  We’ve seen odd flavors like “smoked-salmon vodka to tequila with hints of cacao. Whisky distillers have jumped on the bandwagon too releasing a large range of flavored bourbons and ryes.

Jim Beam’s extremely popular Red Stag line is one that comes to mind immediately.  The reason behind the introduction of flavored whisky?  It seems many are looking to target those that are fans of other spirits like flavored vodkas. It’s a way to open the pallets of a whole new group of aficionados.

Here are 5 flavored whisky brands you need to taste.  If your not a whisky fan, you may become one after you experience the underlying notes of these blends. These whiskies all would make a great gift.

Knob Creek Smoked Maple Bourbon

This bourbon has a pleasant yet not overpowering sweetness.  It’s a nice change for those who drink Knob Creek.  It has hints of maple and is best enjoyed neat or on the rocks.  Pair it with desserts or meats with sweet sauces like BBQ.

Red Stag Black Cherry Bourbon Whisky

Made with a slow infusion process the distillers at Jim Beam start with four year old bourbon and then infuse it with natural flavorings.  This creates a bourbon’s with hints of black cherry, honey tea and cinnamon spice.  Try all three and compare flavors for an experience like you’ve never had before.

These whiskies are amazing mixed or straight up so try it both ways to see what you prefer.

Dewar’s Highlander Honey

With honey sourced from an apiary near Aberfeldy, Scotland and paired with a secret blend of other flavors this whisky has a sweet but intense aftertaste that has the slight taste of honey and peaches. Dewar's Highlander Honey brings an amazing taste to life. The mixture is filtered through oak chips before being bottled to further bring out the unique flavors of this blend.

TAP 357 Canadian Maple Rye Whisky

TAP357 is the perfect blend of two Canadian flavors: a beautifully flavored rye and sweet maple.  The maple flavors are bold but blends so well you’ll swear the maple was freshly tapped and blended with the whisky before it was poured.  It’s refined and easy to appreciate.
