Flavored whiskey is one of the best liquors to take as a shot or mix into a cocktail. People like to sip flavored whiskey instead of adding fruits or other flavors to traditionally tasting whiskey for sipping.
Depending on how you drink it, flavored whiskey is great all year round! There is a place for it in every season. Check out my list of the best flavored whiskeys below!
