A hugely important category. Traditional Scotch Whisky liqueurs usually feature a blend of spices, honey and occasionally cream or a fruit essence. Recent years, though, have seen plenty of innovation from the likes of Compass box's Orangerie and a new generation of American liqueurs based on bourbon.
Drambuie's longer aged whisky liqueur, made with whiskies aged for at least 15 years and with all the extra depth of flavour and general tastiness you'd hope that implies. One we're happy to see back on the shelves again.
Seagram's 7 Dark Honey is a liqueur from Seagrams made from their 7 Crown whiskey and, as the name suggests, dosed with honey, as well as spices and other sekrit ingredients. It's bottled at a hefty, for a liqueur, 35.5% and is a subtly flavoured addition to the Seagram's range.
A premium aged version of Southern Comfort, blended from a base of six year old straight bourbon. A litre-bottle of one of the best American whiskey liqueurs, packing a higher abv and a richer, fuller flavour that S.C. fans will adore.
An interesting Canadian whisky liqueur combining two icons of the country - whisky and maple syrup. They age their quadruple distilled whisky in ex-bourbon barrels and blend it with 'Canada 1 Light' maple syrup from Quebec before resting and bottling.

We've managed to find a small parcel of Macallan's short-lived Amber whisky based liqueur, which was discontinued some time back despite winning more than one award in its brief lifetime. Flavoured with pecan and maple syrup, this is a treat for the sweet-tooths among you.
An impressive whisky liqueur from Drambuie, with the name celebrating both the legend of its creation during the Jacobite uprising of the 1740s and the company's large collection of Jacobite glassware. A blend of 21 year old whiskies that was matured for a further 24 years in a mix of sherry and bourbon oak, for a total of 45 years, before mixing with Drambuie's secret recipe of herbs and spices.
