      Here is an example of a contemporary recipe in the tradition of
      flavouring whisky -
      Herb Cordial
      http://www.godecookery.com/begrec/begrec67.htm

      By eliminating the caraway seeds and vanilla bean we can get a
      Drambuie-like liqueur -

      Whisky Cordial
      3 cups malt whisky
      1 cup sugar
      1/4 cup floral honey
      2 sticks of cinnamon
      1 whole nutmeg, crushed
      1/2 tsp whole cloves
      7 cardamon pods, crushed
      3 whole allspice (pimento)
      peel of 1/2 lemon
      peel of 1/2 orange
      Saffron threads to give yellow colour
      Macerate (steep) for 3 weeks. Strain. Sweeten. Bottle.

      By experimenting in this way, one can come up with some interesting
      results.
