If they are listed as Whiskey with natural flavors then GNS should not be present. This was the case when Red Stag came out but I have not seen the labels on the others.

I grossed over eight thousand dollars in one night. Time of your life, huh kid?
Beam identifies Red Stag as Straight Bourbon infused with natural flavors, so, no GNS which may be the case for high end flavored whiskys. With the market building though the cheaper ones could get by with as little as 20% of young whisky with the balance GNS and flavorings while still putting the word whisky on the label.
Was in a bar yesterday that had five or six bottles of Fireball on the back bar. I believe the bartender said they sell about 80 shots of it a night. And they had just sold out of Tennessee Honey. You do know there is now an Old Bushmills Honey and a Dewars Honey?
Seagram's Seven Dark Honey is flavored blended whiskey, so it contains GNS. If it's American and says 'blended' or 'a blend' on the label, then it's probably 80 percent vodka (GNS). If it just says 'whiskey,' but not 'blend' or 'blended,' it might be a lot of things, but it doesn't contain GNS.

The cinnamon flavored whiskey <products> They all want to be in the whiskey/bourbon section and "next to jagermeister". Just like every cream style liqueur wants "to be next to Baileys".
The Fireball whiskey from Sazarac sells the best of those . It appeals to the younger crowd... I was in new orleans recently and it was the one sazarac (except taaka vodka) product that was in every bar on bourbon street. Diagio products dominated the rest of bourbon street.
That's their out then, I noticed the Jack Daniels version has "blended with" whisky on it's label.
I was at TPS earlier and noticed Rebel Reserve in both cherry and honey. Since I was not interested, did not look to see if it said bourbon

I'm going to a tasting of Carolina Cock Flavored Whiskey tomorrow. Curious about this one.
Is that really the name of it? They may want to rethink that.
