Long time lurker, first time poster!

We recently moved from the UK to the US, so I am now overwhelmed with choice! Looking for a good whiskey FO, or an EO approximation. I've got a good gin EO mix. Husband is opening a distillery and I've been tasked to make booze-based soaps (which I quickly convinced him is not a good plan, but booze-scented is!). Tried a boiled down whisky syrup, but scent dissipated quickly and isn't really cost effective for larger batches.

Any suggestions on suppliers? I've found candle scents, but unless someone's actually used it and can vet its skin-safe claims, I tend to leave it for the candles. (However, I am doing candles, so any suggestions for whiskey candle FO is welcomed, too!)

Thanks in advance for any guidance!
