Infused Whiskey

I have been dabbling in infused spirits. The latest has me in a bit of a dilemma: coffee date whiskey. It's lovely; smoky and dark with just the right touch of coffee and a nice caramel note from the dates. And it still tastes like whiskey. It's just a bit rough to sip straight or on the rocks... Any suggestions on mixers?

I thought it might be because its a cheaper whiskey but I used the other half in an orange anise batch and it was smooth and sippable. Just my personal guess is that the more sweet the items infused, the more it helps smooth out the bite.
