In a mixer bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar together until light and fluffy.
Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Mix in the caramel whiskey.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture and stir until well combined.
