Do you mean will it keep, or can you make it taste like whisky? If you mean the latter, I'd imagine no, as whisky starts life as a kind of strong beer (or at least a wort). from this a clear spirit is distilled. The colour comes from the barrels it's matured in. I may be wrong.

Yes, whisky starts as a clear spirit and the colour comes from the wood...and quite possibly caramel as they're allowed to add that.
