Default Sweet Stout / Winter Warmer

So I brewed a sweet stout about 2 weeks ago. My OG was 1.064 and now it's down to 1.029 ... higher than I expected. I mashed this at 158 ... so apparently I should have mashed a little lower ... lesson learned.

My question is this ... could I turn this in to a winter warmer by adding a nice bourbon to it? This would increase the ABV a bit and also give a nice oak flavor to it. Do you think this would turn out OK? I'm not concerned about losin any body on this, I'm pretty sure it's got plenty to spare.

Just curious if this would turn out OK, and if the yeast would be able to take some whiskey and still be able to bottle carb.

Here is the recipe:

I think it would be good. Boil the oak chips for 10-15 min and soak in burbon for at least a week. Put in secondary and let age.

I'm not talking about putting wood chips in, I am talking about actually adding whiskey to the beer.
