Default Where Does Flavor Come from?

A Google search got me nowhere, so figured you guys could probably help me out.

When people describe whisky they often say notes of chocolate, coffee, toffee, floral,etc... Where do those flavors come from? Are they added on purpose? Are they not really there? Just something similar? If it's from the barrel, how did the flavors get there? Or is it more like a trade secret for each distillery?

Thanks
