Standard Proof Cinnamon Spiced Whiskey brings big cinnamon atop a base of rye spice and sweetness.

Standard Proof Whiskey Co.’s infusion series offers a wide range of flavor infusions, from wildflower and pineapple, to mint, coffee, ginger, and pecan. Each is built off a rye whiskey base, infused for approximately 10-16 weeks (depending on the infusion), and each is bottled at 80 proof.

Their Limited Release Cinnamon Spiced Whiskey uses Ceylon cinnamon, which is considered “true cinnamon,” as opposed to the more common Cassia cinnamon which is more typically seen in everyday applications. Not surprisingly, the whiskey is cinnamon-forward and rests on a bed of rye spice and sugary sweetness. Despite being filtered using a special technique, there still appears to be cinnamon remnants in the liquid, which is opaque and when held to the light, small particles can be seen in it. This isn’t a dealbreaker for me, after all I don’t mind some pulp in my orange juice, but I can see where it could really turn some people off. I would personally prefer a bit more rye than sweetness, but I think the majority of people attracted to this bottle will find the balance between cinnamon, rye spice, and sweetness to their liking. To that end, it’s in no way a traditional whiskey, but does well achieving the task it has its sights set on.

This review is from batch number 001, bottle number 687.
