Hiram Walker Original Cinn sample for review courtesy representatives of Hiram Walker. All opinions, reviews and spirits’ coverage contained within are the personal opinion and decision of Cheri Loughlin, The Intoxicologist.
The new release from Hiram Walker took me by surprise. The name is catchy, Original Cinn, but the taste is where the real impact hits. This isn’t in your face, blaring heat cinnamon fire. There is a liquid bliss, silky nature to the spirit that sets the tone for this cinnamon schnapps. It reminds me of the smoothness of Werther’s Original Caramel candies with their velvety texture and sweetened charm.
Hiram Walker Original Cinn
45% alcohol – 90 proof
Aroma: Honeyed. Little burn if any at all. Sweetness of course. Cinnamon. Caramelized brown sugar.
Taste: Surprisingly smooth. Cinnamon is not ragged and harsh, but rather buttery soft like deliciously rich candies meant for long term savoring. Cinnamon sparks immediate but without instantaneous burn and heat. This isn’t fiery red hots, but rather melt in your mouth delicious pleasure. Flavors like a cinnamon stick.
