Small batch experiment, racked a gallon of cider to a secondary, this time spicing with 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg, clove, and put a cinnamon stick in there.
2 weeks later it has fermented out, and I gave it a taste test. Yuck.
I'm going to bottle it in the hopes that it settles out or ages well in 3-6 months, but it isn't tasting good. Overpowering and disgusting is the only way to explain it, a nostril full of clove and cinnamon.
Be careful with spicing
