    This sounds absolutely amazing! Although I have to ask, what would the shelf life for a bottle of homemade cinnamon whiskey be? Any tips on how to store it?

    TheTimothyBlack> Hi. I'm a bartender for 7 years. This is a great idea, if you have lots of left overs or inventories. The bar I work currently has lots of inventories of Chivas Regal Whisky. It's not a popular Whisky in my bar. My owner wants me to get rid of the inventories as soon as possible. So, she asked me to make some colorful and tasty cocktails to attract customers. I think that's just not a great idea. Because Chivas is too smoky to mix with other liqueurs and juices. It's just don't match with anything. I have tried some recipes from book, but Chivas is just not a good material for mixing. Whisky lovers love to drink and enjoy the whisky straight and neat. That's why I love this idea. For a regular drinker like you, yes, don't bother making it. It is expensive to make it and buying from stores is much cheaper and quicker. But if you ever get a whisky that you really don't like from a friend, I think this is a great way to turning it into a treasure/a good drink.

    It's 22 bucks a handle. Why bother?

    I made this following directions exactly. I tasted after 5 days, before adding chiles. Bland. I added 6 chiles and tested again in 24 hours. PERFECTION!!! NOTE: Chiles are NOT optional. ;)
