Hard Cider update

Racked to secondary today onto 1 oz broken cinnamon sticks and 4 whole cloves that were soaked in spiced rum.  Gravity check was at 1.004, placing ABV at 8.66%.  Aroma of fresh apples.  Taste of slightly sweet apples giving way to a clean tart apple finish.  I like the flavor of the cider overall better than the experimental batches which seemed to have more esters/phenols leaving a mineral-like finish.  This cider finishes clean which to me is a lot more palatable.  We'll see where the spices take it in a week or more.
CHEERS!
