Evan Williams Holiday Egg Nog - Review

Holidays the Kentucky Way

Evan Williams Holiday Egg Nog is a blend of Kentucky Straight Bourbon and traditional southern-style eggnog

Eggnog simply tastes like the holidays: rich cream and egg blended with sugar, spices, and — for the adults — a splash of bourbon, whether its to liven up the party or make the relatives a tad more bearable. This year, forego the homemade version and try Evan Williams’ own holiday concoction, a traditional southern-style eggnog blended with seven-year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon.

Eggnog fans will appreciate the velvety custard flavor and subtle winter aromas of cinnamon and nutmeg, but more importantly, whiskey lovers will appreciate the taste of Evan Williams bourbon, whose toasty vanilla and caramel flavors leave a light, spicy finish. Be sure to chill the bottle well, however, as warm eggnog amplifies the taste of alcohol and detracts from its other flavors. Serve alone or garnished with a cinnamon stick.

Price: $8 (750 ml)
