If you don’t like egg nog, chances are you’ve never had well-made egg nog. The flavors in this Coalition Whiskey 100% estate-grown Rye finished in Pauillac Barriques barrels pair nicely with the wintry baking spices, creating layers of flavor. Try making it a week or more ahead and refrigerating to see how nicely the flavors come together with a little age.
