    I've noticed every year that the Evan Williams egg nog does a big holiday business at my neighborhood Jewel-Osco (a local supermarket/drugstore chain in Chicagoland), as does Christian Brothers Egg Nog. (Christian Brothers brandy is also a Heaven Hill product.)
    The Evan Williams is pretty good. Better than the Christian Brothers, I think.
    Though not as good as home made or decent fresh dairy with bourbon/rum/brandy added.

    That's very interesting because I suspect the egg nog base is the same (both made by Heaven Hill) with the only difference being the spirit. Clearly, you prefer good bourbon to low grade brandy.

    It's been a year since I had both. But there was no confusing them - they were very distinct.
    I probably prefer good bourbon to mid or high grade brandy.

    Jeff,

    Thanks for posting your recipe for us all to enjoy. Made a half batch tonight (Gosling's 151 rum and OGD BIB) and it's great! (A bit stiff with that high proof liquor, though My wife and I each had a glass as we trimmed the tree, and we're working through the rest as we watch a film.

    We're definitely making more on Christmas.

    Take care,

    -Matt

    I would guess that this yields 10 servings.

    Not fancy, but sure sounds good to me.
    Being lazy and worried about salmonella this is pretty much what I'm going to do! I hope it's good, it sounds good! Thanks. I bought E&J VSOP but I'm not sure what kind of bourbon I will use yet, perhaps the W.L. Weller Special Reserve I just got.

    Well, Jeff my family thanks you for you Dad's recipe. I used OF Signature and spiced rum and it was a hit. Makin a double batch for New Years to be shared with friends and neighbors. This time with ER 10yr 1B. The tradition continues.
