Aged Eggnoglets: v3.0 "Stewart"

Aged Eggnoglets: v1.0 "The Cooking Bourbon"
Aged Eggnoglets: v2.0 "Ronny/Batt"

I kind of forgot an update on the third and final installment of this year's small batches of Aged Egg Nog. You can read about the first two iterations (and all sorts of other informative nog oriented information) in the above linked posts.

For this quart o' nog I decided to try a simple experiment. I took some store-bought Stewart's egg nog (that post is 5 years old now!) and added a pinch of salt along with 8 ounces of Evan Williams bourbon... Don't know how the the bourbon/aging process will interact with all of the stabilizers and such in the Stewart's nog, but hopefully it will turn out good. At the very least it will be interesting to see how it stands up to the other two versions.

Anyhow, that is the end of my nog agin' for this holiday season. I will do a side by side comparison come December I suppose. Until then, I look forward to Meadow Brook Farms Dairy nog hitting the shelves at the Delmar Market so I can have a taste of some solid virgin nog to whet my appetite. I will probably hold myself over until then with a refresher sized bottle of Stewart's nog (or two)...

In any event, blessed are we to be entering the nog season. It is one of this bleak life's small pleasures.
