Shine Nog Is The Whiskey Equivalent Of Liquid Holiday Candy

Being the holidays and all, eggnog and anything related to it is one of the drinks of choice right now, especially if you spike it with a little whiskey. The Ole Smoky Distillery out of Tennessee wants to eliminate the work for you by making a liquor-laced eggnog drink, and thus has reintroduced for another year its extremely popular Shine Nog.

Now I’m not normally one for covering a lot of whiskey liqueur here at The Whiskey Wash, but this thing looks just too damm interesting to pass up. What you’ve got here in a 750 ml mason style jar is a drink that, according to the distiller

is not egg based, but a cream and moonshine liqueur that makes for a smooth, easy to drink cocktail festive for the winter season.

Shine Nog is bottled at 35 proof and should be pricing for at least $20 depending upon where you can find a bottle. Ole Smoky CEO John Cochran says of it that “don’t let the bottle fool you, it’s white in color so it looks like milk.  And it tastes like cookies and cream.  Serve it ice cold, on the rocks or blended using one of our recipes.”

And, speaking of recipes, here are a few below for you to use courtesy of Ole Smoky. Here’s to some holiday cheer!
