BEST HAM I'VE EVER HAD!!!! The Scotch glaze is YUMMY! Instead of a spiral ham, my husband scored a 7-lb smoked ham and cooked for 1.5 hours, instead of 2. He adjusted the recipe to 14 servings. I'd make ham this way EVERY time, it was THAT good!

This was okay. Not my favorite way of making ham, though. Couldn't use the drippings for gravy as the whiskey did not blend well into a gravy taste.

Wow! Easy & delicious.... My cooked spiral ham only called for 1 hour of baking, so I followed its cooking instructions. This cinnamon and scotch added a great flavor...minus the cloying sweetness of some ham glazes. And the next day leftovers...yum! This recipe goes into the binder of our favorite holiday feasts.

The BEST ham ever, my kids gave me a standing ovation.... Since I "accidently" drank all the whiskey the night before, I substituted apple cider, DELISH!!!

I won't make ham another way. It was a little out of the ordinary - infused with the spiciness from the scotch - perfect for Christmas. Don't need to be a scotch drinker to appreciate it. Delicious. Although my husband was a little bummed I used so much of his scotch!
