Scrumptous and rich, perfect for a holiday gathering! Everyone loved it. We had reduced fat cream cheese (neufchatel)and reduced fat eggnog in the house, so I used them. The cheesecake did not remotely taste reduced fat nor did it compromise the rich flavor. I also made sure the cream cheese was very soft and microwaved the eggnog for about 40 seconds to avoid the lumps another review mentioned. I used a hand mixer, which worked beautifully. I also added a dash of cinnamon, ginger and some vanilla extract. The rum adds depth and doesn't overwhelm the eggnog flavor at all. I also had a pre-made graham cracker crust, but a word of warning - it wasn't big enough, so I cooked the leftover in a pyrex bowl, which was still yummy. The cooking time took a bit longer than the recipe suggested. I put a bain marie (pan of water) in the oven with it, and there were no cracks at all. I would absolutely recommend this for a holiday dinner or gathering!
