"My dad made this ham for Christmas about 15 years ago, and we loved it. I haven't made a different ham since and haven't loved one as much."

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Remove skin and excess fat from ham, leaving a fat layer about 1/4-inch thick. Score ham in a diamond pattern with a sharp knife. Push cloves into the center of the scored diamond shapes. Place ham with cut side down into a roasting pan.
  3. Bake ham in the preheated oven until an instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meat, not touching bone, reads 125 degrees F (52 degrees C), about 2 hours.
  4. Combine brown sugar, whiskey, and black pepper in a bowl until glaze is smooth.
  5. Raise oven temperature to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  6. Baste ham with 1/3 the whiskey glaze. Return to oven and bake until internal temperature reaches 140 degrees F (60 degrees C), basting ham with whiskey glaze every 10 minutes. Cover ham loosely with a tent of aluminum foil if ham browns too quickly.
  7. Let ham rest for 15 minutes before carving.

I have never tried any type of liquor other than bourbon with this ham. Cognac is a type of brandy, while bourbon is a type of whiskey--I would think you would end up with a fairly different fla...

BEST. HAM. EVER. Made recipe exactly as written. Delicious! I served this with some spicy black eyed peas, greens, and cream corn. Picky-eater husband thought he died and went to heaven.

Absolutely amazing used a local bourbon was outstanding. I did heat the sauce up a little before glazing the ham

What a great glaze recipe!! Will use again and again!

I served this for a family dinner and everyone was impressed. I was told it was the best ham ever! Definitely a great dish!
