The Smokejumper – Filson Hard Eggnog
In this version, I set out to make an eggnog drink that calls to mind sitting around a campfire out in the forest. I found Westland Peated Single Malt Whiskey to be the perfect match for what I call the Filson Smokejumper. It has a unique taste and a nose of smoldering campfire, with just a hint of pine (resiny) smoke. The smoke is mild and acts as an essential seasoning. The Smokejumper is garnished with finely chopped spruce needles, which not only add brilliant color but also a nice, mellow conifer taste, perfect for the holidays.
