  • 1 bone-in ham (10-12 lbs)
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup bourbon
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F (160°C).
  2. Remove the skin from the ham, leaving a thin layer of fat.
  3. Score the fat in a diamond pattern with a sharp knife.
  4. Place the ham in a large roasting pan.
  5. In a small bowl, mix together the honey, bourbon, brown sugar, Dijon mustard, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, salt, and pepper.
  6. Pour the glaze over the ham, making sure to cover it evenly.
  7. Cover the ham with foil and bake for 2-2.5 hours, basting every 30 minutes with the pan juices.
  8. Remove the foil for the last 30 minutes of baking to allow the glaze to caramelize.
  9. Remove the ham from the oven and let it rest for 15-20 minutes before slicing and serving.


  • Use a meat thermometer to ensure that the ham reaches an internal temperature of 140°F (60°C) before removing it from the oven.
  • For a more pronounced bourbon flavor, marinate the ham in bourbon for several hours before cooking.
  • Leftover ham can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or frozen for up to 3 months.
