Gonna find out who’s noggy or nice

We blind tasted the en­tire spec­trum of store-bought egg nog op­tions to save you the belly ache.

The Coast - - HOLIDAY PLANNER - BY JA­COB BOON, AL­LI­SON SAUN­DERS AND TARA THORNE

Seven

nogs. Many Dixie cups. One com­pletely am­a­teur blind taste test. In the name of hol­i­day im­bib­ing we got to the bot­tom of the stan­dard egg nog se­lec­tion and dis­cov­ered both mi­nor and com­plex dif­fer­ences in the flavour pro­files of the yel­low (or sup­pos­edly yel­low) elixir. The re­sound­ing win­ner? Scots­burn’s clas­sic Hol­i­day Nog. But there were many rev­e­la­tions along the way. “I’m ac­tu­ally learn­ing a lot about my­self right now,” said Ja­cob Boon as the re­sults were re­vealed. Hope­fully you’ll learn some­thing, too.
