REVIEW: Fireball Cinnamon Holiday Nog

Fireball Cinnamon Holiday Nog Carton

What is Fireball Cinnamon Holiday Nog?

From the makers of Fireball Cinnamon Whisky comes a non-alcoholic, cinnamon-flavored holiday nog that doesn’t have the warm spice listed in its ingredients. According to the carton, “Fireball Holiday Nog is rich and creamy, energized with the bold Fireball taste you love.”

How is it?

Well, I haven’t had Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey, so I can’t say if it has a bold Fireball taste. But the nog does have a familiar flavor.

Do you like Wrigley’s Big Red Gum? Do you swallow Wrigley’s Big Red Gum, seven years of digestion be dammed? If so, then drinking this will have your taste buds thinking you’ve poured a creamy, liquidized version of the gum into your mouth. So no worries about gum wads slithering through your digestive tract for seven years. Although, you’ve never had to worry about that.

While this nog’s flavor reminds me of Big Red Gum, and it’s from a whisky brand that claims its main product, “Tastes Like Heaven, Burns Like Hell,” it has no cinnamon burn. I don’t know if that’s from it lacking the ingredients that cause the burn or if the dairy in this instantly soothes it.

I’m sure there have been other cinnamon-heavy nogs, but this is the first one I’ve experienced. And I have to say that I very much like its bold flavor, which I’ve been savoring from fancy whiskey glasses.

Anything else you need to know?

Fireball Cinnamon Holiday Nog Carton Firenog

Despite ownership of fancy whiskey glasses, I don’t drink alcohol. So I didn’t do what the carton, I mean, The Dragon recommends, which is add some Fireball Cinnamon Whisky to this to make a Firenog cocktail. (Wait. How come this nog isn’t called Firenog?) Its recipe calls for mixing one part Fireball Whisky with two parts of this creamy beverage. I imagine if you flip the ratio, it’ll turn you into the dragon that’s wrapped around the carton or make you feel like you did.

Also, note that it’s a “Holiday Nog.” So no eggs were used. But dipotassium phosphate was. I loves me some dipo-pho!


Fireball Cinnamon Holiday Nog’s bold flavor might be a turnoff for some tongues, but I adore it.
