    CHRISSYG's Note:

    Bourbon has such a great earthy smoky flavor and it lends itself so well to sweet as well as savory dishes. This is very simple recipe that provides BIG Flavor. I hope you will try this and enjoy it as much as I do. I used to make this with a whole loin, but it has to marinate forever and I'm just not a patient person. So I scaled back the amounts and the cooking time. If you choose to make this for a whole loin, double the marinade, refrigerate overnight and roast it in the oven basting with the reduced marinade.

      I really liked this recipe... Earthy is a great description for the bourbon flavor once the alcohol cooks off. I was afraid it would be like the bourbon chicken that you get in the mall, which is good, but not what I was hoping for....What kept me from giving the 5 star rating is that I read the previous review and cut back on the sugar. It was really good with just 1/4c not too sweet.

      Found this to be a little too sweet, for our tastes. It would be an excellent glaze for ham, but was a bit too much sugar for pork tenderloin. I spruced it up a bit with a garlic clove, and pinch of red pepper flakes. It is definately worth a try on ham
