Place the ham in a roasting pan with the fat side up. Using a sharp knife, score the surface of the ham in a crisscross pattern, making cuts about 1/4 inch deep.

3. Prepare the Glaze 

In a small saucepan, combine the honey, bourbon, brown sugar, Dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, ground cloves, and ground cinnamon. Heat the mixture over medium heat, stirring constantly until the sugar is completely dissolved and the glaze is smooth.

4. Apply the Glaze 

Brush about half of the glaze over the surface of the ham, making sure to get it into the cuts you made with the knife.

5. Bake the Ham 

Place the ham in the preheated oven and bake for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until the internal temperature reaches 140°F (60°C), basting with the remaining glaze every 30 minutes.

6. Let it Rest 

Once the ham is done, remove it from the oven and let it rest for about 10-15 minutes before slicing. This allows the juices to redistribute and ensures a moist ham.

7. Slice and Serve 

Slice the ham thinly and arrange it on a serving platter. You can pour any remaining glaze from the pan over the sliced ham for extra flavor.
