Mix bourbon, maple syrup, mustard and orange marmalade in a sauce pan and heat over medium low heat until all ingredients are melted together. Remove and reserve.
After ham has been in for 1 hour, remove foil and put back in the oven for another ½ hour. Then start basting with your glaze every 10 minutes for another 30-40 minutes.
