Tried moonshine today for the first time. had about a 1/6th of a shot. really felt the alcohol. It burned like hell, but was surprising a lot sweeter than I expected.

I got some Apple Shine from Mac but haven't tried it yet. Think I'm gonna save it for a golf/cigar outing with the guys.

And yet, not really moonshine :D

I find the real deal (corn mash) to be some tasty stuff.

Although moonshine doesn't really exist in the U.S. It's like Cuban cigars, so I don't know what I'm talking about.

Never had the real deal shine. Everyone in TN claims they "know a guy". Bunch of liars :td

I have Shine every time I have a cold. Don't drink it much more than that. My father in law has been getting shine his whole life. It's not really my "cup of tea"

Finishing off a jar as we speak!
Its not the typical clear deal. Its been aged in whiskey barrels. Gives it a woodier taste and its pretty good potent stuff.

This article is good info for people looking for shine and have never tried it. Although the incident referenced in the article was overseas, you should still know and trust your source.

I used to make "moonshine". I really did, no joke. It wasnt called that though. I worked at an ethanol plant and we made 200 proof alcohol.

It always smelled pretty good but i never did try any...........

They make some cherry moonshine that I have thought of trying many times........

All moonshine is not the same, almost like saying you tried beer today and it was more bitter than you expected (well which beer was it?).

People make them from different ferment-able ingredients, at different ABV's, aged or not aged, barrel-aged, etc. etc. Just saying that there is a lot of variation in "moonshine". :tu

Apparently (based on a comment below the article) they added Methanol to the mix, and that's what killed them. Not advocating illegal distillation here, just saying it might be a little different situation. :tu

Article discusses the methanol
