Default Moonshine

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.

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.

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.

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".
