If you can't degrease engines with it, it's not moonshine.

I thought people drank moonshine because they couldn't get anything else.

If it doesn't make you go blind it's too mainstream for me.

If it's legal, it ain't moonshine, you fools. It's just crappy un-aged whiskey.

I was telling people to "squeal like a pig" before it was cool.

Didn't we already have this thread about white liquor (unaged whisky) being drunk ironically?  Even though the distillers just sell it to get cash flow while they age their good stuff.

Just some good old boys, never meaning no harm. Beats all you saw never been in trouble with the law since the day they were born.

So basically people are commercializing something that was originally intended to be cheap in order to make a profit.

Yup sounds like hipsters are afoot.

Believe it or not, it's not bad.  I've got all the Ole Smoky stuff they're showing and it's pretty decent.

Of course, I'm whisky fan.

This stuff has nothing to do with hipsters.

As with any other foodstuff, like, say, oysters, those who drank it because they couldn't get anything else, started to appreciate it for what it was. Yesterday's foodstuff of hardship becomes today's foodstuff of fashion. Meh.

When I went on a tour of the Maker's Mark distillery a while back, they had a "white bourbon" which they offered to people on the tour that was sort of like a moonshine with the corners knocked off of it.  Dad and I figured that they were getting ready to market it soon, although they wouldn't confirm or deny that--though it is available in their gift shop.

/Dad recently moved to a farmhouse just over the hill from Maker's Mark, so I guess he'll be first to know.
 
2013-05-27 05:46:03 PM  
I used to run a still, back before they made TV shows about it.

I can afford to buy my preferred rum these days.

Meh, hipster/billy or not, I'd try it just to see what all the fuss was about. Can anyone describe its flavor? I don't see a description in the article.

Have you ever tasted an explosion? It's kind of like rubbing alcohol mixed with an explosion.

Seconded

They taste great with ice cream made with baileys, and using kailua instead of Hot fudge

They're all over the place here.  I went camping this weekend and the next camp was a bunch of 20 somethings with old Misfits tattoos, long beards and over-alls picking a banjo all night.

Oh god.  The only reason you drink moonshine is that you're poor and desperate.

I had some moonshine at a family wedding, that was the nastiest shiat I have ever tasted.

It was from the depression-era family recipe andWheaties is the secret ingredient.

Buffalo Trace White Dog Wheated Mash (114 proof) - this is the spirit used to make WL Weller and Pappy Van Winkle. It's got a much softer nose than the White Dog Mash #1 and it smells more like wet wheat than malty beer. The entry is much softer and has a very full wheat and cereal grain flavor (think Wheaties). The finish is fairly long and slightly sweet with just a bit of heat. It's hard to believe this is 114 proof as it's eminently drinkable.

Mitch Taylor's Bro: Meh, hipster/billy or not, I'd try it just to see what all the fuss was about. Can anyone describe its flavor? I don't see a description in the article.


I bought the strawberry, cherry, and apple pie.

I gotta say, the 40 proof apple pie is really good. It's exactly what it says on the "tin" but at 20% ABV it'll knock you down if you keep shooting it all night. Not as harsh as you'd imagine moonshine to be. The other stuff is harsh but decent. The cherries will clear your sinuses at 100 proof. The strawberries are bleached from the ethanol.

I bought some apple pie this Sunday and after a family get together it's gone being the clearly popular choice.

TFA says that flavored moonshine is authentic, but I was wondering how the regular stuff tastes. I figure if you put enough flavor in anything, it'll eventually become drinkable (and even more eventually, a pounding hangover).

True. I've had it with raisins, pineapple and cinnamon sticks. All of them knock the rough edges off if you leave them in there a bit. The hangover remains however.
