Georgia Moon Bottling Note
Guaranteed less than thirty days old! Georgia Moon is a very interesting and rather enjoyable drink, essentially new make, but distilled from corn.
In stock, worldwide delivery available.
Can be dispatched within 24 hours.
Bought a sample...
I give it a generous 8 because when someone recommended this to me, calling it "Moonshine", I knew what I was letting myself in for... And to that end at least, it didn't disappoint!
As to whether I'd want more of it? No. I walked around for days afterwards, in blissful sobriety, yet still with my breath reeking like a drunkard's ashtray.
There's something about this, either in its 'youth' or its composition, that makes the 40% ABV a little misleading methinks...!

slowly unscrew the metal lid and take a swig with friends.. Know instantly why it's called 'white lightening'.. You'll wake up sounding like muddy waters and feeling like Keith Richards but it's one to tick off the list (like absinth)..
Like an old cotton shirt burning in the corner of a corn field, top notes of cheap vodka and white spirit, mid tones of chilli-esque heat, base notes of regret and buttered popcorn.. Try it you might like it

This tastes. Like kerosene. I have tasted good. Moonshine and this doesn't come close. It has a scorched taste

It is clear
I am a redneck and I have drank so moonshine. This stuff is good and it is clear.

Maybe you should go back to Pink Ladys
Hey, we are talking moonshine here. This is not the stuff people sniff, taste and swear they can detect all kinds of variations. If you cannot handle the backwoods brew. best leave it on the shelf for those of us who grew up with it.

When I was young I found my uncle's 'Its gas! Don't touch it!' jug of corn whiskey in the barn. My Cousin and I drank a few gulps and spent the day being giggly, puking lil underaged farm-drunks. ahh the horific tasting memories.
I later found Shine On Georgia Moon Corn Whiskey at a liquor store in CO and decided to try it. i recall my first reaction being one of disgust. But I choked it down and enjoyed the novelty of its packaging.
SOGM is a rather authentic flavored corn whiskey. For those who have complained about its green flavor, it is what it is. If you like scotch, don't drink shine. Now days there are many legal moonshines available. They are filtered to make them taste more 'paletable'. Most shine of the pre-legal days were produced quickly, not very filtered and poorly bottled. SOGM is all three.
I saw a comment concerning its strength: it is true that most real Shine is far stronger. This corn whiskey came out before the Moonshine craze of recent. It was very illegal to market or produce moonshine. To keep it legal, it had to be toned down.
There are many well produced legal shines on the market today. most lack any corn flavor at all making them little more than a corn vodka. SOGM is a low cost corn whiskey which is best drank straight from the jar. It doesnt taste good, but it does taste real. Enjoy

To good to be moonshine, ain't good enough to be a whiskey. But I strongly recomend to try it out. Unforgetable and interresting feeling. Cheers!

If you have to use the word 'palate' in any part of a Georgia Moon review, you've missed the point entirely.

There are many terrific examples of what the Yankees call "white dog" (unaged corn whiskey), but this is not one of them. To be blunt, it smells like a filling station. There are hints of flavor on the palate, but they are totally drowned out by the gag-inducing petrol/ether smell that hits you like a sickness as soon as you open the lid. To those who find this swill easy to drink, I say: you are more of a man than I am. One sip nearly made me pass out. Just dreadful.

I got this in College as a gag and then ended up drinking it. It tastes like pure alcohol with some corn thrown in. Unpleasant to drink.
