This stuff is really bad
Also from Heaven Hill Whiskey Distillery
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.
One eye open.
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.

If you come expecting the same nose and mouth feel you'd get from an aged single malt then you will be disappointed, but then again, I'm very surprised to read that anyone has actually made this mistake. A smooth, sippable liquor that tastes like melted butter and as it's slightly oily, leaves a similar feel in your mouth. Immensely easy to drink. Just a shame that it's bottled at 80 proof, could do with more of a kick to provide that authentic moonshine experience.

I had this on Superbowl day at my future roommates' condo and it didn't repulse me like it did him, but it did taste of almost pure alcohol, with just a touch of sweetness. Now since the Superbowl I've had drams of Abuelo Centura rum (aged 30 years), Macallan 18 Year (SUPERB) and Yamazaki Japanese single malt 18 year whisky and Glenmorangie 18 year and this stuff absolutely pales in comparison. It's not fair I know but 2 stars and that's being nice.
