This is a nice drink to have in shots on the rocks on a hot weekend day.

Let me start off that if you are a whiskey snob you most likely will not like this because there is no charred oak flavor from being aged in barrels. Now that we have established that, I can say that this is one hell of a unaged moonshine spirit. I have tasted many moonshines both off the store shelf in Gatlinburg, Tennessee and also from the backwoods out of an unlabled mason jar. Georgia Moon has an incredible corn flavor. It is not about high proof or to get you black out drunk. It is simply a smooth unaged corn liquor. If you buy moonshine that is made from neutral spirits, you with get a liquor that tastes very much like vodka or rubbing alcohol. This is best served chilled and sipped on while relaxing after a long week. Not to chug or to take as shots, but sipped and passed around with your friends around a bon fire. I have bought many jars and plan to continue buying them!

I bought a jar of this down in Jacksonville, FL 46 years ago. It was some really good stuff. Is this the same as it was back then? I don't think this the label has changed much since then either. I hope it hasn't changed.

Theyy are lying. It's seriously bad. Clearly this must be more of a novelty type spirit.

I have drunk just about anything and everything. From absinthe to apple brandy. From Budweiser to Boddington's. From scotch to bourbon to whiskey. Never had the backwoods stuff before and I choose very carefully what I wanted my first shine to be. Tasting this, it definitely did not disappoint. If you can't taste the corn in this mash then you're not open to taste anything. It is incredibly strong and abrasive on the news, as I believe it's supposed to be, and has elements that you can't get from a good bourbon. If you like to drink something for the sole purpose of enjoying what's in the drink, then this is definitely something that's going to keep you coming back for more. I plan on trying other kinds of shine after this but will definitely get it again. If you get it, enjoy it. If you drink it looking for something in particular, then you're missing the purpose of moonshine.

It's a smooth corn whiskey reminds me of back home in North Carolina approve could be high but otherwise it's pretty good stuff

I'm a huge fan of real moonshine this stuff tastes horrible and I would not suggest it to anyone. If you are in to cheap stuff that taste like crap than it's for you. As for me I'll stick with the still illegal and truly real moonshine.

I've had 4 jars of it so far ...it's great !...I'm a lover of whiskeys aged or unaged and this is just like my folks stuff back in Ireland ; poteen but with corn instead of barley and if you need to age it ,then buy a U.S. 1ltr oak barrel from master of malt and age your own ;with a wee bit of honey in the barrel it certainly opens up a new profile !...there's nothing wrong with experimenting guys ..slante beatha agus Dia do beatha !

This is what I imagine paint thinner tastes like. I'm not the sort of person who only drinks the finest single malt - I like a fair many blends, and love bourbon. This, however, has no redeeming qualities whatsoever!
13th February 2015
By far the worst liquid garbage i have EVER DRANK!! SHOULD BE ASHAMED TO EVEN CALL IT MOONSHINE!! TASTES LIKE THE SHITTIEST CHEAP VODKA RE DISTILLED IN SOME APARTMENT PRESSURE COOKER! TASTES LIKE THE HEAD OR TAIL OF A DECENT SHINE!!!!!

This was my first try of Georgia moon. Not let down at all. Not bad shine. Smooth 100 proof. I will be a return customer at this price
7th December 2014
what happen to 100 proof? That was very smooth.

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
27th July 2014
I am a redneck and I have drank so moonshine. This stuff is good and it is clear.
21st July 2014
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.
15th February 2014
the second i started drinking it i already felt hungover haha

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.
17th July 2013
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.

Standing inside an open garage out of the rain while one poor sod tends to the BBQ with an umbrella - a far cry from Kentucky but the reality of Scottish summers....... I pulled out this jar of 'moonshine' and got the anticipated response - WTF is that!!!!??! The authentic packaging and srew top lid, a sweet blast of rough, harsh corn following by a swig of what turns out to be a lot smoother and sweeter that anticipated..... It's just perfect. Does what it says on the tin and got the attention from the guys as we passed the jar round for a swig. This is not designed for nosing in crystal glasses, it's for warming the cold summer days and sharing with friends straight from the jar. Love it. .......... (if you want a tall sipping drink, mix it with sugar and 1/2 lemon juice into a tall glass filled with crushed ice - also fantastic). Paul.

The nose obviously reeks of new make spirit – rose petal marc along with popcorn and peanut butter. The palate is clean and as expected pretty straightforward. Corn meal, burnt butter and rose petals. It’s soft and slightly oily with a developing peppery note. The rawness is balanced by only being bottled at 40% and a light syrupy sweetness. An interesting insight into their new make, but it would have been better in my opinion to bottle it at cask or still strength, that way it would be the real deal.
