    A friend of mine gave me about 5 shot worth of moonshine. It was produced from corn and such and is 100 proof.
    It was distilled legally in a small "distillery" in VA and was pretty awesome.

    I gave up casual and serious drinking a while back but I thought that I would just take 4 or 5 drinks of it.

    I took 5 shots over a three hour period and I don't feel drunk, although I wouldn't want to drive.

    The booze itself tastes like nothing. There is a slight burn going down and a warmness in the stomach, but it is pleasant. I can see why Popcorn Sutton never wanted the stuff around him. It's easy to drink and very potent.

    Well I don't. Moonshine is a part of American history and my family history so I thought I would try.

    100 proof isn't all that strong, just a little bit stronger than most spirits.

    100 proof is weak, dog.

    Ive had some peach moonshine, it was delicious but it wasn't mine so I only had a chance to taste it. It was very smooth.

    Most moonshiners proof it down to make it drinkable without having to mix it.

    I helped a few guys finish off a bottle of moonshine almost ten years ago. I ended up blacking out, woke up next to an ugly girl, and had a hangover, iirc.

    I had some homemade lemoncello on NYE.

    It was made with everclear and resulted in my time traveling.

    I distilled peach moonshine when I was a kid, in the woods. Pretty good.

    I drink whiskey straight and don't black out to often.

    I normally go through about half a 1/5, but I've polished them off without losing time.

    Yeah I have, it was fucking brutal like drinking methyl hydrate ( I assume), I don't remember exactly what proof it was but it was ridiculously high, I managed to choke down 2 coffee mug's full and must say I got quite fucked up and woke up in the morning half in half out of the front door of my house with no clue how I got there, I also drank a case of beer before the shine so that probably played a role.

    Well, there are places in this country where liquor is not readily available or even accessible.
    Whiskey like we know it, takes skill, aging, tons of money, and experience.
    Gin, same thing applies.

    Corn whiskey moonshine is really about the buzz and the drunk, plus the fact that it is part of folklore.
    This stuff is basically a neutral spirit so it is easy to disguise--we hid the stuff in water bottles in Iraq/Kuwait.
