    Shine on Georgia Moon

    http://www.procyon.com/~froody/why/su/moon.html

    I saw these mason jars in the liqour store when I made my purchase yesterday....the above review tells alot!

    "I say try it. It's not gonna cost much, and if nothing else, one sip will teach you SO MUCH about why those other brands do what they do. You'll cuddle your vodka and whisper 'you were filtered through charcoal FOUR TIMES, yes you were!'

    "...the only way you're going to get rid of it is to either mix it (which can be done, even enjoyably), or to build some sort of combustable engine which can use the stuff as fuel."

    No thanks!

    Virginia Lightning is much better. Actually enjoyable. Although, it or I suppose, any unaged corn or rye whiskey or any white dog takes the same getting use to.

    When sampling Virgina Lightning I make double sure it hits the tip of my tongue first, that minimizes the plain alcohol taste and maximizes the fact that it is whiskey and not vodka. I don't like vodka.

    Maybe some little barrels could be constructed/purchased....and this stuff dumped as the distillate for home aging experiments. I actually found the "white mule" experience at the BT tour to be surprisingly pleasant. Yes, there is the vodka element...but sweeter.

    Re: Shine on Georgia Moon

    It would be interesting to compare these unaged whiskies to corn based vodkas...."Rain" for example is produced by BT....and for vodka had a decent taste...the corn base adds some character to the vodka that some other types lack.

    The color for Mellow Corn comes from the 4 years it spends in the barrel. So, it's much older than Georgia Moon, which I think is about 1 month old. The Mellow Corn is actually pretty good stuff.
