this thread will be of interest regarding the "less that 30 days" statement. Chuck refers to it as "unaged". Maybe he will weigh in on the subject.
The jar I had was as clear as water. In my limited experience even those blanco tequilas that spend 40 or 60 days in wood show a faint yellow cast when viewed as a full bottle, but look completely clear when a shot of it is poured into a glass.
I have had a jar of GM. Don't waste your money. Instead buy a fifth of Virginia Lightning.
Georgia Moon is not aged. It is 90% corn, 5% rye and 5% malt. Mellow Corn is Georgia Moon that has spent about four years in used barrels.
Corn whiskey is whiskey, i.e., distilled out at less than 160 proof, whereas vodka is neutral spirit, distilled out at more than 190 proof.
Vodka can be made from anything but 90% of it is made from corn.
The lemon and peach expressions of Georgia Moon came out in September but they're only sold in North Carolina and Virginia, which is where most of the corn whiskey of any kind is sold.
I seem to remember that I was drinking the Mellow Corn alternately with Old Grand Dad 100 BIB at that time, and my recollection is that I could hardly tell the difference between the two. It was a while ago though. And you know what booze does to our memories (thank heavens).

I am gonna make an effort to "explore" my Mellow Corn real soon.
If mellow corn was aged in new oak barrels would it be considered a bourbon?
Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.
The difference between bourbon and corn whiskey is the aging, in the sense of two whiskeys with the same mash bill, both more than 80 percent corn, if it is aged in new, charred wood it is bourbon, if unaged or aged in new uncharred or used barrels, it is corn whiskey.
