    Original Moonshine Clear Corn Whiskey

    Spotted this on Uncrate:

    "We'll admit to having sipped on illegal hooch more than once or twice, but
    if you'd rather not roll the dice with your eyesight or possibly your life
    then grab yourself a bottle of Original Moonshine ($TBA). This 80 proof clear
    whiskey is charcoal-filtered and distilled four times in a Prohibition-era copper
    pot still for a drink that's all-natural and gluten-free, with a flavor that's
    smooth, mellow, and surprisingly mixable. Drink out of a Mason jar with whole
    fruit chunks for extra authenticity points."

    80 proof and distilled four times? FAIL.

    I get a lot of corn out of Virginia Lightning myself, and I think it's damn good. If this is from Belmont Farms (it's not on their website), it's a big step down from Virginia Lightning at 100 proof. IIANM, Copper Fox is in the same vincinity.

    The only unaged Corn that I thought was as good as or better than VL was one I opened today: Glen Thunder. Great work guys.

    P.S. Helluvalotta misinformation on that website [the Stillhouse one].

    I'm not that trendy. I would have used the word "pathetic".

    I know for a fact it is from belmont farms. A lot of people say they get corn in vl. I do not at all. You get the taste of true corn from our glen thiunder. In my opinion. Misinformation on our site?

    No, sorry, I meant misinformation on the Original Moonshine site.

    Re: Original Moonshine Clear Corn Whiskey

    I don't mind the VA Lightning so much either on an odd occasion.

    The one thing I read about for white whiskey who had an opinion on it, is that if the company has to put it in some funky bottle or make a gimmick out of its jug like past then that was a sign to steer clear...

    here was my 2 cents on VA lightning.
