Rating Description

Tier 3
This is a Tier 3 score in the Whiskey category. It means critics recommended the spirit but it will be a value brand or have an exotic taste.

Proof66 Notes

Midnight Moonshine is--as a moonshine--un-aged whiskey. The spirit comes out colorless because it never sees the inside of a barrel, which is more typically seen in the "brown spirits" class of whiskeys in general. Piedmont claims that it is "smoother than vodka" and "better than whiskey."

I agree with some of the reviews here. To me this is a vodka with body. I've never had "real" moonshine, so I can make no judgement there, I can only rate it based on my opinion of its flavor and mix-ability. I seldom buy vodka anymore. I find this adds MUCH more character to my vodka drinks. This is also available now in 100 proof and a martini made with it outshines any vodka martini I've had. Definitely recommended, especially in the 100 proof version.

I like it to mix with, wouldn't drink it straight its been distilled too many times and lacks any real flavor to really speak of except alcohol. Use it like you would vodka

it is smooth perhaps too smooth. I think this more closely resembles vodka instead of moonshine. Like a good vodka it mixes well.

Very little flavor, definitely more like vodka than anything else.

Ok but mostly just an alcohol taste. No other taste to speak of.

Midnight moon was on the shelf before the white whiskey trend that seems to becoming popular.  At the $20 price point I thought it might be a good entry into white whiskey.  Its nose is reminiscint of rubbing alcohol and its kind of harsh going down.  A bit like an unrefined vodka.

Nicely done if slightly atypical for the name (distilled at higher proof with the resulting less flavor).Think of it less as a whiskey and more as a outstanding micro distilled vodka (with far more taste and character). Great quality and price should make it your vodka equivalent of choice - toss the Avian Fashion Victim vodka and use this instead.
