Proof66 Notes

Ole Smoky Original Tennessee Moonshine is the that is un-aged (which is why it clear instead of the more customer brown hue acquired from aging) and made from a blend of 80% corn and 20% unnamed "secret" grains (very likely wheat or rye).

Ole Smoky whiskeys are made in Tennessee at the Ole Smoky Distillery. They claim a heritage of "true moonshining" where their ancestors first settled the Smoky Mountains and got by with a little help from illicit distilling.

I grew up in the SAME Appalachian mountains as "Ole Smoky" and Popcorn Sutton. I was drinking Popcorns white liquor before anyone but us locals knew who he was; and have a good grasp on the category. This is ROUGH. I suspect there is a good amount of sugar added to kickstart the fermentation. If your around Gatlinburg, I suggest you try Davey Crocketts white liquor I tried this weekend. Better corn flavor and not as harsh. And yes Muncher... If you only have one grain, It leads to a strong flavor of that grain.

Its supposed to be rough, its freaking moonshine. Deep corn flavor and heavy alcohol. Decent shine

Tastes like a combination of rubbing alcohol and creamed corn juice. Only way to get it down is to cover it up with strong flavored mixers and plug your nose while drinking fast.

The reason for the strong corn juice flavor is the same reason most whiskeys have a blend of grains. To diversify the flavor profile. Unfortunatly this category is about proof not quality. Remember.... there's a reason they age whiskey. It gets better!

Great corn flavor and smooth. It's 100 proof but I can't tell by drinking it straight from the jar!
