In all honesty he probably didnít make the best shine...hereís why. When moonshiners are in it for the money they use sugar and they have done this since prohibition. Sugar gives shine that bite...hobbyists probably make better shine then he ever did, I would put my pure corn shine up against his any day of the week....no sugar added, so the drink is so smooth and flavorful itís insane....not saying he is a bad or anything like that...he just was in it for the profit at some point...probably still good drink Iím sure. Off my soapbox

No doubt your accurate on that account. I know little about shine, and Iím sure unless your a hobbyist itís all about the money. I do know I had a brother from the Army that was from Peru. All he talked about was how strong his countryís alcoholic drinks were and wanted to try some shine. At 6ft 7in, a 16 shoe size and 300lbs, he never wanted to try shine again! I handed him 16 oz and he drank it down lol. (Stupid of me it could have killed him) He never talked about his countryís strong drinks again lol. Ive had maybe 3 drinks of that stuff in my lifetime. I did ride with my cousin when I was maybe 12 years old; brought a load off the mountain in a 57 Ford all set up for hauling shine. Iím sure it was cheaply made back then it was illegal and there was a big paying market. TN and KY produced a lot of moonshine in those days.
