Cellar-made Grappa from Trentino-Alto-Adige, about 130 proof. Delicious, actually.

I've tasted "White Dog" at several distilleries in Scotland and in Kentucky. That's what the call the raw, unaged whiskey, right out of the still. They barrel it at this high proof (140 - 160) because it reduces the storage space required while it ages.

It's water-clear* and in Scotland tastes a bit of the malted barley and yeast that made up the mash, a little like bread. At Kentucky bourbon distilleries it tastes of the corn that makes up at least 1/2 of the mashbill. In both cases it's a pretty fiery tipple because of the the high alcohol content. Once aged it is typically diluted down to 80 or 90 proof for bottling by adding spring water.

*The color comes from the charred interior of the oak barrels used for aging.

I've read that some people [the certain nationality will remain nameless] resort to drinking gasoline when their hard-liquor of choice runs out. Might be an urban legend, though.

My uncle had a still and made his own moonshine. Had a few drinks in my time. Not the smartest thing that I ever did.

A big double-shot of Everclear. It was a house party with students from a "party school" and there I was in the kitchen when a couple of young jocks handed me a glass to "down" like amateurs. I had no idea what it was. We did, and credit to my mas machismo, I was the only one who wasn't doubled over with my head between my knees. Harsh though, like a demon. I could feel the furrows in my forehead they made Botox to correct. I was breathing fire. Over these silly children, though, I had triumphed. I walked one foot in front of the other, half-blind, throat-scorched, mute, but upright and away.
