Used to live in Roanoke VA and the area around Rocky Mount in the county south was/is well known for producing high quality shine. Often had a few sips at parties back in that time, often with the damson plums or cherries soaking in the bottom. I prefer a good bourbon -- okay, even a mediocre bourbon -- but good shine is okay.

I've had a couple shots or big sips. Little too potent for my tastes. I like bourbon too.

Tried it once and only once. I thought I was on fire from the inside out.

When i was in Panama City Beach on spring break and i ran into some guy from Columbus, GA who had a bottle of moonshine. I decided to try it (after him, of course) and it wasn't to bad.

Yes, I have drank moonshine. It's really easy to find in NC.

A while back in Russia (late 1990's) I had a lot of homemade vodka, it was rough.

Back in the 60's I was in the Marine Corps and stationed at a base in Albany Georgia. We used to frequent a local VFW that sold moonshine in canning jars. I assume it was illegal but they got away with it. You could throw the stuff on the ground light a match to it and it would burn like gasoline.

I've heard thats how they test the quality of shine. They look at the color of the flame.
