Even Moonshine Is Going Upscale With Funky Flavors and Tasting Sessions
"Guys, we nailed this one,” said “tastemaker” Josh Madore of Sugarlands Distilling Co., as he poured thimble-sized shots of butterscotch moonshine for a group on a recent afternoon. “It tastes exactly like the bottom of grandma’s purse.'"
Purse? No. Boot lost in the hog stye 3 years ago, maybe, although I would probably take the boot over moonshine. Serve it up with a side of moldy collard greens.
"Leonette Ware and Rhonda McKinnon, sisters from east Tennessee, did a tasting at Sugarlands during a birthday trip. Ms. Ware described the flavors as “more vibrant” than those she had tasted at other distilleries."
Apparently "vibrant" is a synonym for nasty in Tennessee. Who knew?
Please go try this dreck, and report back to Maddog on your findings, write a tasting review, if you survive the experience. I would happily post it on the back of your tombstone. But please do not expect Maddog to partake. I am old enough, and have enough money to buy budget whiskey which when compared to this dreck, becomes fine sipping whiskey, er whisky, er whatever . . .
