Junior Johnson’s Carolina Moonshine

Country: USA
Region: North Carolina
Type: American Moonshine
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 40%
Score: 81 points

The NASCAR legend was equally famous in North Carolina for his family’s moonshine, and this comes as close to that recipe as possible. Unlike most “shine”, this is distilled from grains, and the nose is crisp and clean with notes of boiled sweet corn and vanilla. The taste is thick and chewy, reminiscent of corn on the cob with pepper. The finish is smooth and lingering with a slight sweetness. Very drinkable.
