Top reviews for Southwind Moonshine:

— I’ve made my own and tried white dog from a handful of bourbon distilleries throughout Kentucky... this is better than anything I’ve ever had. It must come down to the corn they use. It’s proofed lower than the hearts you can sip straight out of the still, but the flavor is complex and enticing. I need to get some better corn!!

— It was excellent. I really enjoyed the taste.

— OK , ROUGH , WILD , LIVES UP TO ITS '' MOONSHINE'' NAME . BUT NEVER MIND THE FLAVOR , THE STORY BEHIND THIS LIQUOR IS WONDERFUL , THE GUYS WHO MADE IT WORTH SUPPORTING . BUY A BOTTLE TODAY.... Peter

Brandon,
Flavor was not for me.

Ryan,
If you don’t like unaged corn whiskey, OR if you haven’t tried it before, maybe you shouldn’t be reviewing this. However, if you do enjoy unaged corn whiskey, this is a pretty strong (no pun intended) offering. Although perfectly fine taken straight, the higher the usual (>40ish%) alcohol content can mask some of the flavor. When whiskey goes much above 40% is when I would advocate for adding ice or cold water to unmask the other notes (diluting from 40% I personally leave to the professionals, at least in terms of flavor notes). To me this is a smooth at the fore corn whiskey that quickly segues to spicy, but doesn’t quite become ‘harsh’...though I admit that I would probably disagree with myself about a decade ago. Maybe not for the uninitiated, or for those who prefer something uniformly smooth, but so far as I’m concerned that leaves me some extra bottles to order and enjoy in the future.

Tommy,
Southwest Moonshine is my kind of drink. Made from corn. Flavor box did not impress me. I hate anything with rye unless it is made well.

No burn but tastes terrible

Not very good. I made a poor decision.

Didn't like the taste of it at all tasted like chewing on a piece of paper

Jason,
I thought it was awesome if you like strong corn liquor. It is definitely not for the girly man.

I did not care for the flavour but my better half did but not the burn.

Jason,
This is what corn liquor is all about, not for the girly man.

Cade,
Had a strong stereotypical moonshine taste to it, nothing really special about it I've gotten almost the same exact thing from the resident distiller.

Jim,
Very enjoyable straight up chilled... But I enjoyed making my own spin with Moonshine Manhattans!
 
ROBERT
ROBERT,
I didn’t care for i1. I will NOT finish drinking it.

It was excellent. I really enjoyed the taste.
 
Cade
Cade,
Was expecting some flare with this, but it tasted the same as the moonshine distilled in neighbors backyards
 
Bill
Bill,
Totally unlike anything I had expected. Reminded me of Cod Liver Oil. I’ll stay with the Bourbons.

D,
What a great representation of how to do curated corn whiskies well. Mild flavor, well balanced...great backstory.

Marcia,
This is the first moonshine I’ve tried that is sold retail. It was rough going down, but no bad side affects. I slept like a baby
 
Sean
Sean,
It was ok...interesting corn flavor...different than my usual brown liquors...a nice change.
 
Brian
Brian,
Wasn't really my thing. It had a very heavy corn flavor and wasn't all that smooth. Would not buy again.
 
Ivan
Ivan,
Great flavor! Smooth finish, and does not linger!
 
Justin
Justin,
I remember moonshine from the Ozarks being much smoother. I expected this to be a close cousin. A little disappointed in this one. I’ll use it as a mixer.
 
Michael
Michael,
This isn’t terrible, but I didn’t think the taste or nose was very good either. The finish is decent though. Glad I tried it, but have had much better.
