Silver Lightning Moonshine
Ascendant Spirits // California, USA
This limited-release "moonshine" is actually a corn whiskey and is made in small 500-gallon batches in a copper still. It has a 100% corn mashbill and is bottled at 99 proof.
CornMash bill at least 80% corn, no requirement to age, but if aged, must be in either new un-charred oak barrels or used oak barrels.
"Clear and sugary corn aromas are most apparent in the nose, along with plenty of raw distillate. On the palate, the flavors are round and surprisingly plentiful. Supple notes of barely ripe pear and honeydew melon intermingle with some savory bright spices. The high proof doesn't overpower with heat. Instead it carries this weighty and almost chewy moonshine to a satisfying finish. "
