I have had shine on several occassions and I can say that I have never had any that was 'good'. It is clear as water (actually more clear) and it will burn a nice blue flame. I bought a half gallon many years ago of corn that was touted as good stuff and it took me several years to get rid of it. I would give some to whomever would try it. None ever came back for seconds. I had a pint Bacardi's bottle that I kept full of shine to take to parties to offer to the uninitiated. My mother-inlaw was always hitting my booze and she got into the "rum" one day and she accussed me of trying to poison her. She hounded me for years over this.
I will stick with ole uncle Jim Beam
