Freedom Moonshine Apple Pie Rye, 20%

Price: $20 Issue: Winter 2014 Reviewer: Geoffrey Kleinman

The aromas from the base rye moonshine complement the apple much better here than in Freedom's other flavored offerings. Baked apple mixes with cinnamon and is supported by a bread undertone. The apple note comes off as just a little too artificial. Like the other Freedom Moonshine products, the entry is too soft and flat. The biggest problem here clearly is the proof. There's just not enough structure to do anything with this moonshine: mix, ice, or otherwise enjoy.
