I tried some of my father-in-law's moonshine a time or three. He made wine at home and now and then a batch would go bad. So he'd run it through a "concentrator" :agree: The resulting white brandy had great nose, like you'd just want to crawl into the glass and have a nap. The first sip tastes like kerosene. Second sip isn't so bad, Third sip and on, you don't really care, your tongue and half your face is already numb and you're not going anywhere for a while.
