Do not use vodka as it gives it an off taste. Everclear is the way to go.
And yes, done properly, it does taste ...

I just visited my brother in Western north carolina for thanksgiving and he was able to get two quarts of shine from a friend...we made apple pie out of one and I brought one home to NY. We drank some and it was good. I have a quart I am taking with me on a steelhead fishing trip after xmas....Good stuff and it has some history behind it which is cool. We were looking for recipes and there are many out there...I can only imagine cider would be more traditional. We used apple juice.....white sugar and cinnamon sticks....some recipes had brown sugar, some had brown sugar and white sugar mixed.
I use a gallon of whisky, a gallon of juice, a gallon of soft cider, a small bottle of vanilla extract, a bottle of cinnamon sticks and a small box of dark brown sugar. Combine all but the whisky in a big pot & simmer it a little while, let it cool then add the whisky. Put in quart jars with a single cinnamon stick in each
and pass out the Christmas cheer!
