Everclear is illegal in some States.
I tried Absinthe once, and kept trying it...I don't think I've ever been as sick from alcohol as I was from that stuff. To this day I can't even imagine licorice without my stomach turning . The only time I've ever had Everclear was with jello shots; couldn't even taste the alcohol...which wasn't necessarily a good thing!

I keep a bottle of Everclear in my office for...ah...demonstration purposes. (Really.) It's helpful when I discuss alcohols in my organic chem classes.
But Brak, what's the deal with the pathetic 151-proof bottle you're showing? Mine's 190.
Oh I have some great memories of Everclear back in my college days. I always hung out with this one fraternity, and one party was very insane, before anyone came through the front door you had to take a shot of Everclear. My buddy and I were the ones passing it out, all I have to say is that party was one of the best i have ever experienced... i have some pics from this somewhere i will see if i can find them and scan a few in
On a side note Zodiac, one of my favorite shots back in the day was called a "Rocky Mountain Bear F**ker" it was Jack Danials, Tequilla, and Southern Comfort.
Sadly I used to drink Everclear straight out of the bottle quite a bit before I had kids.....my husband worked nights and I was bored. I never got a stomach ache or passed out...I just stayed up all night painting crooked butterflies and fairys. It just kind of scares me now, especially after my husband lit some on fire to show me how it burned.
I remember trying that back in my college days... Then I tried these two and thought... That makes that 75% taste like water... I think it ate my uvula and epiglottis because I couldn't talk or breath after drinking...
Meet hell in bottles... Everclear 191 Proof or 95% ABV and even worst taste wise Spirytus (polish spirit) 192 Proof or 96% ABV.
