Ole Smoky reviews
Tasting was okay, wayyyyyy toooooo crowded for us to enjoy the tasting or even shop around... Honestly, the moonshine, the people, the tastings, tours, etc. etc. were way better if you just walked... more »
Matt was great! Flavors were awesome Got 6 to take home! Will definitely be back with the rest of the family more »
Obviously for 21+ Do yourself a favor and come to try the tastings! I brought a friend from China, it was an amazing experience! Bartenders handle crowds effortlessly and make sure everyone is having a great time, 9 times out of 10 there is live bluegrass music being played just outside. One of the best spots in the smokies!
Did the Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg tours; expected more; top management to the bottom needs to communicate better with staff to know what products are where and what products we can expect at the other tours. It reflects in the attitude of the people's presentation and jokes. Plus, flavors you need to listen to what we want as consumers! See you in December better be better or I will write another scathing review. Overall though impressed with the cinnamon as always and the awesome amaretto!
