The moonshine is supposed to be unflavoured and at least 90%. I think the name bodes well for the new test-suite :-)
    Yeah, I've had Karsk before in Sør-Trøndelag... Though it was there where I also was told that karsk literally means quick/fast. Hmm.

    It might mean that if you look in a dictionary but if it does its usage is entirely deprecated. Its usage is confined solely to the hillbilly cocktail.

    Ah, that eplains why I had no idea what karsk was or meant; for a second there I thought I was a poor Norwegian .

    A quick look in the dictionary tells me that 'karsk' is derived from the old norse word 'karskr', which indeed seem to be translated to either quick/brisk or courageous/bold.
