  10. I just saw this on the web: https://www.lovescotch.com/p/pacifique-absinthe-verte-superieure You may want to call them to verify.
  11. Thanks for asking. At this time we do not have any online distribution. I do know that Pacifique is available in the Washington DC area through Roanoke Valley Distributors.
  12. Hi friends, pardon if I am overlooking something. It seems absinthe is more difficult to buy these days, and I can't even find the list of recommended vendors here. I have a friend that just finished an old bottle of Pacifique and wanted to replace it, made me think I might pick up a bottle myself. But I don't know how. Can someone please point me to where I might pick up a couple bottles delivered to either Maryland or North Carolina. (please don't tell me I have to drive to the far coast!) Much appreciated
  13. 2017 Fremont Coffee Cinnamon B-Bomb. The best vintage of this that I've ever tasted. Huge chocolate pudding, even more gigantic cinnamon bark, somewhat muted coffee (a definite plus) which has given way to a delightful vanilla bean underpinning. Absolutely in my all-time top five beers.😘
  14. Nice to see you around, MPC! Nice to see anyone around, for that matter. I was about to start a "Knock, Knock" thread. I've been wanting to try that one. Saw it at a bar the other day, but I couldn't ask to taste everything. I had a 2008 Marteau Absinthe de la Belle Epoque last night. That stuff has aged out just beautifully!
  15. Roku gin (didn’t know it was available in the states yet until now)! https://distiller.com/spirits/suntory-roku-gin
  16. Oh, yes! Babylon Berlin... has some pretty good depictions of absinthe, and in several episodes. And it's a very good show too about "life" (?) in the German Weimar Republic in 1929, and I guess just before the stock exchange crash. So Berlin is pretty vibrant, but it also has some problems (which we all know led to a useless painter and a bum from Austria taking the role of Fuehrer). Well. About absinthe in Babylon Berlin: There's no burning. The absinthe louches. And they use a glass fountain as Austin-Verdegris said above. But I don't think that kind of glass fountains were available in 1929, so that's the one bad remark I had. But otherwise I think they showed it in all the right manners (I guess). Abinthe is quite frequent (sort of) but in a rather shady way. Yes. Absinthe was never banned in Germany. But in the show it's more or less a drink served in brothels.. And that I don't know if it has some truth to it? ... Beside the episode described by A-V above, absinthe is depicted in at least two more episodes but then only louched up in glasses (bubble glasses). And there's also another kind of fountain you can see in the background some times... I just can't say what episodes (exactly) because I've been watching the show on SVT (Swedish National Television) and there they've combined two Netflix episodes into one. More about the show: Look it up on IMDb if you want to know more. But just to give you quite a good representation of what you can expect, watch a short "tribute" here on YouTube. I'd like to say it's a must see... the whole series that is! PS: Here's the absinthe (with the fountain) scene, but dubbed to Russian (I guess) @ vimeo. PPS: There's not a lot of nazi hooligans in this show. Very few actually. I don't know just how historically accurate that is, but to my knowledge Berlin was quite a big communist (or red) stronghold, at least compared to Munich and (I guess) before 1931 to 1933. (?)
  17. I saw some online information to the effect that the shop Vert d’Absinthe on rue d Ormesson in Paris has closed. Does anyone know whether this is true? Anywhere else with a good selection of absinthe in Paris?
  18. The day was alright. Thanks for the b-day wishes. Hope you guys are doing great.
  19. I've had a couple of the oak-aged Gustav and they were fantastic. I'm a big fan of oak-aged absinthe, I haven't tried the regular Gustav.
