  1. Nice pics Elf! I'm thinking about putting in an order to DUNY, but gotta go check the bank account before. Can't wait to try this!
  2. On a different note, I noticed the labels being used now are different and was wondering if these were the French labelings and if the labels that were being used for the rest of Europe have just been done away with, or if these "new" labels were a complete reboot. /long-winded curiosity
  3. This. I tried a Jade or two a while back, but my palate wasn't as refined as it is now, and I was VERY looking forward to those two in particular.
  4. Yeah, I was really hoping to finally treat myself to a couple of Jades for Christmas... thanks whomever I need to blame. [whilst crossing fingers] GUH! Side note- I've been away for far too long. Taboo ≠ Tabu.
  5. +1 to Lucid being awesome for the gift sets. PERFECT gift for people just getting into absinthe (ECHO....echo......) and giving them a relatively inexpensive, all inclusive, introduction. Yeah, the glasses are a little thin, but for ~$70, a decent bottle, 2 glasses, and a spoon is brilliant! Edit: Just noticed they changed the packaging... Yeah, sure, everyone loves tits, but really? My only gripe is that I'm SOOO sick of Lucid.
  6. Psht! Voltage sag? What's that? Duh, the trip knob adds more !
  7. I don't how many musicians there are around here, but I figure at least Peridot might feel me on this one. It's a pretty nifty high gain fuzz pedal with footswitchable on/off oscillation mode built by boutique effects brand FuzzHugger(fx). The sound's alright, but the graphic makes me wanna drop $$$ on it.
  8. GUH! Those chairs are amazing for DAYS! It seems as though they have the right idea as far as opening a contemporary absinthe bar is concerned, but it's a little disappointing that their selection is so bleh.
  9. I noticed this a while back and haven't seen any mention. I know that eAbsinthe doesn't have as high a regard on the forum as DUNY or LdF, but they've got a 25% discount for all orders outside of the EU, and with the same shipping rates as LdF, some of their limited selection actually comes out to a pretty nice price. Absinthes of interest that apply to the offer are the Clandestines Capricieuse and Marianne, Helfrich Verte, BdF 60%, and Un Emile Sapin. I put in a mock order for both Clandestines and the Helfrich, and with shipping, it's only in the ballpark of 150 bones. Like I said, I'm just saying since I hadn't seen any mention of this, and I've also never dealt with eAbsinthe before, so I can't vouch for them, but this sounds like a deal, especially for people in the states that have only had domestically available products and want to try something new. PLUS, as an added incentive, they're offering free mini's of toilet bowl cleaner with every order.
  10. HOLY CRAP! I was almost positive that I was insane for not being able to find a single person who had heard of or tried Black Death cigarettes. Do you have any idea if they are still available? Last time I saw them was about 4 or 5 years ago, but I did see some Black Death cigarette papers in a tobacco shop a few months back. I asked the guy working if he had any idea about the cigarettes and he didn't.
  11. I tried Angelique a while ago, and I'm guessing it was before the Aa got reduced, because it was REALLY bitter, and personally, I couldn't get through a glass, with or without sugar. I haven't tried the newer formula.
  12. Good news- Upsynth got distro, and it's currently sitting on shelves is SC! Looked at the bottle, only to find that it's either imported or distributed by a company right here in SC! Go figure.
  13. At Green's Beverage Warehouse in Columbia, there's a somewhat expansive selection of absinthes right off of I-26 (for those who might be traveling through.) Lucid Kübler LTV Mythe (also available in 375mL) Upsynth Grande Absente Pernod and maybe one or two others in the same vein as the majority of these absinthes. There are two locations, and the one I recently went to was the Fernandina Rd. location. There is also a location downtown, and last I remember, they had Lucid, Kübler, Pernod, and maybe one of the aforementioned. There is also a Total Wine and More not more than a mile or two from the Green's off of I-26. Directions are here. I haven't been here in a while as well, but I know they stock Lucid and Grande Absente for sure. I'll update this should anything change.
  14. I recently heard something to the effect of clove cigarettes are going to be banned. I think the law states that cigarettes with "flavor additives" other than menthol aren't allowed.
  15. 'ello! Lucky you- I'm hoping Vieux Carre will eventually make its way down south...
  16. Good thing a preventative measure to keep the enzymes from breaking down the methanol is to just drink the real thing... I guess not too many of us are going to have to worry about that...
