  1. Thanks to all of ya. I'll be using it to grab a present...and some presents to myself.
  2. Gah! I've missed out. These guys have sales often? If so I might have to check for x-mas specials.
  3. USA is a big place, are you from all of it?
  4. Like Butch, I finally got my bottle from DUNY, and after letting it rest a few days had the chance to try some. Wow! Of the 4 brands I've tried thus far (Kübler, La Muse Verte & Lucid), this is my favorite by a good margin. Smoothest so far, and rather creamy. I like mint, but here it was delicate and not even remotely overpowering. The vanilla taste was there as well; but where the mint was up front, this flavor was at the back end...helped to give it a smoother finish to my mind. I'd have posted a review, but I just don't feel competent enough to do so, with only 4 brands total to have crossed my palette. A good bargain, though; and not only will I be keeping some on hand at all times, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Obsello to any absinthe fan!
  5. I've kept tabs this seller for months now; the glassware s/he sells is nice, if you enjoy the uranium glass effect like me. Usually this seller offers glassware shown in this post of mine. The glassware is authentic in that it is uranium glass, and effects under UV light will show it as such. However, this stuff tends to be circa 1920s; my own set is made by Cambridge and ~1927. So, while these are excellent cocktail glasses, and often (as is the case with my own; which is spot on at 1.5 oz) have etching that can be used as a dosing mark, they can't possibly be "absinthe" glasses; absinthe having been banned a decade prior...thus no manufacturer would have produced them as such. In fact, if I'm not mistaken, all uranium glass was produced during the depression era; which post-dates the ban of absinthe worldwide. So, if you are looking for glasses like the ones offered by this guy, you are better off just searching for suitable uranium/vaseline glassware. It's fun, particularly neat for blanches, but you won't find an authentic uranium absinthe glass I'd think. Considering how much the seller hauls in for these pieces I'm tempted to sell some myself; having bid against her/him on a couple sets I know the profit that's being reaped here...but I'm just not that motivated really. If you're interested in having genuine vaseline absinthe glasses, your only option is to have them custom made. Raw vaseline glass cullets can be found on Ebay and elsewhere; and I'm sure that with some per$uasion an artisan glassblower would be able to handle the job. I've considered doing this myself but haven't quite gotten around to it, but I may hit a local renfest when the season rolls around and make inquiries. The only manufacturer still crafting vaseline glassware, that I know of, is Moser Glass; I've already e-mailed them asking about the possibility of them starting a line of absinthe glasses, but I suspect it will take interest from others to motivate them into the attempt.
  6. For a moment there I thought you were composing a country music song...
