  1. I enjoy Herbsaint a hell of a lot more than Lucid, for what it's worth. And it's cheaper, too.
  2. Working from home this afternoon with my first glass of Ridge Verte. I can tell I'm going to need more than 1 glass to get to know this one, it's incredibly layered.
  3. I'm on my 2nd bottle of Obsello and I really find I prefer it to Mansinthe, personally. There's a powdery finish to Obsello that someone may or may not have told me is Hyssop-- I can see that bothering some people but it simply adds to the experience for me. Still waiting on my Ridge to arrive after a mix-up (on my part) with my Caddell-Williams order so I can't add to that. I will give a big + to the Delaware Phoenix suggestions-- Meadow of Love is my favorite liquor of any kind.
  4. Ordered the Verte from C & W. They were pretty stunned to get 2 mail orders for the same product "already this morning" (10:15 pst). Ridge will be my #9
  5. Lucid was my introduction also, though I can't say I enjoyed it all that much. Whatever you try, have fun with the journey!
  6. I might suggest Marteau as an excellent true absinthe that doesn't pussyfoot...
  7. This "3G Cocktail", http://www.barnonedrinks.com/drinks/-/3-g-13355.html I used VP, instead of Ricard, for the rinse... and Stirrings ginger liqueur.
  8. OYO and St. Germain gimlet Great combination.
  9. Hung mine in my office this morning. Great job everyone!
  10. began with a 10ml 3:1 Herbsaint. Now enjoying a really great Lagunitas Brown Shugga. This has a phenomenal mahogany color. Too sweet for more than an occasional treat, but I'm glad I tried it.
  11. Heavy Seas Smoke on the Water, Imperial Smoked Porter.
  12. Indeed, I consider myself quite the fortunate fool!
  13. I personally don't recommend Lucid as a beginner absinthe; it was my first and -- if it weren't for this a'here forum -- would've turned me off the green stuff for good. Lucid remains the worst I've tasted (again, thanks to all of you people).
