Hello from Texas,
My name is Ken.
I've used the handle of Invaliduser/Lordinvalid ever since I started gaming online. If anyone was wondering.
I am very new to Absinthe, my wife bought me a bottle of Absente. Seemed a little sweet so I started looking around online and found this society. Ive spent the last few days reading the history, and posts. I have learned a lot in a short period of time.
The only brands sold at the local spirits shop are Lucid and Absente.My wife choose the Absente because it came with the spoon. I plan on getting a bottle of Lucid, since most consider what I have now to be overpriced liqueur. I am looking forward to trying it and many other brands.
I bought my first Glass on Ebay last night, an inexpensive pontarlier. I was also looking at fountains, but after reading the thread on making your own I will be attempting to make one myself instead.
Hope everyone is having a great day.
