I've been interested in and reading about Absinthe for a few years but the unfavorable exchange rates and high cost had kept me from jumping in until now. I live in PA so shipping alcohol is a problem too, so just recently due to the unbanning one upper-scale PA Wine and Spirits shops actually had a decent selection. I picked up a bottle of Vieux Carre due the fairly universal praise and, from what I can tell, decently high standards and attention to detail. I have been smitten! Absolutely loved it!
Aside from Absinthe I'm actually very into tea and have been for over 15 years, I work with growers and vendors from China, Japan, and India to source and enjoy some of the best hand picked and processed teas in the world. I also enjoy art and create and collect everything from fine art to urban vinyl art toys.
I have a lot to learn and explore and look forward to it!
