  1. I know you've already had a lot of responses but figured I'd toss my tuppence worth in. A preponderance of a point of view is helpful. I agree with splitting bottles if you're on a budget. However, having it shipped from overseas is almost as good as getting it locally if you order from the right places. Rue Verte ships free over 200.00 american and Liqueurs de France ships free over 100 euro. There are so many distillers tripping over each other to make and sell good absinthe that for now at least their competition over price point is in our favour. It's not an even swap since 700 ml is the Euro standard compared to our 750 but if you want a bottle of good absinthe in your hand it's a good deal. Mansinthe was my first and I still like it a great deal. At 60.00 750ml it's a good price. Contrary to some, I like Lucid too. Although I may have to agree with whomever pointed out the hangover effect of beet alcohol compared to grape. Vieux Pontarlier is my favourite so far followed by Jade's Edouard. Anything Jade actually. Vieux Carre' from Penn Distilling is great too at 56.00 a bottle have fun...Tad
  2. Buffalo, NY. From what I understand the footprint HERE is pretty small. Tad

  8. Bill, thanks. I'm a nut for Victorian anything...well...'cept for Victorian morals but still. Absinthe fits the decor perfectly.
  9. Joe, It's possible I just don't like bleues. But I'm keeping an open mind. I'm not Joe, but that's a hell of a nice compliment. I'm not baubel but I'll take that as a fine compliment, too. Odds are good, if you like a verte, you'll like a blanch. The difference between a verte and a blanch is the same as the difference between two vertes. Certainly the coloring process adds another level of flavor to the absinthe but not remarkably so. In the old days of only a year or so ago, most of us sported user names. When absinthe was once again legal in the US, the user name no longer seemed necessary. Some members retained their user name and some did not. Occasionally, I miss "T73" but not much. I wonder whatever happened to "Hiram: The Guy in the white hat?" Clearly I need to pay more attention to which button I'm pushing before I sail off and call someone by name. I used to spend a great deal of time on message boards but perhaps I've lost the innate sense of what it takes to follow threads and keep things straight. I will reacquire this skill I am sure. Tad
  10. I'm not Joe, but that's a hell of a nice compliment. Well, I apologize for the error. I'm unsure why I came to that conclusion but I stand corrected. Tad
  11. I'm a nightowl...anyone else here on insanely late? East Coast time? Tad
  12. Z....I'll put it on my list. Thanks for the hello... Tad
