    Looks like it’s been a while since anyone has posted in this thread... NASA Liquor on NASA Road 1 and El Camino Real carries Jade 1901, C.F. Berger, Nouvelle Orleans, and Edouard. Total Wine in Baybrook Mall carries Leopold Brothers. Spec’s on Smith Street carries Butterfly. Rosewater on Clear Lake City Blvd. and El Camino Real has an excellent selection of absinthe (including he Jades) and makes wonderful cocktails - it even got a visit and a tasting with Ted Breaux a couple of months back. Captain Foxheart’s Bad News Bar also has a nice selection of the Jade absinthes. That’s all I’m aware of so far...

    Straw Colored Leopold Bros. ?

    I just bought a bottle of batch 99 and it’s a bit more yellowish than I remember, but every bit as delicious!
  3. Apologies if there has already been a post about this, but I wonder if anyone has had any experience with the Slipstream absinthe fountain glass pipe: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00W6Y9R5W?keywords=absinthe%20spoon&qid=1447967581&ref_=sr_1_26&s=kitchen&sr=1-26 It looks intriguing, but I wonder if the absinthe drinking experience is comparable to a traditional glass + spoon + dripper. Thoughts?

    The Absinthe Trail on Buzzfeed

    The absinthe trail is definitely on my bucket list. Maybe as a graduation present to myself...

    Any news regarding a 2015 L'Ancienne batch?

    Butterfly Absinthe

    I'm definitely more of a fan of Butterfly than I was upon my first glass. It's very good, and fairly available in SoCal.

    Show Us Your Stash!

    It's that time of year in L.A. when I can't find Pacifique and start reacquainting myself with old favorites. The L'Ancienne is my third and final bottle from the 2014 batch, and I'm hesitant to open it just yet...

    L'Ancienne available for pre order

    No, I usually have cases I've made; but these came to work so I had to improvise...

    I am very much looking forward to this evening - I've been waiting for this for two years.

    La Grenouille

    I ordered two bottles of La Grenouille in the beginning of October; now I'm regretting not ordering more. Easily one of my three favorite absinthes.

    Maison Priemiere was incredible! I had Blues Cat and Butterfly absinthe for the first time.
