  2. I just can't get myself to buy gear.Another bottle of absinthe always wins out.
  3. It's great stuff,but I'm kinda stuck in the classic era,especially when Coltrane was in his band.Love Dexter Gordon with my absinthe too.
  4. I can usually pass on his Bitch's Brew period though.

  11. I feel the same way,and all the Pernot brands I've had seem to have similar characteristics.
  12. Let us know what you decided on and how you like it.
