  1. Congrats on the new house! What better way to celebrate than with some pre-ban. (I'd a' had it popped by now)
  2. I can get these four in order: 1) L'Ancienne, 2) Brut d' Alambic essai #2, 3) Sauvage, 4) Jade Edouard
  3. My list is in no particular order.My mood dictates what my favorite is. 1) Jade Edouard,2) Brut d'Alambic essai #2, 3) VP, 4)Sauvage, 5) Berthe de Joux, 6) Jade NO, 7) L'Ancienne, 8) Marteau, 9) Ridge Verte, 10) Pacifique
  4. I saw a video on youtube of someone holding a thick phone book against a wall for protection.Looked about as safe as it was gonna get.
  5. I meant to say qualified as non-commercial.
  6. Thanks! I kinda figured the "moonshine" variety qualified.
  7. Please excuse my ignorance,but what would be some examples of a non-commercial absinthe?
  8. That's great!!!! How did I get through my life with out knowing these life saving techniques!
  9. It probably doesn't matter,but I wouldn't want to use an old cork from a scotch or bourbon bottle for my absinthe.
  10. I think the dry,crumbly corks are part of their attempt to be as authentic to a 100 year old plus bottle of preban as possible .I mentioned on another thread that I found some really good replacement corks at Bed Bath & Beyond.One six pack contains three T tops & three plain tops,all tapered,they fit great.Real cork,not plastic.After I open a new bottle of Jade,I throw out their cork and use a replacement.
  11. Just re-checked: 1 AUD = 1.018 USD. Don't ya' think those prices are a little stiff?
  12. I googled a USD conversion & it came up almost equal.
  13. Pacifique and Tom Waits - Heart Attack & Vine. "On the Nickel" is playing now. (real tear jerker)
  14. Didn't George Carlin do a bit about this? "wanna buy some shit"? "i dunno,never really thought about it" "here try some" "woah..that is really good shit,gimme a lid" "ya want some papers to do w/that"? "yeah,I'll take a roll or two" (or somethin' like that). Pacifique for me tonight!
  15. I use absinthes.com,Ld'F (both offer free shipping w/a $200 minimum order) & duny.com. I just checked out Absinthe Salon in Australia,holy shit !!! are those prices for real?
  16. Bill,I really hope I can find my way back to that,I used to like it just fine. I think I've really spoiled myself with all this ritzy titsy shit I've been drinking.
  17. remember, that it is cleaning products that kill. Not if you strain them through a loaf of bread first! Woops! There go the dregs from a bottle of Eddy.....(spring cleaning tonight)
  18. A glass of sauvage,then finishing off the end of three bottles: VP,Pacifique,and an Essai #5. Watching that last drop go always makes me a little sad.
  19. Hi Steffano, I ordered some L'Ancienne along with some Peroquette yesterday.I've never tried either but I'm very much looking forward to your well revued product!
