  1. good good find, better than my search. anyway I will pickup a bottle of something while in L.A. and then if nothing at duty free grab a nice bottle of grand marinier, been awhile for that one too. like to swirl in mouth and taste all the spices
  2. Anybody have any info about absinthe in international terminals at LAX? I will be flying though this month and would like to buy there rather than check-in or maybe both on my flight back home.
  3. thats it, the one in Boversse!! I missed it last year by 2 days. May try and make it this year. Thanks!
  4. There is the Absinthaides in Oct in Pontarlier but I am looking for the one that is in Beginning of June? Either France or Switzerland I think?
  5. wow I havent been here since way back in 2007? Anyway I cant remember why I ditched but I have never stopped drinking the green fairy, just not as often. I moved to thailand back in 2010 and you cannot get absinthe here. I have had it shipped with success, my last order was Vollete and François Guy. Anyway thats my short story. Gald to be back now that absinthe has flourished!
  6. Good luck. Montmartre is in France. (Jeez, I can't believe you guys missed that one.) Good to see you back, Jim. Thanks Hiram, it's like I never left. By the way yes Monmartre is in France but Monmartre Absinthe is from Austria.(as if you didn't know that) http://www.absinthe-montmartre.com/ I just figured somewhere in Germany I could find it and others. I'm giddy with anticipation to walk into that store in Hiedelberg! Like a kid in a candy store- :D
  7. That's it, you're the man! Hiedelberg it is! I'll let you know how it was when I get back. Thanks!
  8. I am heading to Germany in March and would love to be able to find one of my favorites, Montmartre- Does anyone know where I can find it? I will be flying into Frankfurt. Thanks!!
  9. WTF?! Besides being curious and wanting to give it a try, I am PISSED! How does the FDA approve this product for sale in the states and we still cannot get Absinthe legalized? It's a wacky wacky world we live in my friends. Here is the site address: http://www.agwabuzz.com/welcome.php
  10. I've now fully lost faith in SC as a place to discover anything new that's worth a crap. They only seem to be interested in foo-foo absinthe instead of trying to bring on board real quality brands. It's like they are trying to appeal to the flavored Vodka crowd or something. It's just sad because they are nice people. Oh well whataya gonna do-
  11. After sitting for about a month and a half I just had the last of my Prototype#23. Man did I enjoy that stuff. I'd take that over ED any day! Anyone else like the #23 or tried the #27 and how was it?
  12. Ditto, but stick around for some creative abuse from your peers, it's fun! :absomphe:
  13. My vote is C. Of course I lick em' afterwards. :P
  14. I like Segarra 45. It just reminds me of a mix of the two-
  15. If there was a piece of cork floating in your Jade would you: A. pick it out with an absinthe spoon B. leave it in C. fish it out with your finger
  16. Had a bit of FG left over and thought "hey, this would go great with the ED" and yes, yes it did. I have said that the new batch of ED is strong on the nose and the FG really mellowed it out. Try it if you can, it's worth it. Now what to mix with the last bit of the Eich??
  17. Has anyone asked the question of did Aussie Absinthe use absinth24.net (andy) or absinthe24.com???
  18. As I posted a couple of weeks ago I was not very impressed with my first sample of Ed. To me it tastes like a mix of La Fee and Segarra.
  19. Hiram- More than I care to count. Let's just say at least 20 Spanish brands alone to make that comparison. Like I said to each his own, so Hiram your right, there is no accounting for taste.
  20. Well let's see where do I start? First the flying monkeys were superman fast this week. I ordered on Monday and received my little gift today Thursday, I love those guys! That is without a doubt the fastest delivery in about four years. Tonight I am trying for the first time the Jade Edouard. Wow was I disappointed! I was so looking forward to a way above par absinthe and that unfortunately is not my impression. Ok it's good but not much better than a good Spanish absinthe. To quote Hiram "more robust herbal quality and a bit of a spicy note, with the wormwood more in evidence." HELLO, what do you think a good number of spanish absinthe taste like? They are 1/2 the price and usually without the overwhelming alcohol hit to the senses. Here is another Hiram quote "In my opinion the best of the Jades so far." If that is the best Jade so far and at those prices I have no desire to try any of the others. Ok let's move on to another, the Verte de Fougerolles 72. All looks good until you taste it. Let me quote Hiram again on this one. " Verte de Fougerolles is a pleasantly different style of absinthe from most on the market" Pleasantly? Maybe if you like something that tastes like sweaty socks! Would I recommend or order either of these again, no. I know to each his own but come on man, is someone getting big discounts on their orders from LDF?. Well so goes the wonderful world of absinthe, you spend your money and you takes your chances. I know I'm gonna get shite for this post but again, to each his own.
  21. Freakin awsome Slakjaw- I am so jealous right now!
  22. I am so with you on that. But then what would I use to clean the built up grease on my engine?
