  1. Nice bedtime story Brooks. Oh and Shin, a simple search and you would have found this post from our beloved WhyteKnight- WhyteKnight Posted on: Nov 14 2005, 10:00 AM Member Group: Absintheur Posts: 233 Joined: 25-January 05 From: Wyoming Member No.: 105 Yup, that bad. Montania des Alpes is probably one of the worst things I've ever consumed. You can't really say that it tastes bad, because it doesn't really have much of a taste to it. I picked up some thin, insipid hints of anise but then it slapped me in the face with a rather foul and chemical bitterness that just about makes the stuff impossible to swallow. I've had bad tap water with better mouthfeel. Its bad. Bad, bad, bad. The Coulin really surprised me, though. Its not exactly the tastiest thing out there, but it had good mouthfeel and a good amount of anise, and while the bitterness was pronounced, it wasn't overpowering nor was it funky bad like the montania. Plus its pretty cheap, and the taste to price ratio is pretty encouraging. Forum: Absinthe Reviews · Post Preview: #15186 · Replies: 66 · Views: 1,455

  5. Would that be the Deschutes Brewery run by the right wing fish man? Good beer, especially that holiday ale stuff- Welcome!
  6. "Addicted to Absinthe" The research, the ordering, the waiting, the opening of a package that has traveled many miles, the preparation, the louche and finally the undeniable, unique taste of something that is unavailable with any sort of instant gratitude. That's what I am addicted to. I'm back-

  9. Valkommen- That supplier has worked fine for me in the past, just don't buy into their hype. Why would you care what we think if they have been working for you?

  15. Ahh yes the Martooni. Depends how ya like it. Dry with just a whiff of Vermouth or dirty with a splash of olive juice. Personally I like mine Porn Star Dirty. Of course I am only talking Vodka martinis, I just don't dig Gin very much these days. And yes, it really does make a huge difference if they're made well. Good luck Beowulfgang!
