  1. Welcome Shangfu! And don't worry about your English; I'm an English teacher, and I can tell you that you have better grammar and sentence structure than the vast majority of my students, most of whom could never even understand Lovecraft, let alone learn English by reading him...
  2. Watched the original 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' (1984) tonight and raised a glass of Leopold Bros. Verte to the great Wes Craven. Thanks for the nightmares... RIP.
  3. My preferred ratio for Jade PF1901 is anywhere from 4.5 to 4.75:1 with sugar (1 cube), but as you say, it all comes down to personal taste.
  4. Welcome Martinlest! The Jade PF1901 is amazing.
  5. Welcome TOLou! I agree with the others; don't shell out for a fountain at this point. Just pour the water slowly from a glass measuring cup or similar device. Enjoy!
  6. The link in the first post doesn't seem to be working again. Here's a direct link: http://www.wormwoodsociety.org/index.php/component/content/article/102-news-and-information/items/405-absinthe-cost-comparisons
  7. Here's my stash as it stands today. I hope to add more soon!
  8. Tonight it's gonna be Walton Waters and David Mamet's 'The Spanish Prisoner' (1998).
  9. Welcome Joe! From the reviews it appears that Vieux Carre is an anise bomb: http://wormwoodsociety.org/index.php/component/content/article/20-all-product-reviews/traditional-absinthe/489-vieux-carre-absinthe
  10. Welcome Schism! I'd recommend reading the following articles: 'Serving Absinthe': http://wormwoodsociety.org/index.php/serving-absinthe-mainmenu-228 'How to Buy and Drink Good Quality Absinthe': http://wormwoodsociety.org/index.php/ws-in-other-media/474--how-to-buy-and-drink-good-quality-absinthe ...and then do the best with what you have. If you don't have an absinthe spoon, you can simply place a fork over the glass if you're planning to use sugar. However, the reviews you linked to state that the absinthe you have chosen has a "candy-like" flavor (not typical of absinthe), so you may do well to avoid using additional sugar. Best of luck!
  11. Welcome chocochaos! I enjoyed reading about your journey so far. I don't know whether you'll be able to find it, but I'd highly recommend Vilya Verte; it is amazing. If you can't find Vilya Verte, I'm quite sure you'll be able to get your hands on a bottle of Jade PF1901, which I also highly recommend. Looking forward to reading about whatever you try next!
  12. Tonight I'll be watching 'The Wicker Man' (1973) and raising a glass of Walton Waters in honor of the great Christopher Lee (R.I.P.).
  13. FYI: La Clandestine also comes in a 200ml bottle if you don't want to commit to the 750ml bottle.
  14. Another option for the blanche is of course Vilya (Ridge) Blanche, a bottle of which I just picked up at my local BevMo for $49 - a steal for such a quality offering.
  15. Welcome Randy! Wow - that's quite a start! For the blanche, I'd recommend picking up a bottle of La Clandestine; it'll be the easiest to obtain and is quite good. Instead of sticking with a static ratio for each brand, I'd recommend using the Absinthe Dilution Matrix on this site (http://wormwoodsociety.org/index.php/216-knowledge-library/general-articles-and-editorials/601-absinthe-dilution-matrix), using the same ratio for each respective proof. Let us know how it goes!
