Been lurking for a while and finally decided to signup. My first taste of Absinthe was about 4 years ago in the RLD in Amsterdam. Don't know the brand and the bartender lit it on fire but since that first taste I have found myself trying to learn as much as I can (no more fire!!!) and drink as much as I can. My job has me on the road a lot so I have been able to try many types and have been to a lot of the places suggested here in the forum. Here is my list of what I have tried so far: -Opaline -LA Maison Fontaine -L'enjoleuse -Pacifique -Sirené -St. George -Jade V.S. 1898 -Great lakes Amerique 1912 -Duplais Verte -Kübler Absinthe Supérieure -Vieux Carre Absinthe Superieure -Lucid So far I would have to say Opaline has been my favorite and currently the Amerique is what I am currently drinking.
