Hi everyone. I'm excited to be a part of this community. I'm a 27 year old male who lives in the DC / Maryland area. I've only had absinthe once in a gimmicky absinthe bar in Barcelona, and, as Hiram told me, it was probably one of the cheap undistilled varieties (I don't know the variety, but the bottle said it was made in Barcelona).
I'm trying to put together my first order of Absinthe, hopefully splitting the shipping cost with a few friends. I'm thinking of getting some François Guy, as it seems to be the most cost effective for the quality.
Anyway, I'm glad this group exists. It's great to have someplace to talk about absinthe and La Belle Epoch.
