  1. Just received a very nice suprise from the monkeys. A bottle of 16 year old Bowmore. Hmmm says distilled 1982, that would be a little older than 16 years? Looks like sampling is in order. :P
  2. Happy B-Day Delta...Looks like we share something in common other then our love of the good stuff.
  3. Brand new bottle of Segarra 45 and UE 45. Have yet to try either...but that is soon to change.
  4. Just tried my first glass of CLB and I now understand all the well received reviews of this goodie. Very nice aroma when I opened the bottle. Dripped slowly over 1 cube with ice cold water and really opened up the aroma! Very nice louche. Mixed 2 to 1 and enjoyed very much. I will most likely be needing to order another bottle soon. Next up...Segarra 45.
  5. Frank 'n Stein is a great little place for lunch. Found it quite by accident and now it is a weekly stop. Now back to the subject thread...I have a half a bottle of Monty sitting on my shelf and am open to maybe making a trade of some sorts. I just don't like this particular flavor. Why a half bottle then? My sis was visiting and loved it but would not take it back to NV with her so now I am "struck" with it.
  6. Sorry about that. Here is the answer link.
  7. Hmmm. Was that a complement or a jibe? Actually acording to this test I am a type B Machiavellian not a master. I am going to try my hardest to advance to master though.
  8. I am with you Bill. Said I would not have another glass till July and now I have had 3. So much for self control.
  9. I will be sure to show her this post!! And start a list!
  10. I have not tried the Jade yet. My better half is in Colo. I am in Wash. so I told her I would wait till July when we get together again...what a softy
  11. $17.00 at wally world. I do believe it is ceramic with a porcelain finish. It is actually a mouthwash dispenser. The spigot is plastic but you can dial it in from a stream to less than 1 drip per second. All in all it serves my purpose just fine.
  12. Good point Brooks. I imagine if they are priced the same I would want a fountain that not only worked well but was pleasing on the eye. When I saw this particular fountain my thought was of this thread more than personal purchase however. Hear is my fountain. Yes it was cheap and no it is not to eye appealing but it sure works well. :P The absinthe being served is Markus's proto #27 which is quite tasty.
  13. Just placed my second order with Markus. That guy rocks! Had a question about a product and shot off an email. Markus replied almost instantly. I am pleasantly surprised with the level of customer service they have over at Lion. So here is my order, in no particular order :P Un Emile 45 Segarra 45 Absinthe Clandestine Versinthe La Blanche (my sister loves this stuff) I have tried the Versinthe and I find it enjoyable, the other three will be a new experience. Come on monkeys!!!
  14. Does anyone out there have an opinion on this fountain? It's on sale over at Lion. Good price.
  15. I stand corrected. By the way good to see someone local on here.
  16. If it is a second edition bottle, it says so on the back label. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Ah yes...right there in front of my beady little eyes
  17. I agree with the "tupentinesh" Feature of this absinthe. I however did not change my mind by glass end. For me this will be a "Hey you guys want to try something?" absinthe. Oh yea, the color of my Monty is blueish. Second edition?
  18. I like to listen to Marilyn Manson while sipping thru my Deep bong Gotcha.. Love Pink Floyd, old Sabbath..um I guess all Sabbath is pretty much old now. Alice Cooper's "I Love The Dead" is a great classic. Louis Armstrong, now there is talent.
  19. Very nice photos elfn.. This thread may have convinced me of my next order. Currently waiting on some Montmartre from FdL...come on monkeys
  20. Now: -lovely colour - same shade as Jade Edouard, only deeper. -nose of A. pontica (!) with a bit of fennel and hyssop, and almost no anise (!). -colouring herbs still very present (and very intrusive). Surprisingly good taste from the colouring herbs, mainly pontica with a bit of hyssop - not grassy at all. -I'm sure there's some melissa because of the colour, but it's not very present at the moment. -The fennel just manages to be noticed, but the anise and the wormwood barely do so (not surprising for the wormwood given the rather pressing presence of the A. pontica). It's very tasty - you'd almost think we'd have to invent another dlounge denomination for people who really like young steeped A. pontica flavours (pontica pimps, if you want an alliteration?). It's also surprisingly smooth for something distilled so recently. It's got something "Eastern European" (i.e. skewed towards the Swiss/German palate) about it, just like the Montmartre (second edition) and the Eichelberger. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Sixela sounds way more qualified to give a fair review of this fine goodie, being a newbie myself. The color, pre louche is very clear and bright. What an emerald would look like if it was liquid. Louche itself was slow coming but very nice in the end. Somewhat creamy looking. Taste is wonderful and pretty well balanced with no one flavor being overpowering. I do not know enough about individual herb flavors to pick out what is what but I can tell you there was just a hint of bitterness on the back of my tounge after finishing my drink. I plan on waiting until July for next taste. Sure is yummy now! Very nice Markus.

  22. Thank you for the advice Markus. I will be sampling this evening, let you all know what the results are.
  23. PETA...I belong to them. That is "People for the Eating of Tasty Animals" by the way
