That negative response to the review came from me. I'm a diptard and thought it meant that there were both types of comments.

For those that might be interested, I've added my review.

Be gentle, it's the first pre-ban review I've written. :blush:

(a pictorial presentation will follow once I weed through the hundreds of shots I took)

For a second there, I swaggered and said to myself, "Why I oughta...", and then I read the second line.

Thanks, Shabba! :cheers:

I see nothing to be gentle about. It is a very well written review.
Of course, I hate you since you got to drink it and I didn't.

I won't let my even greater hatred of you dissuade me from saying that it was a splendidly evocative review, even. :thumbup:

Very well written review :cheers:

From what I've read, you should now jump on an Edouard Pernod sample, I'm pretty sure it will fit your tastes perfectly, it has the same 'masculinity' (that's how I always describe E.P. compared to P.F. by the way).

Cheers, guys. I'm enjoying writing these reviews. I have a moleskine book that I've labelled "Adventures In Alcohol" where I keep all my tasting notes and cocktail experiments. I've discovered that after many years of typing on computers, my handwriting is utter crap!

MThuilli, I probably prefer the 'girly' absinthes, but only just. That's what's so great about absinthe, all the variety.

Pre-ban On The Rocks! Blasphemy!
On the second glass, the water had become too warm for my liking so I did the unthinkable and added a couple of rocks. It's my pre-ban and I can drink it the way I like! :)

Hope you enjoyed this latest presentation which was brought to you by some guy called Raymond and another guy called Mthuilli.

Awesome as always, Danny! Where can I order some? Oh yeah, this is pre-ban, and you fuckers drank it all!!! :devil: :devil: :cheers:
The basic tools of the absintheur are essentially a spoon, glass, sugar cube, chilled water, and absinthe. None of the other objects are actually necessary to prepare the drink, but they are imperative for instigating a type of visual hypnosis and bringing richness to the ceremony.

Lately, I've had the pleasure of the following:

PF 1910

Edouard Pernod (Lunel) 1880

PF 1914

And PF 1914 "green" is in transit somwhere in the postal system (crossing my fingers)...

I am sitting on a couple samples of 1880 Edouard Pernod myself. Two questions for you, Rimbaud, or anyone, I guess. Do you add sugar to pre-ban? I know it's a personal pref. But I am curious. Second, I have a bottle of PF that has been in transit through USPS for some time. Hopefully it gets here. A little nervous...but anywho....I am trying to find a spinal stent hypodermic to sample from the bottle, but I am finding it impossible to find. I have been searching the ER for an alternative, but no luck. Any ideas?


Cheers

If you normally use sugar with modern absinthe, use sugar with pre-ban absinthe. I'd go easy, though. You don't want to over-sugar & ruin a perfectly good and rare glass of pre-ban.
