I enjoyed reading this, it was written from a cocktail enthusiast's standpoint and also from the POV of someone who actually enjoys absinthe.

No surprise, Marteau was his favorite, but he also has kudos for Kübler and he seemed to zero in on the best reason to buy Mata Hari.

No, it's not an extensive, or exhaustive, list but it's useful.

Also nice to see the Integrity Spirits guys get some positive reviews.

Nice article, Joe. It's always great (and rare) when we can't find much to complain about. I find that very encouraging. Even their treatment of Mata Hari was hard to whine about.

Seconded!
Some folks may cringe each time I use the term "Booze" regarding these high quality drinks.
I mean no offense. There are bottles of extraordinary booze out there. I've tasted a few. Relax.
