I received the bottle I ordered from Jim just a few minutes ago.


Talk about lightning fast shipping...literally! :laugh:

You got a problem with that?

Considering the shipping and the timing, it was a great rate.


And the box is perfect size for recycling...

Nice! I think I'll have a glass with lunch too.

Ok, Show of hands from people in OKC that got booze from Jim. *devil grin*
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.

I am just so glad that these bottles and samples are going to the good people here at WS. What a bunch! :cheers:

And likewise sad that you had to part with them, no doubt!

The glasses arrived and they are very nice. The things are rustic, meaning a few bubbles and stuff. Neat!

The packing was amazing. I asked Jim if he had stock in the bubble wrap company. He used a lot.

I'm well pleased with my purchase and glad to read that the rest of you are as well.

I'm proud of the members that helped out a man in need and I'm sure he appreciates it also.

To you all, :cheers:

I noticed another little thing I thought was very professional and decent of Jim. The check I wrote wasn't deposited until yesterday, presumably after I sent Jim a pm letting him know I got the goods in good condition. Thanks again. :cheers: And your son has my best wishes.

I got my box from Jim today. Thanks.

If you don't like anise at all, you're not likely to care for any decent absinthe, as absinthe is an anise flavored drink. It's kind of like asking if there are any good beers that don't taste like hops or malt.----Hiram

Got my shipment from Jim today. Played a bit of a prank on him. :devil:

Crikey, they way it was packed, I felt like Geraldo trying to get into Capone's vault. But I found a lot better stuff. :)
