Greetings!

Recommended Posts

Hello to everyone--

 

I am a newcomer to the Fairy, and am warming-up on Pernod anise and (I know--perish the thought!) Absente. That's right--I haven't tasted the real deal yet, but am understandably intrigued. Being a gainfully-employed bachelor in his 40's with few other resposibilities, I will probably go right for the Jade. : )

 

Thanks for sharing your voluminous information, and well-considered opinions.

The pastis are just fine--and I only really felt the alcohol the first night (had 2).

 

Y'know--the Absente isn't so terrible (and thank you for your kindness, Hiram!), especially compared to a $10-a-bottle Italian Anise I had friday. Not unpleasant, but awfully sweet!

What Wild Bill said. What scares most people off in absinthe tends to be the anise flavour, so if you like the pastis, you have something to look forward to. Welcome.

Welcome!

 

Just remember, we're into "kissing and telling" around here. So let us know which "true" absinthe is your first...
