A Swedish Neophyte

Recommended Posts

Hi! I'm Johan, and I live in Laxbäcken; a calm little village in Northern Sweden. I've been lurking these forums for a while, but have now decided to join the community. I haven't tried absinthe yet (not even Czechsinthe), but I'm of course planning to. However, the (real) absinthe at Systembolaget is rather expensive; DuPlais Balance costs 707SEK a bottle (about US$97!). I'm therfore tempted to order a bottle from absinthe.de (they're alot cheaper), but as it's rather complicated to import alcohol to Sweden due to state-monopoly, I'd like to know if any of you Swedes here at the forum have done that before. If so: did you run into any problems, and did it turn out to be cheaper than buying from Systembolaget (after paying alcohol tax)?
