In much despair i noticed DUNY no longer has La Charlotte on their site. Did they stop carrying it? T

Damn, I must have got one of the last bottles then, I got mine on the 21st. Guess I might have to take it easy on it.

I've seen several other brands which were initially carried by DUNY disappear over the past 12 to 18 months, so I wouldn't be surprised at this.

To each their own, but I can't feign sorrow in the least that La Charlotte is gone from their site. That was hands down the worst (real) absinthe I've ever tasted.

It is an acquired taste indeed. I didn't fancy it far as much at first as I do now. Its a great value absinthe in my opinion and it will be missed at that price.

With the amount of good absinthe out there, I see no need to continue re-visiting stuff that's not in the same league, hoping to acquire a taste for it. But that's just me. If there's anything I've learned here, it's that there are some very different tastes among our membership. There's certainly no accounting for Baubel's taste for St. George!

LeRoy distracted me from completely explaining all that.

My excuse explanation for liking St. George is that it is absinthe balls out. Or more commonly absinthe with balls on it's head. It's still absinthe, but it's just so weird you can't help but concentrate on the oddity of it.

I love weird. I don't love St. George. It doesn't really taste like absinthe to me, but it also doesn't taste like anything else that's good.

I am partial to its bitterness, even when i first tried it i liked it which is why i have revisited it often, its just gotten better to me over time. I think i like it so much because its so different than others and I love variety.

At first I seriously considered it (louched 1:1) as a salad dressing additive, but even that didn't quite work. :twitchsmile:

Yes, I'm Krinkles the Clown on an absinthe a beer bender.

You got a problem with that?

I've never really considered it bitter at all. Some interesting herbal characteristics from the nettles, but nothing bitter.

I just can't take it's whole milk thickness.

I think m.a. was talking about La Charlotte (since I accidentally brought up a conversation on St. George). I could be wrong though.

As for your thoughts on St. George, the muddy brown milkshake thickness is also one of the things I don't necessarily care for.

Going back and looking at it, I believe you are correct.

Nothing to see here. :pirate:

I'm with Tatan. It's an absinthe that really gets its freak on! :cheerz:

That was in my review...after louched, "olive oil with milk."

I like St. George, but not as an absinthe. I haven't tried the La Charlotte...it doesn't appear to be one I'm going to try to hunt down either.

I have some you are welcome to. :)
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.
