I'm very particular as to who I go skinny dipping with.

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.

When tripping on ballz becomes more of a risk in the shower than at a rave.

I got my 2 bottles yesterday and am on my 2nd night of sampling it. I had 1 bottle of the 1st run and it was excellent. This run is, in a word, superb. It has a predominate wormwood flavor, but is well balanaced with the other herbal bill. It my not be for veryone, but I'm scraping up the funds to get another bottle os 2 before it's gone. I highly reccomend this one! :yahoo:

I'll just have to take your word that it is not for me. Makes not being able to procure funds for a bottle easier to swallow.

I've had a couple glasses of Sauvage's 2nd run. It is delicious. The addition of the grape base
creates a roundness and softness, playing nicely with this wormwood's personality. I in fact, prefer this over the first version.

Yeah, if they'd only keep the bottles corked, and quit taking those little nips, you might actually get that package, already. :devil:

So my bottles of the new batch of Sauvage arrived today. On one of my bottles, the wax seal was broken, whereas the other seal is completely intact. Is this a cause for concern?

Nope. Unless you were thinking of aging them both for a long time. Otherwise it's made up your mind about which bottle to open first. :cheers:

If you like it, you might try Ridge Verte. It also has a nice Aa profile.
Booze made with Kirk's herbs also is good.

What I want, is for the Sauvage to be here. :) . It truly is remarkable booze, and one of the best ways to introduce noobs to the green fairy.


I am a definite noob. I'd only tried 3 absinthes before my recent order of Sauvage. I totally agree with it being a good introduction for noobies. Because after tasting it's beautiful wormwood flavor, I Now know how to better 'savor' the flavor of other absinthes I've sampled along with this order. I'ts like this stuff got me hooked.

forget and allow.

The Berthe de Joux has a nice minty Pontarlier wormwood profile to it too, if that's your thing. :wave2:

"With. Without. And who'll deny it's what the fighting's all about."

Man, Pink Floyd wrote some great song about the dilemmas of sugaring absinthe. Geniuses looking far into the future.

Personally, however, I never sugar the 'sinthe. Too many 'S's' to consider. Slurred speech then becomes a common result. Then people call you a drunk; then you get into a fight; then you get kicked out of your apartment; your girlfriend break up with you; and you end up living plugged up in a gutter somewhere, washing car windows with water and old newspapers. In my experience, sugaring never ends with positive results.
