Leopold Bros

Recommended Posts

New brand hit the shelves in my are (I know we can all buy online but its so much easier to run down and grab something spur of the moment) Leopold Bros Verte. So far with a 4-5:1 ratio I must admit pretty tasty. :cheers:

I have been lucky to have a few friends pick up a bottle for me from time to time. I can't get it online that I know of. Oklahoma is like the f'n twilight zone when it comes to buying booze.

 

They make some good booze. Such a nice variety and all very tasty.

 

:cheers:

Leopold Bros is the first real absinthe I tried and I love it. In fact, I've loved everything of theirs I've tried. If you're a whiskey fan, I recommend their Small Batch American Whiskey as well as their Rocky Mountain Peach Whiskey. I can't wait for the next batch of Leopold Bros Maryland Whiskey.

 

One of the many reason it's great to live in Colorado.

Good to hear you folks are enjoying them.

 

This year's Maryland Rye will be out in a matter of weeks.

 

Cheers

 

:shock: Cannot wait.

It's good stuff - a little different than more traditional vertes, but tasty. I think it makes an excellent summer afternoon drink.

 

One word of caution - I would recommend not leaving the last quarter of a bottle on a shelf too long; I find that the last quarter will get bitter if it's left to age too long.

Did you all have a nice summer?

Summer? What is summer?

I have a raft that barely got wet. I have a license that matches my flyrod...not used.

 

Mmmmm. Cypress Porn. :twitchsmile:

I have not noticed this. Maybe they just don't last long enough here.

Maybe staying home and just cruising forums should be what I do instead of traveling and sharing my bitterness. ;)

 

But, they put tires on vehicles for a reason. :)

You Bill? Nah...I have just been around too many grumpy-ass old friends lately, who seem to have forgotten how special they are, and how powerful they can be when they put their heart into things a bit.

Nor have I. I still have about 1/3 of a bottle of #14, in addition to half a bottle of #21, and both taste as sweet as the day I opened them.

True dat, my ridge bottle is as good now, as when I got it. I think besides any aging, the added enjoyment comes from a bit of familiarity with the spirit. I know something similar happens sonically with either equipment or recordings, sometimes our senses need to adjust to take in well crafted stuff.

I bought a bottle of batch #39 a month ago. This is my 4th bottle of Leopold Bros and I'm pleased to say that it's just as good if not better than my first bottle, batch #8. Wonderful American made absinthe that I would recommend to anyone. In fact, I suggested it here at one of the few places that serve absinthe and they seemed really interested in trying it out. At least the bartender wrote it down.

I think most of their products benefit with some aging after they've been opened. :cheers:

 

The liqueurs are different than the higher proof spirits, and definitely degrade after opening. I tasted the whole line about three years ago, and then watched the bottles for about 6 months to see how they evolved (with exception of the Three Pins, which I couldn't keep my hands off of!). Even their back labels, if I remember correctly, recommend finishing an opened bottle within 30 days.

Yeah...I can't say that the liqueurs last too long in this house.

 

Still mad I left the maraschino in Montana as a gift...I could be getting my Aviation on!
