It's a pleasure to meet you, I'm sure. How did you become interested in absinthe and what are your favorites?

Welcome to the Forum. :cheers:

Hi! :wave2:
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.

come on in and set a spell

The room it smelled heavy of drinkin',  

and the sad silent song, made the hour twice as long,

as I waited for that sun to go sinkin'.

Well I am as "green" as they come. No pun intended. Having tried absinthe once, and that being from a bottle my son had acquired at a local store here in NY. It was OK but my interest is to try a more original or unrestricted version. So to that end I have on ordered a Philippe Lasala from absinthes.com to compare. Beyond that I am here to learn.

<sigh> I'm not quite sure what the unrestricted version is supposed to be BUT there are Domestic absinthes that are of quality enough to stand up to the european brands. Just my biased opinion. ;)

It's a learning experience, from the first glass until they start throwing dirt in your face. :laugh:

Lasala is one of my guilty pleasures. Unless the recipe has changed, it was an oil mix with (as I recall) an extra shot of star anise. The Spanish absentas are like old girlfriends to me, better by memory than by reality. I would love to share a glass with you but honestly, I doubt it would be very good. There are a wealth of fine absinthes available now and as Bill suggested, the US is producing absinthe that will rival anything from Europe (That said, I have my European favorites, too). :cheers:

Understand, well I will make judgments as I partake. I have a feeling I will be sampling a few more not made for U.S. imports then maybe try the domestic market.
