Greetings all,
Hello from North Carolina. I've been observing the forum for over a year. Thanks for all the advice and reviews. I hd my first absinthe at The Old Absinthe House in NOLA two years ago. It was NO and the bartender lit the cube on fire (rest assured, I don't do that). Later, we heard Ellis Marsalis play at Snug Harbor. What a wonderful introduction to la fee verte. Since then, I've bought the following (I bought heavily during LdF's 40% sale last year):

Eddy
NO
1901
CLB
MOL
Ridge verte
Dublais Balance
Roquette
MOL
L'Italienne
Brevans AO Spare (unopened so far)

My favorite brand depends on weather, my temperament at the moment, and amount of liquid still left in the bottle. MOL and Ridge are my go-to brands to share with friends.

Good to meet you all. Regarding my user name, I'm male but there's a bit of Norma Desmond in every boomer.
Mark

Welcome! Wow I'm sorry I missed that 40% off at LDF. Was before my (absinthe) time.

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.

The A.O. Spare was a nice surprise when I finally got into it. Alas, my bottle is now empty.
