I have been into absinthe for years... Unfortunately, my tasting resume is rather small, being in Canada and all...

I was watching a youtube vid, and saw mention of this place... well, how could I resist?

I have made my own absinthe, and it turned out very nicely... it was nowhere near the quality of the Jade PF1901 I managed to score a couple years ago.

I have since found a way to get quality absinthe in my hands, and am rather excited, seeing as how i cant import it into Canada. I have tried Taboo, and while good, it was nowhere near the quality of the Jade I tried.

I am sure that like many of you canadians, I started out on Hills.. yes I know, its not really absinthe. But I was still excited when i bought it. Until I found out that it was not even close to absinthe. Well, that lit a fire under me, and I have been on a rather active quest to find some of this delicious libation.

So, Hello to all of you, I look forward to what Im going to learn hanging out here.

Cheers! :cheers:

Good to meet ya!

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'.

I once bought a bottle of Hill's in Parry Sound, Ontario, some time ago before I knew better...

Thanks for the greetings guys!

I am very excited to get some abinthe, I actually will be ordering a bottle of Clandestine la Bleu from a place in the Maritimes. Im really excited about it, I have never tried a blanche. So I am looking forward to seeing how the blanche louches. I havent had absinthe since my Taboo ran out.. which was around Christmas. so I am rather excited to finally be getting another bottle.

Sante!
