Found in Missouri. Too bad it wasn't some old Butterfly absinthe.

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'.

Wow! If only I could find some old bottles of absinthe in the same way. :dribble: I do know that they did sell absinthe here in Honolulu at and around 1903. But then I'm sure it is every wine and spirit drinkers secret dream to make a find like that.

Bill found some old booze once. It still makes him cry to tell the story. Me as well.

Found in Missouri.


Damn!

I was wondering where I left that stuff. :wheelchair:

Yes, I'm Krinkles the Clown on an absinthe a beer bender.

You got a problem with that?

As long as the cap or cork is secure enough not to let in much oxygen, the age of the bottle will not affect the quality or taste of its contents.

No, I'm pretty sure it will.

Bryson said Fite could likely sell the bottles for several hundred dollars apiece.

Wow, that much, huh? ;)
