Another Upstate New Yorker

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! I've been lurking this website for a few months now and finally decided to join. I should thank all of you for your reviews, since they led me to purchase a bottle of Delaware Phoenix Meadow of Love, which has proved to be excellent. It will be difficult to resist Walton Waters being my next purchase.

 

Otherwise, I'm relatively new to absinthe. I bought my first bottle of Lucid a few years ago (illegally, actually, since I was underage at the time ;) ). Since then, my experience has been only occasionally, in the few bars that happen to stock absinthe. I've been able to try Vieux Pontarlier, Mansinthe, and Absinthe Ordinaire (well.."made from traditional absinthe herbs" in the case of the last one). More recently I've been a little more seriously interested in it, as well as other liquors. I'm hoping that sometime in the nearish future I will have the opportunity to try pre-ban absinthe, but as a student, I'll probably have to stick to a sample size prices for a while.

 

Nice meeting all of you :biggrin:

Welcome, ya lucky absintheur!! :cheers: You can actually drive to a decent store to buy plenty of good booze. Besides having DP there, it seems a lot of stores carry plenty of the good stuff.

Delaware Phoenix is actually located about 40 mins away. Definitely doable

Lucky is right! I highly recommend making Walton Waters your next buy, it's definitely one of my favorites.

Welcome to the party, from about as far west in NYS as you can get!

Catskill Cellars is where you can actually buy it. At DP all you can get is a nice visit, but some sort of law prevents her from selling at the distillery. Catskills Cellars carry a lot of absinthes and other anise flavored spirits. Not one of them is bad, actually they are all pretty good.

They are also in the WS approved vendors list.

I know of a very knowledgeable absinthe enthusiast just a little further south, should you find your way SUNY-Bingo. :cheers:
