and the sad silent song made the hour twice as long,
as I waited for that sun to go sinkin'.

an absinthe a beer bender.
You got a problem with that?

I quite like his enthusiasm. All of my friends think I'm a little nuts for my enthusiasm for this stuff, so it is good to know I'm not alone out there.
I think it is nice to see someone addressing the public's questions like he did near the end.

Nice summary of most things that's worth knowing about absinthe.
Top five brands so far:
Jade (PF) 1901 - this is a winner but also quite an expensive brand (It can be well diluted though). Top of the range and a top notch absinthe. | Grön Opal - Swedens most excellent premium absinthe. | Vit Opal - a truly excellent blanche from the same distiller as Grön Opal. | Libertine 72 - for the low price and because it can also be diluted really well this has become the one that I buy again and again. | Duplais Balance - very tasty indeed and for quite some time my favourite (before Libertine).

Found this thread-- got around to watching it. Very informative for a novice like me.
TY for posting & glad the link is still functional.

Right? Finding functional links around here is like doing an Easter Egg hunt
Anyone know how many bottles of Lucid to a case? Made me think of this thread, when Ted said (in the video) that in 2008 they shipped 50,000 cases of Lucid. Seems like that's a pretty healthy figure, not sure what it looks like these days, though.

I'd be surprised if Lucid shipments are anywhere near that number today. Now it's more competitive, and in 2008, they were filling the pipeline. Today it would just be replacement business.
Regarding functional links, that's one of the reasons why I have recommended that when linking to a text source, that the poster copy and paste the text, as well as providing a link, just in case the link becomes non-functional.
