Just looking to get some vis on the best kit to buy WRT absinthe prep, and forums are always full of info. Haven't had too much of a look around yet, but this doesn't seem to be the grumpy sort of forum where senior members just tell you to read old threads every time you ask a question, so that's always a positive sign.

 

I got in to absinthe almost 10 years ago when I bought a bottle of King of Spirits in Prague, for which I'm sure I paid too much. But I live in Ontario, Canada, and we are largely rather Soviet when it comes to liquor sales, and as such proper Absinthe doesn't really seem to exist here.

 

Regardless, I enjoyed the bottle of King of Spirits, which as I read about it these days seems to be a relatively low-grade Absinthe. So I'm very excited to dig in to a bottle of Jade Nouveau-Orleans I have coming to me via a friend passing through Chicago. Seems like I got the last bottle in the state, according to the manager at Binny's.

 

Anyway, here's hoping peoples pictures start loading for me post-intro thread!

Welcome, Cognaco. :cheers:

King of Spirits isn't even low-grade absinthe; it's not absinthe at all. The Jade, however, is a huge leap in the right direction.

Ya know, if you would take the time to read earlier posts about ...

 

Nah, I can't go on with that. ;) Relax, read, have a glass of absinthe and a good time. Welcome to the Forum.

Well as far as a herbal bitter goes, it fared well alongside other anice digestives like Bosco and cheap ouzo. Having no reference to true Absinthe, I just assumed all Absinthe was another form of anice bitter. I'm very excited for my bottle of Jade!
