Hey all, thought I would finally register and stop just lurking here. I'm from Minneapolis and have been drinking absinthe for 5 or so years now. I'm working my way through the US absinthes and hopefully can start buying from overseas someday. Shipping those darn bottles is awfully expensive!

I love all the reviews on here, they're what I've been using to purchase brands since I started with a gifted bottle of Lucid :)

Welcome. A few overseas shippers will waive the shipping alltogether if you buy enough. Absinthes.com comes to mind as I've used them a few times now and haven't paid a cent for shipping  :laugh:

Haha yeah I look and drool at absinthes.com a lot. It's tough for me to spend 250 a pop though!

Thanks for the welcome!

Welcome!

If you don't like anise at all, you're not likely to care for any decent absinthe, as absinthe is an anise flavored drink. It's kind of like asking if there are any good beers that don't taste like hops or malt.----Hiram

Thanks! Astor Wines has a deal for free shipping on your first order over 100, I think I'll have to give that a try.
