I'm Christopher, a college student studying communications and fraternity (which is where I got the "squirrel" nickname). I also write for the university paper as the news editor, which is the field I want to go into after graduation.
I'd like to start by saying I'm a Scotch guy. I love Speyside single malts, and Scotch is where I've gotten most of my drinking experience from. While Scotch is what I go to for taste, I drink cheap beer and cheap rum for everything else.
My first run-in with absinthe was Staroplzenecky about two years ago. You know, fake stuff. One of my fraternity brothers had maybe 1/2 an oz. of it and he was moving out, so we both took sips of it neat. I have no idea what it tasted like, so at this point I might as well have never had any absinthe at all. Unfortunately, there aren't that many liquor stores near me (near Atlanta) that have a good selection of absinthe. Lucid is at like all of them, but I'm debating whether I want to get it, knowing that it's middle shelf, or whether I should just get the ABSINTHEXPLORE and pick a few to sample first.
Anyways, I love the website, and I've already learned so much from it! I look forward to starting this new journey with you all!
