Hello, everyone! I've been lurking for a very long time and decided to come out of the ... wormwoodwork? I dunno. :)


I live in Austin, Texas, and have been enjoying absinthe since the late 90s when a friend in Europe acted as my, uhh, ambassador. I've only recently started looking into buying antique/vintage hardware for my hobby, and in fact the information about that subject here on these forums is one of the reasons I'm un-lurking myself.


My favorite brand seems to fluctuate over time, unlike my taste in Scotch. I would have to say, however, that my consistent favorite over time has been the Mansinthe. Take that for what it's worth, but I do enjoy it. My most recent favorite is the Enigma verté, and I'm also fond of Kübler, which is good for me because the liquor store half a block from my house keeps it in stock.


Well, glad to meet you. Have a nice day!

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

Que Pasa!
The room it smelled heavy of drinkin',  
and the sad silent song made the hour twice as long,
as I waited for that sun to go sinkin'.
