I'm a short time lurker and an even shorter time absinthe drinker. I first found out about absinthe from a cocktails channel on Youtube. I've been interested since and just a while back I purchased my first bottle of Taboo, but not before doing some research. I found Wormwood Society and read up on all the FAQs as well as some reviews. I'm glad that I did since WS helped me avoid faux absinthe like Absente At the time, I wasn't ready to purchase absinthe online so buying locally was good enough. However, I'm looking to broaden my tastes so in some point in time I plan on purchasing asinthe samples (La Clandestine, Roquette 1797, and Blanchette) via Absinthexplore and maybe a spoon as well.
Looking forward to learning even more about absinthe!
