I bought my first bottle of absinthe for my 21st birthday recently. It was "absente" brand and from what I've discovered there are some issues with that brand ( not the correct artemisia plant? Colorings?) . Regardless I'll say it wasn't too bad but it's one of the only absinths I've had so I can't really compare it to anything.
recently I also got a bottle of lucid . I prefer it over absente. Other than those two there is not much absinthe at the liquids stores in this "college town" although when I travel back home I might try to see if the stores there have any absinthe brands.
Im not not sure why, but I've always wanted to try absinthe . I suppose I like the herbal taste. Before that I usually stuck to johnnie walker and "rectified sprits". I don't see myself buying anything other than absinthe now though. ( which is a bit difficult for a college student with a part time minimum wage job. I sometimes skip meals and bills.)
im mainly trying to find a good quality absinthe for a reasonable price, but I'm not sure what to try next. I imagine I'll have to find something online ( I've come across Catskills cellars, at least I think that's the name, but I don't know which is the best choice)
