Hello. I was introduced to the art of absinthe by a friend in the local steampunk group. He set up a fountain and told us the grand story of absinthe, the myths, the history, and tales of sharing it with friends.
My first impression of absinthe was that it tasted like sambuka without being overpoweringly licorice like. The brand I was introduced to was Taboo.

I later picked up a bottle of Taboo at the wine store near work. They had another brand of absinthe available. Luckily they also had a sample bottle of the second brand. That was my introduction to Czech absinth. I'm glad I didn't get the big bottle of that vile stuff.
I'm now keeping an eye out for more traditional brands, and I have ordered some spoons of the internet
