Hey all. New to the world of absinthe but am very curious to learn more. I like to enjoy a glass while celebrating or making music. My favs are:

 

MANSINTHE

Absinthe Ordinaire

 

That is all....for now!

Welcome!

 

Mansinthe is a decent intro to absinthe. I was pleasantly surprised that a product so heavily endorsed by a celebrity was actually somewhat good.

 

Ordinaire contains sugar which makes it an absinthe liqueur and not absinthe proper.

 

There's quite a bit of information for newcomers both on the main site and the forums. I'd suggest starting here.

Hi and welcome! :cheerz:

I like Mansinthe once in a while. Good stuff, on my regular rotation.

 

- I've never had Ordinaire but believe it is not well regarded.

As an absinthe, no, but I would put it close to an absinthe substitute,due to added sugar.

I'll give it this: out of the Crillon brands (Absente, Grande Absente) the Oridinaire was actually the better. I know that is not saying much.

Buffalo?

 

Gee, that sounds vaguely familiar... :dev-cheers:

 

 

Mansinthe isn't too bad, (but there's a lot better out there), although the name always conjured up, well, never mind. ;)

Hey there, if you're in the Nickel City, you can get your hands on a decent variety of the green stuff (some white and red, too).

I'd suggest checking out the Premier Wine & Spirits stores, or Supermarket Liquors and Wines in the Falls.

Try some Pacifique, Clandestine, or Duplais available. Plenty of other choices, too, some better than others.

I haven't come across too many locally. I believe Caffe Espresso at Main & Transit in Williamsville served a few varieties, don't know if that's still true...

There's a newer bar called Ballyhoo (the old Malamute) downtown near First Niagara Center that is supposed to have an innovative drink menu.

I haven't been there yet to see if they serve absinthe, but hoping...
