I think the problem may be that he is looking for better absinthe and unfortunately cannot find it. I remember a Lounger doing an advanced version of the same thing to make his Logan Fils and Serpis drinkable. Now, whether they both failed or not is up to them and their personal taste.

having sex with a hot Milano... ...DON'T KNOCK IT TIL YA TRY IT!! I promise you won't burn in hell for it-

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


I don't know if I am willing to take your word for wether or not I would burn in hell for having sex with a cookie... By the way, do you use the mint milano or the double chocolate? Pepperidge Farm sex toys, now I've heard everything.

Thanks Shai, I was wondering what a Milano was and why it would be ill-thought-of to have sex with one. I figured it was a woman (or man) from Milan. Shows what I know.

Yeah, crumbs in bed is bad.

having sex with a hot Milano sucks!

That would be having sex with hot A. Milano. No one thinks that would suck. May I just recommend two horrible films that are definitely worth seeing, The Embrace of the Vampire and Poison Ivy II

I don't have an opinion on the thread that follows your intial post but I do have a question: Fine Spirits Corner (Barcelona) just started offering N.S. 70 and I wonder what it's like. I've have a bottle of Seris 65 and Segarra coming (my first tries at Spanish Ab.). FSC's selsction is quite limited but one of the last stands for us Canadians. My question: how is N.S. 70? FSC appears to have stopped ofering Montmarte which is a disapointment as I read positive things about it. [Alex in Victoria BC]

The N.S is, I believe, the exact same absenta as Candela. Those are pretty much the same as the classic "oil-mix"-style absentas (though a few of them really are distilled but artificially colored) It's much along the lines of Deva and Montana etc.

If it's all you can get your hands on, I'd go for Deva instead but hey, it's a little like choosing one bad over another...

I agree with Hartsmar. If you're looking to try fairly drinkable Spanish absinthes, go with the Deva or Lasala. They aren't terrible and they are affordable.

I don't recall FSC offering Montmarte. The best they've had lately is Duplais, which I prefer over the Monte.

I've got some NS70 sitting on my shelf now. It's an oil mix with tons of star anise and a spicier character than other oil mixes I've had. Something makes me think spearmint might be in it, but that could be my imagination. If you like oil mixes and star anise it's pretty decent for its price. However, I don't anymore.

I tried several bottles of the Deva verte way back when I was being suckered in by Betty , she was always pushing it alot,usually ended up costing upwards $150 or more a bottle in those days to have her rip you off,it was barely acceptable tasting, but very strong anise, nothing like the good stuff available nowadays.. :)

Yipes! Deva was one of my first bottles that I actually bought, about 10 years ago. It cost me about $10.

I confess to being fond of Deva 50, the Budweiser of Absinthes. Still have half a case in the cellar.

That's why there's half a case of the Deva 50 that's still in the cellar. Only the primo stuff when I listen to the Fillmore West Box Set though ... :shifty:
