I've been a lurker for somewhere around ~10yrs. Was interested in absinthe before the 'unban', probably since the 90s when I saw it in Nine Inch Nail's The Perfect Drug video (was really into nin back then, not now) and looked it up online. Eventually I found this site/forum and the fee verte one, and kind of kept tabs on them over time, and read and learned about what absinthe really is and more importantly, when I decided to finally buy some, what brands to avoid.
This place was a pretty valuable resource, as I never bought one bottle of fake absinthe. Fortunately I can get stuff shipped here, being in Ohio. Probably the least good bottle I ever got was Kübler which really wasn't too bad. I would like to finally contribute some and leave some reviews but currently can't figure out how to get logged into the review section (already sent a msg to gwydion about that so hopefully I get it worked out).
Just got a box with 4 'sinthes shipped from Europe (first time I've got any Euro-only brands), including my first Jade- Terminus. So I'm looking forward to trying to write something that conveys some kind of meaningful idea about the qualities of this booze.
