What ya drinking tonight?

Recommended Posts

Drinking Mansinthe tonight. And, completing the 9th review (last so far)-- covering all 9 of the real absinthes I've had the privilege of drinking.

 

Pretty good way to round out the set.

No absinthe, sadly, as I am traveling on business in Las Vegas, and have not found anywhere serving absinthe yet. I had an Old Fashioned with Bulleit Rye tonight at dinner instead.

Try the Downtown Cocktail Room on Las Vegas Boulevard.

Abs, it is time to have you over for perogies, followed by an absinthe bender.

 

Pierogies are awesome.

 

Weihenstephaner Dunkel Weizen (X2) and then a Guinness at the hotel bar.

Mmmm, Manhattans. For me this evening, a hard lemonade with a generous glug of Cointreau, followed by a Dos Equis. Winnipeg's cheapest pizza is en route.

Ah, you noobs and your penchant for this absinthe, whatever that is. :laugh:

 

 

Elevation Brewing Oil Man.

 

Almost a tad too subtle for a Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout, but like their Montanya, it's delicious.

La Grenouille. There's a funny phenomenon going on in these last day: all absinthes seem now much bitterer than usual. What happened to my tongue?

Although, for most part, the same absinthe will taste very similar to me from one day to the next, it's always amazed me how my palate can occasionally interpret the nuances of an absinthe so differently.

 

Chances are, yours will return to a more balanced interpretation, especially if we're talking about La Grenouille, which has a very fragrant and perfumy wormwood profile. I, too, remember it tasting bitter on balance, a couple of times, but those were just anomalies.

 

 

It's gonna be another hot one today, so 2X4 is definitely on the menu.
