  1. Absolutely.


    If you're really keen on not letting too much air or light come in touch with it long term, but you plan on drinking it all, you could decant it into 25ml sample bottles and fill them all up. You will then have dark bottles with little air, and store them as you would the full bottle.


    I cannot see that that would affect the absinthe in any bad way and it would make it real easy every time you want to have a glass..

  2. Ok, so I didn't bother reading all three pages...

    Am I the only one wondering why a person wouldn't spell the same word the same way twice in a scentence?


    Is it "suger" or "sugar"?


    To me it almost made sense though, if only he would switch it all around.

    How? You ask.

    Well, "suger" in Swedish is "sucks". So... Lighting sugar on fire for absinthe does suck. That makes sense. But he got it backwards. That doesn't make sense unless it was an honest mistake. Then maybe it would make sense if he didn't order Czech, which doesn't make sense.


    Do I make sense? No.


    But that's ok.

  3. If you look through old price lists and actalogues from distilleries they often use the Superieur / Ordinaire range for their various absinthes. This is closely related to alcohol level (and to certain extent ingredients). The finest absinthes had the best ingredients and the highest proof.


    As you've said earlier here, the "manuals" often list recipes for each "grade" where it's obvious that the method and list of ingredients (and ratios of ingredients) along with final alcohol level make out the quality rating.

  4. But bear in mind also that Alandia has commissioned Deep Forrest ( Eichelberger recipe designer and WS member) to help create their own attempt at a high-quality distilled product, Maison Alandia, which nobody is willing to try because it's from Alandia.


    Let's just say that the Eichelberger Limitee is better.

  5. I'll see what I can do! If I book a flight with a stop in Seattle, will you come meet me there for a drink at the airport? :)

    Oh and... Your mailbox will be sweetened within a couple of days I believe...




    Through babelfish's somewhat translation of that Denoix page... am I to understand there's no thujone in this stuff either?


    With the help of has research laboratory, it has been possible to develop has totally natural method for eliminating the offending thujone and, with this out of the way, it has been possible to awaken this "Sleeping Beauty"


    There might be - BUT WHO CARES?!

  6. 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...
