One of my best friends is Portuguese. I asked him at dinner last week if he ever noticed the avaibility of our divine elixir in his native land. He looked a bit alarmed and said that was very off limits and no one sane would mess with the stuff. So I wouldnt put much faith in ready and easy availability in Portugual.

Damn, I was hoping you said yes Torty! I know a foreign exchange student from Argentina. Her father works for the govt down there and I know they are having $$$ troubles because of whats going on down there. Thought maybe I could kick some extra $$ to them by providing...oh well.

Dear Chevalier,
Everything is readily available if one knows who to ask. But in general no, it is not readily available in Buenos Aires, not like in the super market or anything. My source would bring it from Spain.

Estimada Tortainglese, was (is) Deva 70 readily available in Argentina?

Torty indeed! Show some respect for fine pastry here. Anyway, I ordered Deva 70, my sentimental favorite. We used to drink this in Argentina. Good to stick with what you know. I also ordered NS 70, which got some good reviews. When I moved to NYC, I went looking for a source. Talked to some wine distributors, who were offended by my request. I met a Brazilian bootlegger in Brooklyn, but his stuff tasted bad, was BROWN and cost $75 a bottle. A little internet research lead me to you Fine People. I figured if priests can find kiddie porn on the internet, I can find absinthe.

I B:

I just realized that after re-reading the e-mail. Old Way does indeed louch and taste of anise, although rather weakly on both accounts.

Alright, Torty, what are ya getting?

I live in NY, as do you, and the longest I've ever had to wait from SC was 2 weeks, but normal is usually about a week to a week and a half. Christina there is also very helpful if you have any problems (I have never had any problems). on the other hand, got me my LaFee in 2 days! Holy crap!

I just ordered from Spirit's Corner for the first time. Please advise, O Wise Ones, what is the usual delivery time. I live in New York City. Any idea?
Posted on Sunday, April 7, 2002 - 12:21 pm:   Edit PostPrint Post

I think it's something completely different since it isn't anise flavored and doesn't louche.

Got an e-mail today from Spirit's Corner re: a new absinthe, Absinthe Lehmann.

It is 55%, bright green and tastes of wormwood. Could this not be our good friend Old Way, now with a label and a new bottle?

Price is a little cheaper, indicating that -provided it is Old Way- the forumla may have changed as we were told it would.
