No need to justify yourself Ted, I was just pointing out a funny observation.

Yes Wolfgang, a 'Sebor for Jade' does seem a bit lopsided! Awhile back however, Marc was one of several forumites who were kind enough to provide me with samples of certain commercial products for my analytical activities, which saved me a bit of money and hassle. In Marc's case, I was delinquent in returning the favor. Regardless, Marc's gesture is consistent with his character, and he has always been an esteemed member of the forum.

No, Wolfie, it was not a Sebor vs Jade deal.

Please believe what Marc says:

"yes, I gave Ted some Sebor's, but that's not the only reason he sent me the Jade. He likes me. Right Ted? "

Long ago Marc provided me with a sample of Sebor, and I've been indebted to him for some time on that account.

I arranged for Marc to receive one of the 'test pressings' of an upcoming Jade product. The final version is somewhat similar, with the same recognizable textures. It is basically a variation of an old New Orleans label. Some of you sampled something very similar at the New Orleans shindig last year.

Cool. I had the Nouvelle Orleans and Edouard Pernod. Bliss! Especially the EP.

Cheers!

Marc,
I tried my samples w/out sugar until almost the end. Then I decided "Why not?"
Man, oh man!
Do me a favor, give it a try once w/the suge.

no sugar. it doesn't need it. I like an adult absinthe.

(It's almost like being there ... almost.)

Have you added any sugar to it, Marc?

Lucky bastard!
It's been almost 13 months exactly since I savored the flavor of Breaux's Brews the 1st time. (sigh)
Remember way back when Rabid, my pal?

I'm enjoying my first glass of Jade. A few first impressions:

complex, herbal, a pleasant bitterness at the back of the throat, no cloying oily star anise taste, well-balanced, delicate

I think I'm in love.

more to follow....
