Thanks!! I think that I will go out on a limb and let you know how it turns out......

The best thing to do, Scream, is to try as many as you can..We all have divergent opinions. My $.02, though..if you're ordering from SC.. Deva50, NS70, Segarra, Serpis.

I guess it harks back to the Daze of Yore when absinthe was considered a stomach-ailment cure. But..I've noticed when I have a glass of La Fee, Deva or La Bleue, I can get away with eating heavier food later, and not regret it as I might absinthefrei.

Or, it's just a good excuse.

Maybe I should not get the serpis - maybe the deva - I don't know - I trust your opinions!!! You are obviously more experienced than me.....

G-ray,
Me neither. Gives me a shot of heartburn, though.

I don't have a sufficiently discerning absinthe palate to identify what the hell that taste IS in that beetlejuice, Serpis, but it makes me gag.

Everything has a price point. If ordering from SC, and you have the scratch, get 2 or 4 bottles. You'll regret getting just one.

But, not to add a negative pall to this thread, on the other side of the Spanish spectrum.. NS70, Deva50, and Segarra...all quite satisfying.

I get it, like it, then about 1/2 way through the bottle, I don't think I'll ever get it again. Then after a couple months it's-damn! I'd like some Serpis!
And off the cycle goes again.

Yeah, I think I'll go with the serpis. Call me a cheap bastard, but others I have seen like "Betty" are way too expensive for me - and I live in the US.......

Gots ta try Serpis! If only because you'll read how much people love or hate it. And the glasses are nice lil' fuckers. They are the ones I take camping. It's absinthe only in the woods.

Hiya Crowly,

Myself, I never order less than 4 from SC. Just seems a waste to get less. I'd be firin' up the reup as soon as I got shipment. Biggest was 8 bottles. That was a satisfying 5 minutes, unsheathing those snuggly wrapped bottles of fairy squeezin's.

I agree!

I ordered 2 bottles of Deva 50 on my first shot.
Next time I will order 5 bottles. One of each Deva, One of each NS, and and one other bottle. Maybe Serpis.

Greetings Scream+Whimper,

What can you expect from absinthe? How about nothing? Why not just try it and see for yourself?

As for Fairy Fest, it will be a bunch of interesting people getting together to see what (fill in blank w/forum name) is "really" like, whilst getting progressively lit as the night goes on. And I can pretty much gaurantee you'll laugh and laugh. And you will meet people that you will stay in touch with, either through here, e-mail, phone, or in person.

Sorry, I have been out partying, but thanks for the grammatical error - I will not do it again.....

first of all, I would recommend that you spell Absinthe correctly. I know I'm being a condescending dick. OK, if you order from SC, you should get Deva 55%, NS 55%, and Deva 70%. That's just my personal opinion. It's better to order at least 2 bottles too because you'll save on the shipping. I don't know the details of the NYC meeting, but I live there and should probably get my ass in gear and go too...

Hello, i'm new - obviously. I was wondering about the little get together in June. I live near New York. I have never had any absenthe in my life and I must say that I am intrigued by it. What can I expect? Please do not be too harsh on me. I'm thinking about ordering some from spirirts corner. Any recommendations? Thank you for you time...
