Moonman don`t want to move out from the Moon, he say it would break out the spell.

Some better absinthes will be available soon anyway... (I still hope)

If you keep this up, Wolfgang, it just might evolve from a hobby to a profession. You know how THAT works: move to, say, Nepal or Guyana and set up a distillery ...

I tasted a small glass of #8 yesterday evening just to compare it against those notes...

I agree with Artemis that it's a little thin in the middle. It seams all the original pungent taste moved to the front row smell and to the backward aftertaste leaving a hole in the middle.

But what a smell and what a long spicy aftertaste ! Some more research must be done, there's always some more space for improvement.

Moonman told me he will brew a #10 accordingly to the reviews he'll get and mix it 50-50 with #8 to make a special improved NewYork version.

Which leads to wonder what happened to the mysterious #9 ... the missing link !

(I think it was supposed to serve the same purpose but after some tests, the Maître de la Lune took the decision not to mix it but to pour it down the thursty throats of some black clad lunar demons).

My girlfriend and her sisters used to catch small lizards, pour sand down their throats until they died, then give them Catholic funerals -- complete with mourners, pallbearers, a priest and a gravedigger. This made my girlfriend inexplicably at peace with herself.

Aren't children monstrous?

"Is creeping nightshade the same thing as Belladonna or Deadly Nightshade?"

Actually, I have Climbing Nightshade, Solanum dulcamara. Also called Bittersweet.

"And foxgloves..."

Digitalis. Stops the heart.

"Anyway...shall we call him Artemis the witch?"

In olden days, many a person who healed with herbs was burned for a witch. Of course, if you learn enough about herbs to know which ones can heal, you also know the ones that invoke rigor mortis. Step up newbies, for a glass of Morte Subite.

Not to forget the hemlock.

I´ve been called "GIFTMISCHER"
(= a person creating poisons)
several times lately.

Witch ... , I think Artemis would not be
happy to be called so. Druid maybe?

Tansy is really one of the most aromatic
herbs I know. Must try an omelette spiced with
tansy (a traditional recipie) if it is available
fresh again.

Moonman's #5 and #7 contain some tansy in the maceration phase. No concern there.

Is creeping nightshade the same thing as Belladonna or Deadly Nightshade ?

And foxgloves...

Anyway...shall we call him Artemis the witch ?

Who's the next newbie to ask for a sample ? ;-)

Not to worry, Aion - those are only for our "special" friends.

"Better have any samples I send to you tested for digitalis. And I didn't even show you my Creeping Nightshade"

Dead birds, or cussing, kitties, and flowers threads?

As a child down on the Bayou, I used to conduct mosquito hawk funerals. Dragon flies, to you non Louisianans.

"Are you shure that the first picture shows Angelica?"

It's not Angelica. I wrote those descriptions ex tempore in the five minutes or so I had between Kallisti posting them and me having to abandon Internet access for the day. No better way to make errors than to get into a hurry!

"Ian, you are the person with the green thumb"

Who do you think grew the plants in those pictures, Santa Claus? Better have any samples I send to you tested for digitalis. And I didn't even show you my Creeping Nightshade.

"is that Hyssop on Artemis´ first picture."

It is not. Hyssop has deep blue or purple flowers (although I've heard of pink varieties) and I've never grown any hyssop. I do grow Korean Mint (Agastache Rugosa), which I planted thinking it was Hyssop (the flowers look like a cross between Hyssop and what's actually in that picture). The first picture is in fact of a variety of Veronica (Speedwell), Veronica Spicata I think.

Artemis's picture, an oxymoron surely Aion :-) and yes 'green thumb' is an acceptable phrase in English

My hyssop hasn't flowered yet and still looks a bit like rosemary, so the first picture may well be. (With all the summer rain we have had here, the A pontica is almost as big as the A absinthium in my garden)

Hehe, nice hemlock absinthe ....

Ian, you are the person with the green thumb
(I hope this term means in English the same
as in German), is that Hyssop on Artemis´
first picture.

And here is another plant that
one should consider for
"commissioning a special batch of absinthe
for a few of our special forum friends"

NO ANGELICA!!!

Ah Ha...Flopsie!

This is like my 70's shag carpet with legs. She doesn't have any white underneath, though. Mostly dark brown, black, and orange. Poor little Sammy, she's funny look'n, but sure loves daddy. (And nobody else for that matter)

Except for the floral part, and the louched part, it COULD describe the Nasty Sebor Strong . . .

Not to be confused with the real Sebor, which is a different distillery who is being ripped off by the Sebor Strong people.

Ahhhhhhhhhh-eeeeeeeeeeeeee !!

Angelica, not far out of the ground but already purty.

Canterbury Bells.

T.S. Maudite, giving outside cats the evil eye.

Dweezil, a wandercat who likes to attend me in my yard.

Flopsie, ditto, giving the don't mess with me stare to Dweezil in the upper right corner.

Foxglove - Head P. and I are commissioning a special batch of absinthe with that for a few of our special forum friends.

Elixir de la Lune #8 - I took this photo with the glass at about waist level. I was holding the camera down at that level also. The scent from the green liquid was heavy in my face even at that distance. Very fine!

Lune #8 louched. Tasted a little thin, not as creamy as I would like, but no faults whatsoever and that scent! Oh man. I had a generous sample, too. Thank you Mr. Lunar man.

Lastly, Sweet William. Heavenly scent as well.

I took all the photos in my yard on Sunday as I was enjoying the Lunar elixir in the twilight.
