i dont really care about the amount of Thujone i just like the taste. the first brand i tried was Sebor, but soon after I heard that there are many better brands out there and then i stubled upon the la fee verte webpage and the then soon got very confused as to which brand i should go for. i looked at the absinth rankings and got a little bit more of clearer view of what i should get and then decided (after reading the FAQ) that i would get some personal opinions from some conisures.

-"If you want quality"

You left out the begining...

Perhaps I should add another sentence.

If you want red, the only answer is Serpis.

See what happens when you discuss Thujone...

NOTHING

Just like when you drink it...

Analysis? Done by whom?
Can't remember the name of tha lab.

What is considered "high"
more than 35mg

Does it even matter... certainly not to me.
not to me as well.

Have to go now - bye

Sorry. I misunderstood you. I thought the makers of F.Guy were now promoting their absinthe as a high thujone product.

oh, they don't tell a word about thujone, because they surely know that it is not the most important fact about Absinthe. I can't tell you anything about the french law situation. It's not really transparent to me. Sorry.

Question:
I thought the genetically altered wormwood was to get around the laws for thujone content?

Are they now claiming it's altered to "boost" the thujone even higher than regular absinthe?

Can you post some of their propaganda... or a link?

I was totally surprised, when I saw the analysis, but this doesn't change anything for me personally. It was and it is one of my all time faves. Maybe this changes something for newbies, to whom thujone seems important...

F.Guy? With the "genetically altered wormwood" is touted as High Thujone?

Jesus H! Can't they just let us enjoy absinthe for it's taste?

Thujone...PHOEEY!

The question is, -"Do you start at the bottom and work your way to the top? Or start with the best"?

There are a lot more POOR absinthe's out there, than good ones. There are even fewer great absinthes...

If you want quality stay very far away from oil mixes (Deva, Serpis, NS, Oxy, Mata Hari... the list is huge).

The distilled absinthes taste better (usually) and are a better product (ANYTHING from LDF, the 45% Emiles, Kubler, Segarra, F.Guy).

BTW- There are no bottles of "absinth" at SC (german). Just Absinthe and Absenta. I'm sure Markus can sell you all the high Thujone Absinth you need.

There are so many different sorts. You just have to go all the way :-)) No, serious: There are some sorts you can forget, other you shouldn't miss e.g. Un Emile, Francoise Guy, Abisinthe, Kübler, Segarra.....

Can we get it in the FREAKIN' FAQ already, Geezz!!!!

Touchmonkey,

This is from an earlier educatin' I posted
just a week or so ago.



quote:

Yeah, that's one brave concoction.
It's a little convoluted though.

I think I have to educate you Geo,
on the finer points of Serpis
and how it differs from Slerpis...

Serpis: (That's S-e-r-p-i-s) is the booze.

Slurpee: Is the mixer. (Most red slushies
will do outside of a 7-Eleven store)

Slerpis: Is the final product

In fact go ahead and read the whole site.
It's fun and informative for the whole family.

Well, you could say Deva is pretty good for the price. You could also say that the shipping cost per bottle is more justified by better absinthes.

Their shipping rates have gone up and the way they're calculated is different now. It used to be that getting 4 or more bottles gave you a really nice shipping discount, so it was worthwhile to try some things that might not even be your favorites, but those days are gone. Try playing with the checkout calculator on their shopping cart page and you'll get a sense of the shipping costs. FWIW I think one bottle each of Segarra and Serpis 65 will start you off nicely, and give you the option of the dreaded Slerpis should you decide to attempt it...

air shipping is about 2 weeks. Economy is about 9 weeks. Maybe 10. Do the air.

Go for the Segarra first and then the Serpis. Those are the SC brands I like the most. BTW its probably best cough up the extra bucks for the quicker shipping. Sometimes their bulk rate shipping can take a looong time.

Segarra taste like oak, do you like oak aged flavor? There is Kubler which is good but has a slight off taste. There is also NS 70, which I think is pretty good, even if it's not a distilled product. NS isn't too sweet, and doesn't have too much star anis like many of the other brands. Of course taste is subjective, some people prefer Serpis.

Segarra is the king of spanish. No if, ands, or buts.
Unless, of course, you are counting vintage,
which of course is not on the spirits corner. :P

Segarra is particularly good, as the only herbs in it are distilled wormwood and anise, and what give it it's signature flavour are the barrels it's aged in.

Ok Im new here and i was wonder what brand of absinth is the best from this webpage. http://www.spiritscorner.com/scriptsing/buscar.asp?K=Directorio&IdSeccion=56 I have looked at the rating guide that is linked in the forums and i have also looked at the buyers guide, but some of the brands are not shown on the buyers guid or the ratings and i was wondering if anyone here knew what one would be the best to get. Im guessing Serpis or La Blanche but im not sure.
