"I think they said that with their equipment and process it's impossible to 'burn' the herbs (empyreuma?), but i guess it's still possible to push the distilation too far."

All the liquid come over and heat still on the herbs means burnt herbs. Empyreuma. More liquid come over than should, means tails in the product. Not as nasty as the first but still nasty. Telling people how to make good absinthe without being paid for that service means Santa Claus. Nobody here wearing a red suit that I know about.

By the way, has anyone ever tried to talk to Kübler about the 'tails Problem'? They were very friendly, interested and open minded when i mentioned it to them but since i'm not much of an Absinthe-expert (and back then i haven't even tasted Kübler myself) i wasn't really able to convince them. They guessed it's their special mixture of herbs that some might might have mistaken for something else and because of my lack of experience when it comes to absinthe distillation i wasn't really able to argue with them. The methods he described sounded pretty okay and professional though.(don't aks me for it my emails all got lost in a severe crash some time ago and i can't remember technical details)

I think they said that with their equipment and process it's impossible to 'burn' the herbs (empyreuma?), but i guess it's still possible to push the distilation too far.

Almost all the discussion has been about the Kubler 45... What about the 57?

After reading about Kubler here and in other forums, I did not think I'd like it... Ended up top five. Gassified, of course.

<<However, the "gassification" process does improve it noticeably. <<

Of course I'm not questionning the effectiveness of the "gassification" process...

By the way, I wonder if there's already a real name for this process...

Hey, they don't want to improve their product? Then they will lose sales! Simple as that.

Hmmm...I agree with Wolf that Kubler is a product that has tails and the presence of empyreuma. However, the "gassification" process does improve it noticeably. It won't make it a first class product, but it will make it more drinkable. It's too bad about Kubler though, because they have the potential to make a very good absinthe.

Ahh.. good news! I've ordered quite a few of Moonman's products, including #24, and recently lost track of which was which. Unfortunately, #25 sold out while I wasn't paying attention, and I thought I'd missed the opportunity to taste his Blanche. Evidently not. Yay.

Here`s Moonman`s opinion :

Kubbler 45 is full of tails and burned anis. No amount of ''gassification'', black magic or voodoo doll piercing can make it a decent product.


Segarra is a very nice and simple product. It is not only made with anis and wormwood ... there`s also a good base alcohol, distillation know how and a weird but IMO enjoyable brandy barrel aging that gives that special butterscotch character. A bottle can last me many months but when I feel like drinking it, there`s no substitute. I order it when I'm opening the last bottle in my reserve, which means I never drink it before many months of extra aging. This drinking/ordering habit probably improves my enjoyment of this product.

Someone made a reference to the upcomming Moonman`s blanche (batch 24 and 25)... I'm drinking a sample of the very young and almost un-aged elixir right now and I can already say that it will knock you off your feets. It is really not in the same league as the products discussed in this thread. I'm 100% sure people will like it. (I'm not spaming, it is already sold out anyway)... Reviews will probably show up in october/november.

Headly, you've tried over and over to drive me out of here, and you've succeeded. Finally.
You've finally grated my nerves enough. Finally.

Swarez! Glad to help. Give 'em
a yank for Ol' Heady Head.

Georgie thank you SOOOO much for
posting photos and information that I
have NEVER EVER SEEN BEFORE IN MY
ENTIRE life.

WHAT A Great ASSET you are?!?!?! You
are becoming the MODEL forumite! I do
believe you are quickly gaining the respect
and admiration of the ENTIRE Absinthe
community. All three of us!

Would you do me a favor?

It would be my pleasure to endure your
lengthy and poorly considered thoughts
about Thujone.

Perhaps you could entertain me with your
hypothesis on how the Pernods created
vintage Absinthe and dazzle me with
your speculations on the future of Modern
Absinthe production?

They are extremly nice people - imagine Grandfather Segarra sent me an e-mail in german language! He translated word by word with a dictionary and it was kind of funny to read, but in the end of the day I find this more than remarcable for a maybe 80 year old farmer. I doubt, that we all would do such things when we are 80! It show's how open these guys are, but also keep their decades of tradition. I have the highest respect for them.

I like Segarra also.
I mean, how the hell else are you ever
going to be really able to realize what the
other elements in an absinthe taste like besides
the wormwood and green anise?
And it's not only that, but
I mean, who would have thought that you could
just distill wormwood and anise and make it
taste good, anyway? I think it's rather humorous.
I felt the urge to laugh a bit across the back of
my lips as I read the words that came out of
Julian Segarra's mouth in Emerald Quest.
It was something like this, "So, what's in it?",
"Absinthe and Green Anise", "Nothing else?
No other herbs? No Hyssop? No Fennel?"
"NO!. Green Anise, Wormwood, that's all!"
It's classic.

Same with me. Segarra would be no. 4, but it's hard to compare, because it's not from the same region...

Well, I have always liked Kubler. I put it 3rd on my favorites list, behind the Un Emiles, and F. Guy. It has it's faults, but I like it anyways.
