this document is still a work in progress. and keep in mind that each category is rated within that category.

so a 3 star "mixed & macerated" is NOT the same quality as a 3 star distilled.

I thought it would be fairer to judge products within their own league.

I have found the absinth rankings guide to be VERY valuable http://www.feeverte.net/idx.html

we also have a really cool faq that I've spent YEARS writing:

In the newer friendlier spirit of 1911:

good - Segarra

better - Un Emile

best - Absinthe from before the ban, or a very few, hard to obtain, privately made products (such as a few from Switzerland, for example).

Almost all other "brands" are irrelevant; almost all other "claims" are marketing bullshit, and what I've written here is entirely consistent with what you'll hear from people who know what they're talking about.

I would like to try my first bottle of absinthe and I am looking for serious and expert opinions. What would you suggest as the "good, better, best" choices? There seems to be many brands and claims, but little information that is consistant.
