Crappy apartment on beach blvd??? In H.B.?? Doubt it. That apartment is actually my little sisters and it is very nice for a young girl in college. I too live on beach blvd and i also have a ranch near zion National park in virgin utah. Really neat place, ill show you my picture album if you like. Listen man, i dont understand why how many houses i have or which state im currently in matters. There is four of us working on this and,more importantly, on other internet ventures. If you have a question about me then ask, i will answer as long as its relative to this forum and its not insulting. OS

Judging from the background of OS/Norhternlights photos of Absinthe bottles I'd say the beach house is not that special. They remind me of a crappy little apartment I used to rent on Beach Blvd.

I doubt there are any lear jets involved. OS is trying to make a buck. That's fine with me as long as the deals are honest.

Hey Optimal Smarms,

What's up with the Utah thing? I thought you are in L. A., selling tires and paying for your beach house next to Ozzy with your fabulous business plan. Do you ever do anything in a straight forward manner? It's hard for me to consider the idea of doing business with someone who uses a bunch of different handles and addresses. It just doesn't have honest business man written all over it. Please refrain from an explanation about how you commute by private Lear jet, necessary for an absinthe/rubber baron.

Yes, I agree about the aging in white oak barrels and all that jazz. But aging in the bottle also has an affect with many drinks. About 6 months ago i put aside about 40 bottles in my cellar that i am going to age for a long long time. When "sapin" came out i added about another 10 bottles to that. A lot of the bottles are good customers of mine from the tire business and from the absinthe business. I had a bottle of pernod fils that was very aged and although it was great i could not taste the difference of the aged herbs as ted could. Speaking of tarragona, i gave old betty 1200$ for a bottle of pernod, you know, one of the ones she found in the crate. Can you believe that after holding my money for 4 months she decides to return the money and sell the bottle to someone else for more money??? One of her little snoops told her of me as im sure you would assume. How dirty was that? thats alright though, im working on something that will let her realize that you dont hold a deposit for 4 months and then give it back because someone else can pay more. OS.

And, I think the "aging" is supposed to be pre-bottling.
Just my opinion.

The debate rages on on that one. My opinion is that the shorty is a necessity to put the chill on the harshness. Beyond that, you be talkin' long time inaction.
My opinion.
And I'm the guy that looks up to the village idiot.

Well excuse me mr serious. I was wondering if ageing an absinthe would be as productive as ageing a wine. I would be nice if it did because that would bring more interest to the drink but i dont believe anything more than a quick age is useful. OS

Although im pretty sure that jabi bottles his la bleue at "the source"(toilet), mine comes from VDT. OS.

The bathroom; is that where you do the drinking... or the filling of the empty bottles :-)

Methinks that last La bleue had a hint of urine (tongue planted firmly in cheek).

Looks like someone in Utah wants it to impress the Mormon goth chicks. I once knew a very strict Mormon girl who went absolutely WILD when she turned 16. After a year or two she went back to her old ways, more repressed than ever; but I suspect that she'll always have a secret taste for blood. Nothing like being at the right place at the right time...

$80 for the small (0.5L) bottle? Damn, I need to get 2 for this price.

Is that La toilette in the background?

between those spoons and the sebor 'absinth pipe' one could deduce that congnac is actually the ancestor to modern eastern european absinth...
that's class!

Yes, that's right. They're for use with coffee - you rested the spoon on the rim of the cup, put sugar in the spoon, added cognac, set it alight, and then stirred the burning sugar-cognac mixture into the coffee. There was apparently a vogue for this in the '50s. So a sugar ritual of a kind, just not an absinthe one!

"Hennseey"? Possibly "Hennessey" is what is meant here?
