"The Best Spanish out there" is a good way to describe it, because I don't think it can hold a candle to the Emile 68's, for example. But, when compared to other products in its "league" (NS, Deva, etc) does stand out.

At any rate, it's nice to see that it's available without having to wait for it on eBay.

Larsand, IMHO, is the best Spanish out there. It struck me as having a similarity to NS 70 with the most of the flaws removed. Alandia charges E44 for a bottle.

Unfortunately, it's only about a third of a bottle, and the cap is loose....probably not worth the effort, PV. Larsand is good, isn't it? And it looks like is selling it. (at least the last time I checked their website..they seem to change their product list rather frequently.)

How much is left? I'll make you an offer.

I still love Segarra. F. Guy and Un Emile 68 also need to be on the short list. Larsand and La Fee are a step below those three.

I don't know what's happened over the last year, but I've reached the point where I can't even choke down a glass of Segarra. While I appreciate that it's a quality product, that oaky, butterscotchy flavor just doesn't agree with me...and so it languishes in the bowels of my absinthe cellar, untouched and under-appreciated.

La Fee-too thick.
Lasala-too lemony.
Deva-day in day out, cheap as it comes, the steady Eddy.
Segarra-"Who dropped butterscotches in my absinthe?"

Well, I think that Segarra is still one of the best. Not too sure about the others. La Fee is

Unless, of course, La Fee, Lasala, Deva, and Segarra are still the very bestest commercially available absinthes . . .
