The problem is, when you know this stuff, you face certain obstacles if you should publish it:

1. Stealing thunder from friends or acquaintances who have legitimate commercial aspirations

2. Giving information to the assholes who put out shitty products, but might put out good products if they knew better or weren't too lazy to learn the stuff to which Moonman's friend refers, thereby robbing market share from 1.

3. It's fun to be part of a secret society. Why paint it on the wall?

What is missing is a vintage reference that explain more details about the tails and the process in general.

So far it requires so much research to figure out a complete working recipe and process that those who know and understand what they are doing won`t share.

Maybe that`s for the same reasons there is no complete vintage historical reference about those details. The distillers didn`t share everything...

If I may add, Bedel`s treatise (1899) is a better reference for those who know how to read between the lines.

What is this "drunk" I keep hearing about? Does it involve thujone?

I prefer my absinthe thujone free. It keeps me light on my feet (insert joke here).

Oh! I thought this was going to be like the thread I saw over at dumbrella! I guess the boys here aren't drunk enough yet...

And this is not, I must add, Pendell's "version" of the recipe.
