I didn't take any offense to the grammer thing. I asked the question because I was curious about what brands the others like to drink. Plus I felt it was one of those questions that everyone could answer. I know some people around here just get the underground stuff because it's probably a lot better than the commerical brands.

I don't think anyone presumed to correct your grammar, Nascentvirion. Some of us just don't buy very much absinthe -- for good reasons, or ill.

Thanks for the grammer correction, I was ed-U-micated in North Carolina. Blame the system!

Seems "a lot" of you really like the Un Emile that's one I haven't tried yet.

I don't acquire any absinthe "a lot" these days, for better or worse.

Emile 68, F. Guy, Segarra, Larsand. La Fee and Serpis tie for fifths.

Still haven't tried the Blanche or the Sapin.

My favorite 24 or so absinthes have never been for sale.

Of those that are for sale, I wouldn't "acquire" any of them "a lot"; in fact, the only ones I might buy are the Emile products.

I haven't really sampled many different brands to really respond to my own thread. I'm just curious to see what the other members say. They don't have to be in any order. Just 5 brands that you aqquire alot.
