I'm interested in buying a good bottle of Absinthe and having it shipped to the U.S. Unfortunately, I am relatively new to the stuff and have no idea what to purchase, and where to purcahse it from.

Quite honestly, Sebor is *not* something I would qualify as 'traditional'. As far as the Czech products go, it is the only one which tastes like it wasn't made by children. While I consider it to be worth trying, and while it offers something a bit more interesting than some brands that taste like pastis and not much else, it certainly doesn't bear much resemblence to traditional absinthes.

Which "Czech Absinthe" are we talking about, that is very much like talking about "American Beer". Some are good, most are not, but you have to discuss them by brand name or you will not help anyone here avoid the ones you didn't like.

Some brands (Hills) taste like someone urinated into a vat of industrial ethanol and added some green food color to it. Other brands (Sebor) have a nice traditional flavor but are only a bit weak.
