Isn't that where Hills comes from?

Your dog probably drank from the toilet too.

My doggie loved Hills..until it made him close his eyes forever.

Bob,
There's no good reason other than the discussion
of spanish brands seemed to heavily revolve around
Deva, La Sala, or MAri Mayans. I just don't recal
Segarra being that much of a focus. But Im happy
to be wrong here, can't wait to try it.

I would prefer to be buried alive with a mouthful of cockroaches than listen to Frente. Angie Hart's voice drives me insane, and as for "Accidently Kelly Street"... ugh.

By Lordhobgoblin on Saturday, January 20, 2001 - 03:35 am: Edit

My own top 3

1. Serpis
2. Deva
3. Sebor

Hobgoblin

What, you don't like Frente? Everyone who's
cool likes Frente...

By Midas on Friday, January 19, 2001 - 12:02 am: Edit

Holy crap, you had to mention Frente, didn't you!? I was hoping I'd never hear that name again.

Absente Absente
I listen to Frente'
There's no wormwood in my steep

I'm wondering WHY???
As I cry my sad ass to sleep

No? Say it ain't so???

By Don_walsh on Thursday, January 18, 2001 - 06:04 pm: Edit

Then your head must indeed be a prothesis.

Absente is not absinthe. It does not contain absinthium, being made from southernwood.

Absente costs more than some Spanish absinthes even with delivery included.

Absente is not even a good pastis. And Crillon deserve total sanction for their deceptive (and failed!) marketing practices.

I've been feeling a little emaciated myself lately -- this cold does burn up the calories.

By Head_prosthesis on Wednesday, January 17, 2001 - 07:36 pm: Edit

3) Herb Pharm Wormwood w/ jigger of Tabasco®
2) Wormwood grindings emaciated in Syrup of Romano

1) The King of Absinthe "ABSENTE" it's cheap, it's legal and it's available in the States "O"

By Bob_chong on Wednesday, January 17, 2001 - 06:14 pm: Edit

1. Segarra (the best of the Spanish).

2. Deva

3. LaSala

Greenhour--why were you surprised about Segarra? It's gotten nearly unanimous favorable ratings here over the past months.

By Pikkle on Wednesday, January 17, 2001 - 04:07 pm: Edit

1) Zenith
2) Hackerschorr Weiss
3) Maytag

Oh, absinthe, oops, didn't see that...
They're all god's children, they're all my
favorite.

By Greenhour on Wednesday, January 17, 2001 - 03:35 pm: Edit

Favorites:
#1 - La Bleue
#2 - Deva
#3 - Mari Mayans

Im very surprised to see Segarra on so many lists.
I've not given that brand much thought but it
seems I'll have to try it. Thanks for the
inspiration.

By Perruche_verte on Wednesday, January 17, 2001 - 02:02 pm: Edit

Here are mine:

1) Segarra
2) Serpis
3) Deva

Note that I haven't tried La Bleue, La Fee or Sebor.

By Chrysippvs on Wednesday, January 17, 2001 - 01:13 pm: Edit

Fav absinthes..

1. Pernod Fils and/or Pernod Edouard
2. La bleue
3. La Fee (If Oxygenee is absinthe then I enjoy Oxygenee much better than La Fee)

By Lowlight on Wednesday, January 17, 2001 - 12:35 pm: Edit

Thanks for the input guys!

It looks like Segarra is overall the most popular, followed by Deva and La Fee.

I wish SC carried La Fee.

By Billynorm on Wednesday, January 17, 2001 - 10:32 am: Edit

1. La Bleue [BEI]

2. Segarra

3. Deva

By Dengar on Wednesday, January 17, 2001 - 02:23 am: Edit

A mix of:

2/3 Deva
1/3 Pere Kermann

I quite like Deva but it's much to sweet in my opionion. So I tend to ad some Pere Kermann (which in its own tastes quite bad) to take the edge of the sweetness.

I'm waiting for La Fee and Teds stuff to knock out this compromise from the top of my list.

By Midas on Wednesday, January 17, 2001 - 02:18 am: Edit

1. La Fee
2. Deva
3. Segarra
This list is correct at the moment, but can and probably will change in the near future. I'd love to include an antique brand in that list, but alas...

By Pataphysician on Wednesday, January 17, 2001 - 01:08 am: Edit

1. Segarra
2. Lasala
3. Deva

That's from least to most sweet. I like it a little bitter. I like the sugar ritual.

By Joshua on Wednesday, January 17, 2001 - 12:37 am: Edit

1.deva- pretty good i like the minty flavor.
2.montana- first absinthe i ever tasted,
3.mari 70º- took 2 doses,after that put it on the shelf,looks much better than it tastes in my opinon.
these are the only three ive tasted

By Black_rabbit on Wednesday, January 17, 2001 - 12:18 am: Edit

1 Deva
2 sebor
3 segarra

By Rupert1029 on Tuesday, January 16, 2001 - 10:04 pm: Edit

Lease Favorite ?

Anything made in The Czech Republic except Sebor, which is ok.

By Germanandy on Tuesday, January 16, 2001 - 09:26 pm: Edit

- Segarra
- Deva
- Montana

By Martin on Tuesday, January 16, 2001 - 09:21 pm: Edit

1. Herring
2. Deva
3. Serpis/Sebor/Mari Mayans (three-way tie)

This is subject to change depending on any new brands tried.

By Rupert1029 on Tuesday, January 16, 2001 - 08:31 pm: Edit

1. Deva
2. Segarra
3. Serpis

But, I haven't tried Le Fee. Considering the rave reviews...it will likely replace Deva when I have tried it.

By Tavis on Tuesday, January 16, 2001 - 07:15 pm: Edit

I've tasted three, inluding MM, so only have a top two so far.

1. La Fee
2. Segarra

I suspect that it would take something special from Thailand or a La Bleue to affect the standings of these two.....

By Lowlight on Tuesday, January 16, 2001 - 07:11 pm: Edit

Of Absinthe?

Top 3 would be good too.
