Hello everyone.

I've been lurking here for almost a month now and I finally felt comfortable enough to register and attempt to participate in some of the discussions where I can.

I tried absinthe for the first time about a week ago and even though La Fee is looked down on by some here I quite enjoyed it.

I look foreward to trying many of the other Absinthes that have been mentioned here as well. I do want to see for myself what best fits my tastes.

Thanks for your kind attention.

Djt'Heutii

I think you were pretty lucky to have la Fee as your cherry popper. I still enjoy spicing up a sprite now and then with it!

Part of the fun of this obsession for many is trying different brands, and learning what quality tastes like. If you start at the top, where will you go from there?

Welcome indeed!

Many of us began our absinthe journey macerating our own VILE concoctions and working our way up through the Hill's, Absinthe Kings Sebor's, through the various Spanish and occasional offbeat Danish or other odd offerintg and finally achieving some degree of (sorta) true enlightenment with the arrival of the French and Swiss absinthes. If we were really fortunate (and REALLY FLUSH), a few of us got to experience the Nirvana of vintage absinthe, or one of the artisanals. You have started fairly close to the top...more power to you!

Thanks for the welcome.

I spent a lot of time researching absinthe and looking at the different brands before making my decision. The reviews here were instrumental in my trying La Fee first.

I think I'll try the UE 68 next.

Another welcome

My first taste was Un Emile 68 but I would
like to try La Fee.As far as that Sprite recipe,
I hate Sprite but might try it with 7-Up.

How about a "Hillbilly Fairy"-absinthe and
Mountian Dew? Or has it been done?

Or a "Redneck Fairy"-absinthe and Orange
Crush? Done?

The quote you are using is beautiful.

I don't know if I'm a "fan" per se, but I do like some of their music.
