At crippling personal expense, I've just ordered a bottle of Absinthe King of Spirits Gold.

On arrival of the bottle here, I propose to make up ten sample bottles. These will be sent absolutely free of charge, by airmail, to a panel of 10 Fee Verte members for tasting and evaluation.

To join the panel, to become one of this select and exclusive group (hereafter referred to as "The Chosen™"), you must fulfill all 5 of these conditions:

1. PM me with your full name, email and postal address.
2. Have submitted at least 5 reviews to the Buyers Guide, by the closing date for applications.
3. Agree in writing that on receipt of your sample you will retain it untouched until 8.00pm GMT on Sunday, December 10th 2006.
4. At exactly 8.00pm GMT on that day you will taste and evaluate your sample.
5. Within ONE HOUR of tasting - ie, before 9.00pm GMT, you will submit a fully completed Buyers Guide scoresheet to Hartsmar, with your evaluation of the product.

The closing date for applications is November 20th, 2006

Notes:
1. In the event of more than 10 qualified applications being received, priority will be give to those who've submitted the most reviews to the Buyers Guide.
2. Anyone who receives a sample, and then doesn't comply with items 4 and 5 above, will be publicly named and shamed here on the forum.

Lines are now open. Do you have what it takes to become one of The Chosen™?

It makes me glad I haven't reviewed anything yet, otherwise I'd probably be tempted.

Don't be despondent. You've got till Nov 20th to get your five qualifying reviews in.

It's 100mg of thujone remember. You're guaranteed to TripBalz™.

I'll do it. As I've mentioned at WS, I've never had any Czechsinth but I badmouth it so much that I really should have an actual experience on which to base my prejudices instead of just hearsay.

Is that masochistic?

Anyway, I'll easily have enough reviews done by then.

In all seriousness, that's my motivation for spending, shipping inclusive, $230 on the bottle.

There are some here who've tasted the regular KOS, but I don't know anyone who's actually tasted the Gold version, and if we're going to talk about it, we should be speaking from first hand experience.

I salute you and any volunteers for bravery and efforts above and beyond the call of duty.

Yikes. You might as well be soliciting people to become suicide bombers.

I'll do it.

I think I've gotten to the bottom of this. In wanting everyone to try it at the same time, are you actually trying to get a small number of people to collectively make an "UGH!" sound that's audible around the world? A truly amazing feat for record books?

The resulting report would make a great KOSGold marketing blurb.

$230.00 a bottle! Did you get it from a certain dwarf in the desert?

No way.

That's the real price.

She'd charge at least five beans, on a generous day.

I'll do it, as well, Oxy, but only because my "chosen", stereotypically cheap Jewish half can't resist getting a sample of $230 anything for free!
