The word Doubs is included on the label as an interim measure, for the purposes of smoothing the changeover from the old version to the new

And maybe, just a little, for the purpose of causing Guy to puke up his liver when he saw it for the first time?

As for the price, let's wait a little.

At a $1.41 per Euro, Mr. Bernanke will make Oxy cry.

Running with that thought . . . would it be cost-effective for a European distiller to contract with an American bottler/distributor, and ship bulk product to the US for bottling?

I'm guessing (yes, guessing) that there'd be no real impact on tax, but surely it'd reduce trans-Atlantic shipping cost.

It's probably not large scale enough to make that much difference.

That would be enough to keep the word "Doubs" on the label forever!


Btw pretty nice absinthe, fresh taste and good colour.

11? How did you break the code?????

All pretty much accurate.

PS: Our new Family Thirstbusta Supasize Doubs will come with a free 1 litre Pepsi, and BOTH fries AND mash. How's Jade ever going to compete with THAT????

So, Oxy…

Do you think the Mystique could be the first modern absinthe to compare favorably with some of the better Belle Epoque examples?

I drank a lot of absinthe during Kallistifest, and the Mystique was definitely my second favorite.

Oh yeah, my favorite was the 1914 Pernod Fils.

Of course, we had to lick it up off the carpet in Oxy's room, but still…
