Is the Brevans A O Spare worth picking up?

I'd say it's one of the best to come from them.

I just noticed you can get one each of all 4 Jades (or 4 of one kind) for £194. That comes to U.S. $82/bottle.

$320 for 4 bottles of absinthe is still a lot of $. That's almost one whole unemployment check.

But think how much better you'll feel about your unemployment whilst imbibing.

Not to be a bad influence, but I'm currently unemployed and still couldn't resist plunking down nearly an unemployment check on the Jade 4. Thank you, State of Colorado.

(Aside from this I've been very frugal lately. Except for the $$$ I spent last month on Vienna Symphonic Library samples … another irresistible sale, and in the long run these samples will give me even more pleasure than the Jade.)

The level of unemployment, even just among people I know, keeps rising.

I'm actually lucky. I was the marketing guy for a symphony orchestra, and while I love orchestras, it turns out I hate marketing. In late July, I went to Mrs. Absinthesizer and told her I'd realized I could no longer stand my job, and had to quit. She was completely supportive (I married way above me!), and we worked out a time-line where I'd hang on until the beginning of October, when the new orchestra season was underway. Two days later - before I'd said anything to anyone at work about my intentions - they laid me off. So I was planning to be unemployed now anyway, while I make the transition to a more music-intensive career, and in the meantime I have unemployment benefits that I didn't expect to have.

Therefore: abs-cheers.gif

Historically, it normally does through much of the beginnings of economic recovery. Given that the recovery is still dubious, it probably won't improve much for quite some time.

Unemployment is, after all, a trailing economic indicator, and in this case it may be way, way trailing.

Unfortunately, an accurate statement.

No you can't. It says LDF is not shipping Jade to the US anymore. I guess that means Jade is awaiting US TTB approval? Unfortunately that also means we'll probably be stuck with US $110 a bottle.
