I'm looking for recommendations for my next order. This far I've really tasted only few absinthes: Kübler, Mansinthe, and Jade Verte Suisse & Edouard. The last three have been delicious. For the Jades I paid 65 euros for a bottle. I thought that my next purchase shouldn't be more expensive. So… any ideas?

Ridge, Berthe De Joux, Duplais, Delaware Phoenix (any of theirs)… The list goes on. Look around here and WWS, and you'll find people talking about the same bottles over and and over.

Well yes, I was a bit lazy. I thought that by asking I don't have to check if the recommendations are overpriced.

I recommend not quoting the post immediately above yours. Also, rather than going to a place where people slobber praise over anything, you might read more of what has already been posted on this forum or go to our Buyer's Guide section.

Bite the bullet.
Break the bank.
Buy King of Spirits Gold.

Nothing else compares.

Or you could buy Pacifique & Walton Waters.

Both are very good.

Ridge, Delaware Phoenix, Pacific, and Philadelphia, are all American distilleries whose current offerings are quite good. By current, I mean within the last couple of months, and no earlier than that. No matter which ones you go with, some oxygenation and proper storage, have worked for me. I find slow drips help, but that is true of louche challeneged absinthes. My favorites have a louche that could hide submarines even if backlit by the sun.
If you are in Europe, Emile Pernot's Sauvage, Duplais Verte, and La Clandestine have all tickled my fancy. Regretfully my favorite Euro-sinthes (Sauvage, L'Anicienne, & L'Artisanale) are either out of production, or are priced at Jade levels or more.

Slow drips are highly over-rated. You wind up missing a lot of the movie. I cut down on the large sodas at the concession stand.

My experimentation shows that it helps make a thicker louche, even in decent louching absinthes. On the lesser louchers, like Sauvage, it makes a huge difference. Now on the likes of BC, the artist, and the old one, they can stand so much water, it doesn't really matter. Funny those last three are on my top 5 list.

KoSG requires no water. No flame. Pour it. Knock it back. Your enjoyment is complete.

What could be easier?

Doesn't it require Edwardian costumes to be worn?
