I'm raising a glass of a very provocative Suisse Verte right now to that.

One thing I've learned is preban bottles are like pretty girls; most of them disappoint you (whether you're willing to admit it or not), but every now and then… wow.

And they're expensive too.



That's why I stay within my narrow focus, a sixty six buck bottle of 40s Herbsaint I recently opened, has made me happier than any pre-ban I've tasted.

Maybe it's time to take up golf.

My last three finds were exceptionally lucky, we'll all be decimated by a giant meteor now, or when a bottle of Milky-Way finally turns up.

If money were no object, I would overpay by a disgusting margin, then set the bottles in a field at a hundred yards and see what .45ACP incendiary bullets would do them, videotape the whole event and donate the tape to an absinthe museum for posteriority. Then drink some Lush Life or Texas Green and smile like a possum eating briars.

My last three finds were a premium paid on years of paying dues.

I know of a fine Suisse Verte but all it provoked me to do was drink more of it.

From the French forum today:
QUOTE
Je ne sais pas ce qu'il se dit sur Wormwood Society vu que le site est inaccessible , mais je sais que c'est Brian Robinson qui s'occupe maintenant de vendre ces bouteilles , elles font parties d'un lot de 200 bouteilles des années 1900 de vins , spiritueux et liqueurs venant de la cave d'un hôtel .
Il a publié une pré liste sur sa page face-book (vous pouvez la consulter son profil est ouvert au public ) il y a des bouteilles qui risquent de grimper très haut ....

The WS forum finally came back online a little while ago, and I've already voiced my opinion that they should apologize to both Phoenix and Artemis, in light of that link proving that they were attempting to shut down the competition for these bottles by removing the original thread. I'm neither surprised nor angry at the attempt to secure the bottles (at best, I could have afforded a couple of samples myself), but taking pains to do that while pretending as if that wasn't the case and simultaneously jumping all over the folks who called them out on it is simply pathetic. Honestly, I'm embarrassed for anyone who was involved with such duplicity.

C'mon, they're a not-for-profit, educational resource that can't possibly compete with the colossal, greed-feeding Oxy's of the old booze world. A little skullduggery and coat-throat tactics is to be expected to even the playing field.

Public apologies? I'd like to be there for that.
