I wouldn't care.

It came on the scene with such fanfare it couldn't be ignored, and the second batch was much the same. I never dreamt another batch could come and go without some mention of it here. The first batch, I bought a bottle (2007). Loved it, but there was no more to be had. The second batch, I bought the last one left before it sold out, what seemed like hours after hearing it was released, and a couple months later another from a member here who had to liquidate his inventory for reasons I can't remember (both 2008). Now you're telling me there was a batch in 2013? How many batches have I missed, by assuming I'd know it was available by checking in exclusively here every day for the last six years? This time, I'd have bought a case.

He seems to be selling his 2014 batch now, but you can still buy a 2008 for 120 euro from his reserve stash.

I just go there to window shop. The 2013 Belle is the only one of his I've tried, but wouldn't mind one bit tasting a few of the others.

I seem to remember getting my first two from Liqueurs de France, back in the day. An altogether much more pleasurable buying experience than that looks to be. I'm a little surprised it isn't available anywhere EP products are sold, but I probably shouldn't be.

I always liked his work.

A fine absinthe is the product of knowledge, craftsmanship, and talent. An exceptional absinthe is the product of those things plus obsession. Most absinthe is the product of marketing.
