What about the right to incriminate yourself?!
absinthist
What about any rights at all?
Absomphe
Pleading the fifth is more fun.

Oh wait, that's drinking the fifth, nevermind.

You can have all the rights you want. On your own forum.

Let's not get carried away. There's a place for those who want enforced politeness.

I already have them. Or at least, had them still today/tonight.
speedle
Hey, you asked for any rights. Which I took, in the interest of sarcasm, as if to say, any and all rights. Which clearly you did not mean, thus I should have used the overused wink.gif

I feel that this topic evolving into a discussion of the forbidden act of making and choking down your own absinthe says a lot about St. George, and none of it good. Or maybe it's just a coincidence and my own imagination…

I never came close to gagging on SG… I still love it for being clean, spicy, intense and multi layered both in aroma and taste. OK, so it doesn't taste like absinthe. If I can find those same general qualities in classic and "real" modern absinthes, I may start attending AA meetings.

My Roquette 1797 and Doubs Mystique should be arriving early next week if not tomorrow abs-cheers.gif
OCvertDe
You can't know how jealous I am right now.
Nephrite
You can't know how in debt I am. I had to stop drinking again.

Btw, after doing a little math, I discovered ordering 4 50cl bottles of Duplais Balance ($1.07/cl) costs about the same with shipping as Lucid ($0.94/cl) after tax! Rounding down, this translates to $71.00 USD for 75cl bottle of Lucid and $80.00 USD for a 75cl bottle of Duplais Balance. Which would you drink on a regular basis?
absinthist
None?

Not all of us can afford Helfrich Verte on a regular basis.
OCvertDe
Isn't Balance a Blanche?
Nephrite
It's appears to be a verte.

It has a fine pale green tint and very expressive aromas when ice-cold water is added. Its lower (60% - 120 proof) alcohol strength for a 'verte' makes it ideal for the beginner or those seeking a lighter, refreshing drink.

Cheap, tasty and original. And a bit crazy just as its creator.

In that case, I'd have to try it before saying for sure, but in general I'd rather spend a couple dollars more for something much better… as Balance appears to be.
Nephrite
Not from here. Absinthe.de charges 75,00 Euro in shipping for 2 Litres of Helfrich which brings it to $1.50/cl or $112.50 USD for 75cl.
absinthist
Would not it be much easier to get the bottle or two or more, drink it; not bothering the mind with these maths calculations?
Nephrite
Not if you're broke… and like to drink. I need something to stretch the Roquette, Edouard, etc. Of course being sober more of the time might help too.
The Standard Deviant
How about water? Or living within one's means?
Nephrite
Exactly! I haven't had a drink in 3 days. I'm back to just being a workaholic… so I can make more money… so I can buy better absinthe… so I can put up with working longer hours… for better absinthe.
Wilson
A man has to have priorities. Looks like you have yours set.

Not to sound more shallow than I already am, but the label designs on the Duplais products really turn me off.
Nephrite
As much as the Doubs Mystique bottle turned off C.F. Blok-Andersen? Don't look at the bottle… go by this and this (read the whole thread). Until we have critiqued enough absinthe, critique the critiquers.

That's the first intelligent thing you've posted.

I'm slowly catching on… for some reason I have to be pissed off and drunk to be intelligent here… a 4th of a bottle of St. George helped… I like it!
