Hello,

I'm a "newbie" to absinthe, and I'm glad that I found this community. Everyone seems nice and knowledgable on the subject (or at least loves their absinthe!).

Being 21, I recently purchased a bottle of Lucid after browsing the absinthes at my nearest BevMo. It may not have been the best absinthe to buy, but a score in the 70s means it's at least decent, especially if I was still in the process of discovering whether or not I would enjoy the absinthe..

Long story short, I loved the stuff. I hate the taste of alcohol in general, but the undertone is so faint that I couldn't help but pour another glass. And another.

Anywho.. I look forward to posting more! (You'll have to excuse the borderline poseur, cliché name. I figured it would sound cool after I started learning more about absinthe. cdog-plain.gif )

Welcome!

"Everyone seems nice and knowledgeable"
True, loads of them here.
Beware of the uglies though.

Welcome! If you like Lucid, you're in for a world of wonders. Wait until you try some Pacifique or Vieux Pontarlier! Or, if Bevmo is your only stop, they may have a bottle of Mansinthe or Obsello on the shelf.

I assume not naming them by name is an act of gentlemanly oversight. Just guessing, I wouldn't know.

And, hey there.

Having grown up in Germany, the Lakritz taste is simply wonderful.

Mansinthe was my first choice, but they didn't have any on the shelves.

There's nothing wrong with stock avatars. :)

I just bought a bottle of Obsello -- I like it.

I do like the Lucid a bit better, but I couldn't specify the reasons why.

Why? Why? Why?

(Indeed.)

I do not have an absinth connoiseur's vocabulary.

I was recommended the Obsello and tried it. pirate2.gif

I think they are maybe more referring to your comparison with Lucid. Just a guess here.
Marc
I'd rather drink Lucid over Obsello.
Steve
Marc: yes, absolutely!
Tibro
I'd rather not have to face that choice. There are always other options.
absinthist
I would rather drink absinthe.
