Default Re: Absinth Flavour?

Lucid is distilled at the Combier distillery in Saumur, France. Home of the original Triple Sec and the Jade line of Absinthe. Where it lacks in flavor is due to lower quality ingredients of the more premium brands (quantity over quality). It's not bad, though. It, along with Kübler 53 are good absinthes to try for a first timer. Then they can decide if they want to progress to more interesting fare like Duplais, Belle Amie or la Clandestine.

I haven't tried the Mansinthe yet, but I hear it's pretty good.

Right now I have a package with la Clandestine, Duplais and Vieux Pontarlier coming for me. The only problem is that it's coming FedEx.

And we all know how f***ed up FedEx can be.
