My friends and I have been ordering bottles of Absinthe from a distributer in France since we got hooked on it's effects over a year ago. At 100+ dollars a pop, it's an expensive habit, but well worth the hit.
They have recently allowed it's sale in the US after years of prohibition.
This brand, Lucid was created by one of the more popular Absinthe makers...and was the first (I believe) to be released here in the states.
It is really good, comparitively...especially when done as ritual would suggest.
You can get it for about $70. (62% alc.)
Anyone else tried?
