I got my fountain and started into my stash. I bought the #2 traditional 4 spout fountain from I heart absinthe, filled it with ice and water, then went at it all straightaway.

I just sat down with a glass of Jade Nouvelle Orleans, my second today, this time without the sugar cube and it's an improvement over that with the sugar. It did not need to be sweetened, and it's floral qualities really bloom without that.

I've been going through my stash of late, when I'm not working, and I work a lot. The absinthes I've been delving into are:

Jade PF 1901
Duplais Verte
La Clandestine
Jade VS 1898
Jade CF Berger
Jade Esprit Edouard
Jade Nouvelle Orleans

I have a bottles of Jade Terminus Oxygenee and Vieux Pontarlier on the way.

So far I'm most taken with the Jade CF Berger, which is a complex yet very well balanced absinthe with a pleasing nose to it and a very fine finish.

Only people with a shameful intolerance of the bitter beauties of life partake of absinthe with sugar, it is an anthema.
