Very absinthe-centric, this one is. Dan scored three types of absinthe that he’d never tried before and uncorked and sampled them during the recording. Jerry also had scored a bottle the day before of one new to him, and he and their mutual friend Pat gave their impressions.

Not all the absinthes sampled were hits.  One in fact was so unlike absinthe that it boggled Dan’s mind that it had the word on the label.

For the record, the brands discussed here are:

Pacifique
NV
Mephisto
Vieux Carre

Also included is a kind of surprise. Dan was forced to — suddenly — relocate from the L.A. area to Arizona. Why? Well, we explain in the podcast. 🙂

While in Arizona Dan learned first hand what a haboob is. And, no, it’s not a laughing breast, it’s more like something out of a disaster movie…

Our thanks go out to the Wormwood Society for the wealth of great information they provide on all things absinthe, and also to Magnatune.com for — as always — awesome music.

A special welcome to anyone coming in from Second Life to listen… If you do, let us know! Jerry set up a little portal to the podcast in virtual reality and if people actually use it, he’ll keep it going.
