Let me count the ways

In a recent Wormwood Society forum post, Dr. Cocktail listed the following absinthes in order of "popularity" with the Wormwood Society forum members:

  1. Edouard
  2. Eichelberger Verte 68
  3. Clandestine la Bleue
  4. Verte Suisse
  5. Nouvelle-Orléans
  6. Kübler 53
  7. La Ptite by rank and Montmartre by overall hits
  8. Montmartre
  9. Segarra 45 by rank, tied with Un Emile 68 by overall hits
  10. François Guy

Here at Chez InAbsinthia, we've only tried the Nouvelle-Orléans on this list, but we will certainly be trying to taste our way through the rest. Note especially the high ranking Eichelberger, which is a very reasonably priced (for an absinthe) German-made absinthe, and the Montmartre, another value absinthe from Austria.
