I was unprepared for quite a beautifully crafted box. It’s one thing to see the pictures but once you receive it and open it, worth the money. The quality of the glass and spoon really make you feel the tradition in quite a delightful way. The Absinthe Innocent is just the right amount to get you started however you’ll soon understand why they come in a larger bottle for purchase! I bought this for myself but I will be purchasing again as a gift for a close enthusiast.
Where have you been all my life!? <br /> I began drinking The King, mainly for health reasons. The health benefits are precious to me.<br /> And I will endeavor to always have The King in my home. I sleep better, eat better, in general, he takes the edge off of pain. Thank's Mr. King !<br /> And,... you have the major bonus of The Green Fairy🧚♂️
Floating seeds in my Absinthe....
An unpleasant surprise awaited me for my latest king of spirit gold purchase. Floating seeds probably from the herbs were floating in the bottle. I needed to strain it first before I could drink it. I will be careful with my next purchase because it is my favorite drink.
I have purchased this brand of Absinthe twice, ... and am looking forward to a third purchase.<br /> There is most definitely something most special and particular to this fantastic beverage. <br /> HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMEND all of you Absinthe lovers to , ...give it a GO!!!<br /> You will not be disappointed!<br /> 🌻<br />
What they don’t mention in movies and shows is this stuff is harsh being high ABV. Do not take a shot and make sure it’s mixed properly, you may regret it. I personally enjoy it, my wife not so much. We did a regretful shot the night of arrival in celebration of a promotion. Don’t do that it’s 70%. I made a drink of a base of Absinth Beetle, a splash of quality rum and root beer and ice. I thought it was strong but good, my wife did not so I had 2 glasses. The anise does give a black licorice taste (like a very mellow sambuca comparatively). But indeed a different type of feeling after consumption, I would not use the word “drunk”. Highly recommend for a prestige Absinth experience. I look forward to filling a shelf and reviews with the other varieties they offer.
It fits but...
Sadly, it leaks. I think it needs a bigger gasket, maybe. But no matter how we screw it on, it leaks. It's beautiful though and fits my fountain the same as the old one. Lovely quality besides the leaky-ness. <br /> <br /> To be fair, I never tested the old one before it got broken (clumsy husband). So the whole contraption may just be leaky. Sad. Cause it's $$.<br /> <br /> If we can't fix it, it will be the most expensive candy dish on earth.
