And amazingly it wasn't bourbon

It was, in fact, a spirit I know little about: Absinthe.

The bottle I ordered is part of a super limited production (<160 bottles) out of the Czech Republic. It has been hailed as the closest thing you can get to pre-ban absinthe.

I should receive it before Christmas, no idea if I'll open it right away or save it for a rainy day...

Here are some reviews on it: http://www.wormwoodsociety.org/index...sk=view&id=604
