Absinthe, with flaming clowns
Preparing for a friendly competition: A blind taste-test between two of the finer Swiss-recipe absinthes. Absinthe Duplais and Duplais Balance are two of a three-part series manufactured by Markus Lion's distillery, with label art by devious experimental-music superstars (David Tibet, Sleazy Christopherson, Steve Stapleton) ... Only missing the Duplais Blanche (stapleton's label), but these two were extremely fine. I have yet to try the stuff currently being made in the US following the lifting of the ban. I have my doubts about those...but no matter. The Duplais specimens are fantastic.
