Excellent sampling pack for new tastes! Considering the (sometimes) difficult process of getting European Absinthe to the United States, it is wonderful to sample new Absinthes before trying to get entire, often-expensive bottles through the vagaries of shipping.
We were suprised by what suited our tastes and what didn't; had I not ordered the samples prior to an entire bottle, I would have been quite disappointed. The packaging is elegant and quite sturdy - arriving in pristine condition despite overseas travel. The 50 cl tubes of each Absinthe are a perfect amount for 2 people to sample one variety; with sugar or without? More water or less? Finding the perfect vehicle for maximum enjoyment was wonderfully easy! This set is also perfect to introduce the uninitiated to the wonders of European Absinthe - allowing for many different tastes in one sitting to determine a favorite.
It also makes a very classy gift and impressed the most snobbish of cocktail enthusiasts in a most satisfying manner.
Shipping was extremely fast and packed perfectly. The quality of Absinthes received was excellent. If you are looking for the perfect "try before you buy" - this is the item for you. Thanks to Absinthes.com for a wonderful product and experience.
Great concept! You get samples and spoons within a few days, you try them all at home with some friends while listening to good music, you gather feedbacks from them, and then you can order bottles or more samples of the most enjoyed ones for your next parties.
Easy and cheap!
This is the perfect gift box for whoever wishes to taste or discover quality absinthes without having to buy full bottles. I got the 6 samples + 2 spoons set and I was truly impressed by the packaging quality and delivery time. Now I know what absinthes I like the most and can order full bottles without worrying at all!
