NYT Calls Kubler "Best Value" Absinthe
Yes! Body paint IS good! Wait, what were we talking about? Oh, right...absinthe. Man, this day keeps getting better.
We just got word that the folks over at a little rag called the New York Times just ranked some absinthes based on value, and a little brand called Kubler came in as the best value. We've never had Kubler, but we're hoping to remedy that ASAP - any of our readers have an opinion they'd like to share? All we know is it apparently makes blondes dress like in the picture above. We'll take two bottles please.
Oh, you wanted the full ranking? Yeah, we can do that too. Sorry...we keep getting distracted by the picture. According to NYT here's the ranking:
4. Emile Pernot
5. St. George
6. Jade Nouvele-Orleans
8. La Clandenstine
Of this list we've only tried the Nouvelle-Orleans
, and we loved it but it kicked our asses
due to poor decision making. Read the full story and tasting notes at the New York Times

Not to be a jerk here, but I said this exact thing about Kubler's value a year before NYT published this.:)
Not that I think it is the best blanche, mind you!
"Of this list we've only tried the Nouvelle-Orleans"
Not so: you have already sampled and written up La Clandestine.
I am not sure if it is good or bad that you don't remember the tasting!
