My local liquor store dude informed me that they finally received their order of these two absinthes. I have read many reviews of Lucid, but the Grande Absente has just been released, so I'm having a hard time coming up with any info. What I have read is that Grande is very very sweet and has artificial coloring in it, which doesn't sound good. It's also priced higher. I know there are better and more expensive offerings online, but I'd like to at least try something I can purchase here (in Michigan) first.
