LF absinthe rec: Kubler vs Lucid

joreese | Dec 6, 200711:08 PM     2

I've decided to pick up a bottle of absinthe as a Christmas present for a friend. After some research, I *think* my best bets are either Kubler or Lucid. They seem to be decent brands, I can get them locally, and the price is about right. But I don't know what the differences between the two brands are, whether any differences are significant, or whether one is generally considered superior to the other.

Would anyone out there who's tried both be willing to try to explain any differences they noticed between the two? Or could anyone who's more knowledgable about spirits in general tell me if either is considered superior? Or if anyone has any recommendations for other, similarly priced, decent-quality absinthes (USD60-80), I'd love to hear them!

Thank you kindly!
