It's all hype, really. It's just really fucking strong booze.

I'm drunk.

Did you have the stuff with proper wormwood?

I'm sure it is mainly just hype, but I actually enjoy a nice pastis every once in a while and the louching is kind of a fun ritual.



Re: absinthe Reply #2 on: October 24, 2009, 03:06:57 AM
I drank that the other night.  I felt really warm.  I was wasted though when I did it and I think it led me to feeling drunk without having had anything to drink for the last couple of days.  Either is was the absinthe or I'm getting the flu.



Re: absinthe Reply #3 on: October 24, 2009, 06:39:48 PM
I had that bottle I bought online like 6 years ago, and opened it for a *special* night a couple of months ago. I had the special sugar cubes and everything too, and made it louche pretty well. It was ok, did make my legs feel extra warm, but nothing special.



Re: absinthe Reply #4 on: October 25, 2009, 12:47:04 AM
I don't want to make rash assumptions, but I'm willing to bet money that at least some of you are actually talking about the high-priced pastis that goes by the name of Absente. There's a picture of Van Gogh on the box. It tastes pretty good, but by all accounts it's not the real muscle-convulsant thujone-containing Absinthe that was sold to alcoholics in the good old food-safety-free impressionist days of the 1800s.

Ultimately you're having the last laugh, but to those that make a big deal about Absinthe it's a joke.



Re: absinthe Reply #5 on: October 25, 2009, 04:49:36 AM
I guess that's what I had because it wasn't anything special
Loaded-Gun.com - I don't know what the hell they are talking about or why they are even there. They don't make serious points and they don't joke, but they still manage to make a lot of posts somehow.



Re: absinthe Reply #6 on: October 25, 2009, 09:53:15 AM
I have had Absente and didn't like it very much. 

I also have had some fancy French brand with a name I don't remember.  The flavor was a little better, but I would not go to the effort to get it again.



Re: absinthe Reply #7 on: October 25, 2009, 10:13:28 AM
Apparently there's some Czech stuff on the market that is quite similar or identical to the original rediscovered Absinthe recipes but it is yellow and doesn't really louche so the experts assume that key ingredients from the recipes had been left out purposely by the distillers in order to protect the secret recipe. It's funny there's a whole culture of weirdo who are really really into the idea of absinthe and spend hundreds of dollars trying to recreate it exactly. So far I've never heard of anyone recreating the mythic visions and such, so I'm left thinking it's mainly just hype. Whatever differences there are between the stuff on the market now and the genuine pre-ban stuff that still exists is just the degree of toxicity. The only thing that still keeps me interested is the fun and games of the louching process. Yes I am a child.



Re: absinthe Reply #8 on: October 25, 2009, 12:30:20 PM
We had the wormwood stuff, although I don't remember the brand. I have no idea how authentic it is, and honestly don't enjoy it enough to really care. We drink it once a year, on what would have been a friend of ours' birthday, in her memory.

It's a pretty simple test for whether or not you're going to enjoy absinthe or one of its knock-offs: Do you like Ouzo? If so you'll probably like absinthe.

Absinthe (Real Absinthe not the various knockoff or vodka mix brands) just became legal in the USSA in '07. While it's strong, it's acually supposed to be diluted to about 15-20% ABV. It's maybe a slightly different intoxication.

The wormwood stuff is completely unlike alcohol IMO.

Plus the "normal" is pretty heavy duty.It can make baaaaaaaaaaddddddddddd shit happen.
I've known alcoholics in denial say it should be banned.

(from bash.org) <Twig> I just had an argument with a girl I know. She was saying how it's unfair that if a guy fucks a different girl every week, he's a legend, but if a girl fucks just two guys in a year, she's a slut. So in response I told her that if a key opens lots of locks, then it's a master key. But if a lock is opened by lots of keys, then it's a shitty lock. That shut her up.



Re: absinthe Reply #31 on: November 12, 2009, 05:14:37 PM
We get our Czech Absinthe from what I assume is organized crime.

It's the real deal, though, and a highly enjoyable experience. The last time we drank it we wound up taking out every glass in the house and filling them up with various amounts of water and put on a concert.

The first time, however, was during Halloween a few years ago, and ended up with my lead guitar player and I staging an actual swordfight in the front yard.

Honestly, drinking absinthe the correct way is used as either a pain in the ass or a way to look superior in front of your friends. Emp is right, just smoke up and go mushroom light. And for the price of a bottle of the good shit, you can get a bottle of Midleton's Very Rare, and three decent buds.

Emp is definitely right, but I still find the ritual aspects to be kind of fun. The drink is a toy more than a new ride, but toys can be fun as long as you don't have too great expectations.



Re: absinthe Reply #37 on: January 29, 2010, 05:32:32 PM
i've had the rare opportunity to have real czech absinthe. otherwise i'd never drink the knock off shit. real absinthe tastes bad enough. it cost my uncle a few hundred dollars, and i knew it was legit before i tried it because he's that uncle that the rest of the family doesn't really mingle with. so anyway, i had absinthe and fillet mignon. amazing combination going down. i drank about 2 half plastic cups full, no mixing. a beer too. i knew i'd probably never have it again, so why not enjoy it in its purity.

well it tastes like shitty cunts.

but i had to go get firewood in the dark woods.
i followed a large glowing orb most of the time.
and when the night was about over, i filled a small plastic trash can with about half a gallon of puke.
and when i closed my eyes to sleep, i saw giant blades of grass trying to attack me.
i also remember calling people crying, begging them to save me from the grass...

kick ass new years.

but theres nothing really too fantastic about the shite.

You have indirectly invloved in people getting fucked fiscally. You would be aware of this and have developed a near total imunity towards people getting fucked up.  They knew the risks, they took the risks.   Same with small business (in a way), you never know when the man might move in next door.

That's how i saw ir relating to the price of fish.
