Mr. "Absinth Is About Effect" here to award my first ever 1 STAR RATING! Ah yes, this absinth truely has no redeeming value. Somehow the "herbal" taste just comes off as really artificial, but you know...SORT OF. This of course is a bad thing, as it looks and tastes really artificial and there is really just and undertone of an ATTEMPT at herbal flavour. And the 70% alcohol couldn't be more obvious. The bottle? Ugly, very ugly! The louche? Nonexistant. The price? Expensive. But as I always point out, a good thujone content can always make up for this to SOME extent. But hey, they even screwed this up! Much like the Strong 68 (which is at least better tasting, cheaper and has a sweet bottle) you can't even feel the secondary effects until you're half drunk, and if I have to be half drunk to feel anything that means I'm going to have to gulp down quite a few drinks of this vile thing that's as bad tasting as Vision (but is forgivable due to it's INSANE effects). And why the hell would I do that with so many better drinks available for less money? Why would ANYONE!? In any case, congratulations, Czech Republic; you're the only country to get both my 1 and 5 star ratings-both ends of the spectrum! You got the best and the worst! Unfortunately, today I'm giving you the worst. Congrats to Absinth 35, though, which ironically is the same price! So go and BUY THAT INSTEAD!
