Default Absinth


Bought my first bottle tonight.

Anyone else ever tried it

Spiritos made in Chech republic..........140 proof.

Wormwood. Hallucenogenic properties.

I see dead people.

A good end to a very tough week at work.

umm, if you buy it in the USA it doesnt contain wormwood and is only used as a mixer... i dont know if canada is the same, i always thought that you had to get the real stuff overseas

Dude, you know you smoke wormwood, right? Damn kids

And isn't it spelled absinthe? Anyways.. no I have not tried it. I hear it'* good.

I think high proof alcohol is used as a mixer, is it not?

Erowid on Absinthe
Erowid on Wormwood
I'm surprised Erowid doesn't have a whole lot of info on Wormwood.. oh well. Inform yourself, guys.

It is illegal to get real absinth in Canada...however that doesn't mean that it is impossible to get

Just have to know people and have the money to back it up.

I bought it at our local government Liqueur store.
Cost was $80. for a 26 oz bottle.
It is bottled and distributed from the Czech republic.
It is spelled Absinth without an e on the bottle (Hill'* brand)....maybe the Czechs don't know how to spell it, or the internet reference doesn't.
It is 70% alcohol content.
It is wickedly powerful and very pleasant tasting. Reminds me of Galiano with a slight liqourish flavour.

so what you are saying is that you got non-hallucinogenic absinthe.. (sans-wormwood) so i have now officially lost all interest in this thread...

God you guys, all getting excited over "Hallucinogin Absinthe." Just drop some acid

In all seriousness though.. is it like getting high, drinking this stuff? Alcohol is made with Absinthe, right? Or is it the other way around?
