  12. Steven,I tried Mansinthe when it first came out.It was fine,but I never had the urge to buy it again.Try letting an absinthe you're not crazy about rest like Louchey said,or just come back to it after exploring other brands and developing your palate for a while.I've been pleasantly surprised a few times that way.
