I've also seen a 'cordon' and a 'pontarlier' glass made from uranium, but those are extremely rare.

Somebody find that guy and slap the shit out of him.

 

As Khiddy said, disaster awaits! I just hope he isn't near any of us.

 

Or, someone could take him by the hand and show him the correct way to build a good drink.

 

Traditions........shortlived if you burn up!

 

Sheesh!

Woodworm. Doesn't sound so tasty.

 

They are also said to be bad for the furniture.

 

Fermentation - The Daily Wine Blog has a Christmas post about "enjoying" a glass of Absinthe with friends.

 

The problem is, he is convinced that he needs to do so "in the manner of Prague".

 

Disaster awaits!

 

Indeed...and unfortunately, wine and spirit bloggers of his ilk usually prove unwilling to back down once they've taken a public stand in favor of the so-called Czech tradition. I just hope he's not abusing good absinthe this holiday.

eBay is going up in absinth smoke. Here and here.

 

"It's Herbal, Yo!" Maybe but that dried up mess of blendered stems looks like it was from the 2000 season.

Wormwood's rather unsavory reputation and the banning of absinthe in the United States has added to the glamour and mystery surrounding wormwood. The active constituent thujone * most often absinthol * can be toxic in high doses, and may induce hallucinogenic visions. Wormwood has a long association with both bitterness and liquor, being an ingredient in Pernod, vermouth, absinthe and other alcoholic spirits.

2000 was a good year for absinthol and the goddess Artemis. It's like a snowball and it's hauling ass!

 

$1 per gram, exotic xit mane!

 

I've already written to other idjits recently and asked simple questions and still no reply.

 

Please, pardon the spelling, punctuation and grammar. It was merely for.........

 

Makes me twitch when I see that crap!

 

And not a good twitch. pppfpffpfpffttttt!!!!

 

Damn, just damn!

The discussion that has been going on in the comment section of the blog post that I referenced earlier (Fermentation: the Daily Wine Blog) has been pretty entertaining. Seems like there's someone with an anti-WS axe to grind, who can't do anything but quote stuff from Fee Verte.

 

And the blog author stuck by his Czech-style post, as Marlow predicted. What a tool. (I mean the blogger, not you, Marlow!)

Well bless their hearts. It's a shame they choose to pass on Marteau. I think they should stick with their traditions and hope they get videos of them on youtube.

 

I think it's to late to get in on the Darwin Awards for '08. '09 ought to be a banner year with folks like that.

 

Cheers!

Nature never knew colors like that. :thumbdown:

 

The item is not available at any retail outlet, and the container has

a value that substantially exceeds the current retail price of the

alcohol in the container.

 

Sadly, even though it's just a plain ol' clear bordeaux bottle, there's actually truth to that statement...just not at the price listed.

Aw, dude, they sell frickin' BLACK absinth. And here in my stodgy-ass world I thought the Slerpis was as far as one could go in abusing a tradition. Up til then anyway. The mind reels.

But at least one could make the stretch in that there's the precedent of black sambuca. I cold almost see some sort of parallel with black liquorice. Besides, it's the drink of choice for Vlad Blackitty Black Von Spookypants...or something like that.

 

What's purple got...Absinthe Nehi? I shudder to think if it's grape flavored.

I've enjoyed a bottle of the Libertine 68%. It wasn't Jolly Rancher Green. Notice in the photo, you can't see the seal?

 

Time to ask a question.

 

Edit:

And done.

Hi!

I've enjoyed Libertine before but I don't remember it being so green! In the photo, you can't quite make out the seal. Can you provide better photos?

Thanks!

Let's see if Panhead gets back to me. :devil:

Grape base?

 

Grape skins macerated for the color.

 

 

 

 

OK, that was a long stretch. Sorry. *smile*

Time to ask a question.

And the answer is:

its got a plastic like seal that overlaps the top it makes a tiny circle on top. even some of the other types of liqueurs i have have this same type of seal with a "T" shaped cork.. i agree the color is green,green. i got a bunch of bottles all at 1 time. from overseas.. i googled it and the ones i see are not that green.. the lables and seal look normal.. if in doubt.. dont bid.. i dont wanna sell someone something that they are not happy with.. and i dont want have to refund money and all the hassles along with it.. i dont drink i just buy auctions of lots.. and resell

 

Fair enough. I think I won't bid.
