Absinthe bos with Vincent Van Gogh on it

Recommended Posts

If you mean this one, it's not absinthe, it's fake crap, and it tastes awful.

 

Nope It is called Absinthe. It didn't get a high rating. I took a pic of the bottle while

I was at the SAQ. I picked up my first bottle of Taboo :twitchsmile:

You can see a pic of the bottle below:

It's called Absente. The name references the fact that in its original formulation it had no grande wormwood. Absent, get it? lololololololololololol

 

It's basically a star anise-intense oil mix pastis. The European and post-2007 US "contains wormwood" versions have shitty wormwood oil mixed in. It is also presweetened.

 

It was my first bottle of "absinthe." It didn't count and it doesn't taste anything like the real thing.

The only good thing about Absente was that they used to include a spoon with the bottle (not sure if they still do), but approx. $50 for an absinthe spoon is a bit much... :blink:
