I enjoyed it. :cheers:

It's always good to see people enjoying absinthe lightheartedly, and factually.

No kidding. You made it twice as far as I did. Those guys take annoying to a whole nother level. 


The room it smelled heavy of drinkin',  

and the sad silent song, made the hour twice as long,

as I waited for that sun to go sinkin'.

The video was... barely watchable, sadly (yeah, I skipped around quite a bit).

 

They did have some nice things to say about the Wormwood Society though. I would be interested in hearing more about this absinthe in a more formal (and much more FOCUSED) review.

[1]. Yes. Two seemingly intelligent guys trying to act dumb -- and succeeding.

[2]. Me too. I couldn't bear to watch long enough to hear what these two had to say about it.

There's nothing less funny than someone trying to be forcefully funny and falling short. This guy, Derrick Schommer, has been trying to be Gary Vaynerchuk for years and has never quite measured up. Every video of his I have ever seen has been, at the least, painful, let alone the fact that they're usually rife with a dilettantes depth of understanding, and incorrect information to the extent that it renders them a total fucking waste of time. Fortunately they are not all this long.

Yeah... I was a little cranky this morning. It doesn't, however, change any of my opinion.

Yeah, but I like it when you're cranky.   It turns me on.  :biggrin:

I couldn't bear to watch the video. However, I am curious about this absinthe being it is distilled one county away from us and I've never heard of them. I also wonder if they are using actual pontica in the final flavoring/coloring step.


If you don't like anise at all, you're not likely to care for any decent absinthe, as absinthe is an anise flavored drink. It's kind of like asking if there are any good beers that don't taste like hops or malt.----Hiram
