Haha, well it is good to hear that many of you have finally joined my camp on this issue.
"Absinthe has secondary effects."
"I'm an alcoholic I don't feel anything, are you sure?"
"It won't knock you off your seat. It is subtle. I've proven it to myself."
"I don't care, I only drink absinthe because it is a meadow in a glass, who cares if you're right."
Well, alas, people are finally willing to admit it, now that we don't have to worry about it becoming legal.
For the record, I don't drink absinthe for the 'effects,' they are way too small to justify the purchase of a bottle. I drink it for the craftsmanship and flavor.
Now that we got that out of our system, anyone have a theory on why a verte or blanche may result in different effects?
Is it something about the process? Or simply different herbal content between brands?
That is after all, what the original poster was inquiring about!
