However Perruche,
they did mean it
"literally" having
taken it from a book.

But...

Well...
I know what you meant.

(no, they didn't mean it literally and have given lots of money to anti-discrimination charities to make up for any misinterpretation by people who can't be bothered to read Camus)

I'm sure it was obvious, peter, you don't need a sarcasticon.

But Head has provided a nice one for future use!

actually, I thought you were being sarcastic about the color. It appears to be similar to Mari Mayans in color, from the picture.

i was being sarcastic (i need to find a sarcasticon!), as in i doubt that color could be created naturally...this 'old recipe' looks like it was 'recuperated' from the early 1970's, along with the bottle and label...

>We recommend this absinthe for those palates that either do not like anis...

if you don't like anis flavor, it is highly unlikely you will like the licorice flavor, either...they should have done something actually different, if this was the case, like mint...

Absinthespoon, he was being sarcastic, as in he doubts the authenticity and antiquity of the product.

I seem to recall this coming up recently and that someone had tried it, but I can't find it in the archives.

petermarc, why do you say it's naturally colored? It looks pretty fluorescent to me in the picture. I couldn't find anything about the coloring in the description- do you assume that because it's an "old recipe" or did I miss something, or do you have other knowledge (as usual)?

If I would have seen this a week ago, I would have added it to my order just to try it.

From spiritscorner:

Today we want to present a new absinthe that has come out to the market: Absinthe Lehmann. It is made by a small, family-owned distillery that has recuperated an old recipe. This recipe shows that even many years ago there were also some absinthes made without anis. This absinthe does therefore not louche, but still the taste is well balanced between licorice and wormwood. Despite the balance, this absinthe has a high content of wormwood (and thus of thujone).

We recommend this absinthe for those palates that either do not like anis or that want to taste more wormwood in absinthe.

You can find it at:
