I just keep thinking of this guy in the dorm room next to me in college (longgggg time ago) who, could be talked into drinking used bong grape slushee (used to cool the smoke). We all thought it was hilariously funny but really disgusting.

Seriously, though, hashish flavor is not something I would seek unless I was looking for... hashish.

Absinthespoon,

There will be no THC at all in the cannabis vodka as this would be illegal to sell in the UK. They use the male plant leaves (which have no THC) to flavour the product and there won't be any THC from seeds in the bottle either.

For taste though, hemp gives a product a nice sweet, spicey flavour that tastes like the smell of a lump of hash. If you like that smell you'll like the taste of hemp flavoured products.

Yeah, I don't like Belvedere either. A much better sipping vodka is Mezzaluna if you can find it. Otherwise stick with Gray Goose, the best of these types of vodkas. I am partial to Frïs as a mixer and you can't beat Gordon's for the price. If you're down to your last few bucks and need to stay drunk for a few days, Five O'Clock vodka will get you by. Once you've expended that, try huffing some 87 octane in a plastic bag. I think Mobil is a bit better than Shell but in the end, it's all a matter of preference.

I think cannabis vodka is a stupid concept. There are cannabis seeds in the bottle. As far as I know there is little or no THC in seeds, and I doubt very much that they are tasty at all. It seems to me to be an exploitive product aimed at people who think they are going to get high drinking it. I don't even like regular vodka, but for some reason people keep giving it to me (One of my ex-coworkers gave me a 1.75 liter bottle of Belvedere when I left my job.)

I can't say anything about hemp wine, since I haven't tasted it, but I wouldn't go out of my way to try it.

Absinthespoon,

The cannabis vodka might taste alright. Hemp beer tastes ok and hemp wine tastes lovely. I tasted them at a food exhibition in London a few years back and immediately bought a few cases of the hemp wine. Unfortunately the company's website doesn't seem to respond to requests for more and their phone seems dead, The company was based in Amsterdam and was called Nirvana. I'd love to get hold of some of their hemp wine again.

I tried an Absinthe King miniature in London, just for educational purposes. It was fairly revolting, far from a pleasant drink, but not really as bad as I thought it would be. The added wormwood leaves in the bottle are silly, and undoubtedly do not improve the taste.

I'd almost like to try Absinthe King Gold, just to see exactly HOW revoling it is. They have miniatures now...

I think the only Czech absinthe I would wanna try is Sebor. I cant access the site though, it freezes up my screen. Sensory Overload or I should say the gerbal running in my computer is frail.

Yeah I saw the Hapsburg 85 in London. The sign in the window at Jerry's said "EXTREMELY DANGEROUS". That probably enhances its appeal to window shoppers. Plus it was right next to the cannabis vodka (gaaahh)- makes me shudder just to think how vile that must be.

Gah, they've got Hapsburg at _170_PROOF_ now? "It tastes like burning..."

yeah, drinkshop blows. None of those are really drinkable except Mary Mayans, and I don't really like that either, too one dimensional, although the bottle is seductive...
They're about as expensive as Betty!

I just looked- all of those absinthes are crappy, and their prices are outrageously high.

Using the google search engine this morning. I came across this site that carries about 8 different absinthes. Anyone ever bought anything from this site before ?? Just wondering...
