Baz -

You misunderstand. I regularly buy Serpis 65. I like it, in spite of the orangeness. I suppose it just contributes to the Serpisicity.

The "Slerpis" is mentioned on Verawench's website. It's Serpis mixed with a cherry Slurpee.

Wolfgang -

GASP! The Nasty Sebor Strong (oops, I did it again) isn't even ON that website! (the good one, that is)

Is it possible someone is dragging Mr. Sebor's mediocre (by all accounts) name through the mud with a name theft? If so, why isn't the lad SUING?

Oops, there it is on the website, saying that someone is selling an imitation. "Please note Sebor Absinth has its share of people trying to sell the public something other than "Sebor Absinth". I quess we should take this as a compliment as "Imitation is the best form of flattery". "

Perhaps Kallisti can update the links in the buyer's guide to be sure nobody accidentally purchases the Nasty Sebor Strong when they think they're getting "The Best Absinthe the Modern World has Known."

Maybe they come from the same distillerie, I don't know, but for sure the bad one use a very bad base alcohol.

Anyway IMO, even the good one is way too expensive for what it is.

Ok, i'll repeat it one last time... = the "good" Sebor (including the listed UK distributors) = the BAD one.

I had a bottle from both sources. The one from the bad source arrived broken but the smell of the remaining liquid was disgusting and chemical. I had lots of trouble to get my money back. I did get it back only after I created an web site and registered it to all major search engines.

if you haven't tried sir piss, at least try it. Others will verify that it has a certain, um... appeal. If your into that kind of thing. Which I'm not. I mean, I am but I'm not. If you know what I mean.

But Wolfgang, aren't they both from the same distillery?

Sebor Strong is majorally nasty! However, it did kill all the ants in my kitchen that dared to go near the spoon I used..

Sebor strong is an undrinkable ripoff. The regular Sebor is drinkable and to my knowledge is the best Czech absinthe available (but I didn't had the courage to taste them all).

Slerpis . . . ewww, I read about the slerpis on Vera's website . . . Absinthe cherry slurpee, sounds GRODY to the MAX . . .

Probably worse than that NASTY Sebor Strong!

Hmm, has anyone detected in my posts that, for some reason, I think Sebor Strong is NASTY? Hope I'm not too subtle.

I don't have any slerpis... I've never had any slerpis except one time... yeah, that was that time... and it wasn't now... I know this because I know these things...

I'm sorry - still no F. Guy here! I'll let you know imediately when it arrived.

They did, however, leave the Anus in.
Sorry, I'm a fucking dick.

Pikkle, you can send em to me, I'll be happy to pay $5 each for them, since we know that old-fashioned, anise-heavy Serpis 65 will be just worthless now . . .

Golly, I've still got five bottles left... what am I going to do with all these bottles? Shucks...

Hay Markus have you got the F. Guy back in yet
Posted on Monday, June 3, 2002 - 1:21 pm:   Edit PostPrint Post

Haven't decided yet to take it in or not. I'm going to let others judge as well. One tongue is not always objective. Maybe it's only me not liking this one and all the other love it....
We'll see!

are you going to be offering it markus?

Hi Folks,
I'm just sipping on a glass of the new Serpis. No Anis, quite bitter and not really tasty. Maybe the Anis-Haters like it, but I'm sure that every real Absintheur will hate this stuff! Be aware of it!
