I've had three bottles... and they've all smelled fishy at one point or another. It seems mostly when I haven't opened the bottle for a day or two and I take a more casual whiff than a real deep one that I get a real intense fishy smell...

To quote Head when I passed him the bottle last night with the fishy question -
"Oh god yes!"

I truly believe that the "fishy" odor of Emile 68 is just a fluke. Some people smell it, others do not. I think that something just went wrong. Perhaps the Pernots did'nt quite clean the still all the way or something. The taste however is quite good and I would not hesitate to recommend Emile 68 at any time. I don't think all batches were effected. Just my .02

The 68 IS the custom absinthe made for Liqueurs de France. There is only one Emile 68. The 45 is the version for domestic European consumption.

Sorry, this is probably a stupid question, but I've read this thread since the beginning and am still not certain of the answer. So....

For clarification purposes, is the fishy Emile in question the custom 68 or just the regular 68? I'm sure I've just missed something somewhere that would tell me, but it hasn't made it through to me yet. :-)

Holly Cow!!

Blackjack you have my eternal respect as keeper of useless fish knowledge. :-)

Kallisti, it's funny, but I also have the same picture hanging on the wall in my office. A friend gave it to me for Christmas, one of my favorite gifts that year.

Fish Heads = Barnes and Barnes...



And Barnes and Barnes were Robert Haimer and Bill Mumy. Bill Mumy played Will Robinson on the original Lost in Space, and played Lennier on Babylon 5. He has also written for several comic books, including Aquaman.

I am geek. Hear me blather.

I know (Dr. Demento played Fish Heads...)

That was meant to be a good-natured jab at chevy's trivia acumen...(after all, Dr. Demento wasn't the artist).

I'd hate to challenge you to trivial pursuit. :-)
