Happy new year!
I'd have to agree. Got my first bottle about 2 months ago and would have to say that it certainly does have a slight similarity to Pernod Fils Tarragona ( Not pernod SA Tarragona), yet slightly more bitter as well as having that Spanish lemon taste. But as it seems anti-badiene, the whole green anise, wormwood and lemon balm mix used is very pleasant. The bottle i have was made in 71'. And i have my reasons to believe that it stopped being made around 1972.

As far as I know Argenti is no longer made.
But, I don't know very much. Am often drunken you see.

Is Argenti still made in any form, or is this a defunct brand?

Yes Argenti is pretty interesting. It has a taste somewhat like vintage Tarragona but not exact. To my taste it is lemon and bitter orange flavored. There is something very Gin like in the
taste of Argenti, a sort of menthol like flavor.
I liked it quite a bit so my bottle didn't last very long.

Joalco!

Thanks for the info...I'd like to know more about this. Hmmm, I'll have to get a sample myself.

Nola ~

The Argenti is excellent. I was able to sample some a few months back, and have a bottle headed my way soon. It's got a complex flavor not seen often today.

Could one of the absinthe historians here give the dates of these bottles?

Very cool...Anyone know about this ARGENTI bottle? I'm not familiar and couldn't find anything in my research.

Estimado Albert,

It's hard to imagine anyone being angry with you, a seller who has proven himself to be honest and reliable. Your vintage absinthes are a fine antidote to the "antique" snake oil that's been cropping up on eBay recently.

Dear forum members,
I hope you will not be too angry with me if for once I use the forum to anounce that we have 2 vintage absinthes available, that we will sell through a small auction.

Please go to http://www.spiritscorner.com/ing/auction.htm
and have a look. If anybody has a question, please ask us at info@spiritscorner.com.

Best regards,
Albert
