MAD magazine's "Absinthe Brand Names We'll (Hopefully) Never See":
-- Cusenier Peroxydée
-- Cusenier Cyanurée
-- Cusenier Méthanée

chances are that the modern brand will die anyway, since it might be confused with hydrogen peroxide...

Here's a stumper: Is modern Cusenier Oxygenée really and truly "oxygenated"? If it isn't, I'll sue the pants off them for false advertising. Oxygen is important, man.

Got to click 'Les Familles de Spiritueux' and then 'Oxygenee'. Sorry that i can't give a direct link, but it wont work 'cause of their strange frames.
There's also something to be found on their english site. http://www.pernod-ricard.com/
If you do a search on 'oxy' and click the result 'oxygenee'. Cant give you a direct link either because when i try to go there directly i'm blocked by a french username/password login.
But it says something like "Launched in 2001, this new spirit, made from the extracts of small and large absinthe plants, is also produced from star-anise and green anise essences with floral notes. " The french version uses the terms 'grandes' and 'petites' plantes d'absinthe.

Can you provide the link to the Pernod/Cusenier site? Thanks

Pernod/Cusenier claim on their website that Oxygenee is made with extracts of Grand and Petite Wormwood. Sounds like Absinthe to me.
And it's very tasty. I'd recommend Oxy and Emile.

I would also recomend Kubler. My favorite Spanish brand is N.S. 70, Segarra is good but different. I has the tast of old Oak barrels so you have to decide if that's how you want your absinthe to taste. It's fine quality but definetly a different taste. Serpis also has a few fans here too.

Sambeau, yes I think Oxygenee is an absinthe.
It does for me what I want and it tastes great on the rocks. Even if it turns out not to be an absinthe I would still drink it because I like

And there it will hang!
Until- if- when- maybe... someone does a deep, probing, thrusting chemical analysis of it. With a spectrometer and/or a spirograph.
After which the results will be fiercly debated here, until reaching the conclusion finally that the number of angels that can dance on the head of that pin depends entirely on whether they are doing the tango or more of a moshing kind of thing.
Let it go man... let it go...

I'd like your opinion. Is Oxygenee truly absinthe? The reviews I've read in the buyers guide seem to have it up in the air.

I agree w/Nolan. You may also want to add Pernod 68 to the list.
Two or three years since you've been here!!?? Don't be such a stranger!
|Posted on Saturday, December 28, 2002 - 5:49 am: |
Yep, definitly try some of the French. Un Emile 68
or Guy. I also like the Oxygenee. If you want to try a better Spanish then try Segarra.

Hello all. Well, it has been a good two or three years since I last visited this forum and purchased some fine green goodness. The last purchase for me was Deva and Mayans. I would like to buy more, but am wondering if I should try something new (French maybe?) or stick to Deva. Thanks!
