You would be surprised the amount of crap that ends up in major publications that a single Google search would discredit.

But, yeah, Ted is dreamy...

Fortunately I read it before I bought it. Looks like a 500 words or less blurb about crap. Glossy photos and glossy words (ugh).
I couldn't believe the "reviews". Why on earth did they sample such crap? Haven't they ever heard of "google". You'd think the reporter would have stumbled across this site and managed to pick up at least a few bits of good information.

At least the ancient misconceptions were upeld, and we have nothing to fear from millions of readers suddenly cornering the market on quality absinthe.

The only redeeming part of the article was the last paragraph.

If anyone wants to see it, please email me privately.

There's lots of references to smacking the fairy's ass. go MAXIM!

The indulgent graphics irritate me to no end, but it's the advertising of a. strong that is making me livid.

Sebor Strong, the ripoff of the legit czech Sebor, is made in Mexico, and is the most prominent bottle "featured" in the Maxim article. 'Nuff said.

Is absinthe legal to produce and sell in Mexico? I haven't read the article.

I was reading that MAXIM article
and wondering WHY they didn't have
him in there. That handsome devil is
JUST the image they want to portray.

Also WHY that Mexican Absinthe got to
be front and center...

GO LIVE !!!
