"If yew ain't got a Harley, then yew ain't shit" attitude.

AND

"Don't let the snobs get to ya."

These two statements are equally stupid. A Harley and a Suzuki are both motorcycles and even a fool can see it. Une Emile and Mari Mayans, they're not both absinthe, but that's (very obviously, in this case) not always apparent to the uninitiated. Someone announces he likes to drink Mari Mayans; I couldn't care less, I won't even respond. He can drink piss for all I care. He announces that Mari Mayans is his favorite absinthe, and then asks if anybody agrees with him, I might just tell him the truth. It has nothing to do with being a snob.

The good folks are just trying to pass down some words of wisdom. Since most absinthes range between $80 to $100 a bottle(with shipping)you dont want to get stuck with something you wont drink. I also know a lot of people who wont even look at absinthe anymore becuse they had some nasty czech stuff first. If you have the money by allmeans go out and explore, in the end you have to go with what tastes good to you and makes you happy. For instance my all time favorite is Logan Fils, most people say it sucks but there is something I love about it, I consider it the Guinness of absinthe.

Sometimes, this board reminds me of the motorcycle board I frequent. I ride a Suzuki Intruder cruiser, and every week or so I have to listen to the "If yew ain't got a Harley, then yew ain't shit" attitude.

Don't let the snobs get to ya. Although I Love Emile, I still like Serpis, and I'll even have a glass of Sebor now and then for some variety.

Oh I also wanted to mention that I rather enjoy trying different brands, even ones not many have heard of or tried.. I think it adds nicely to the experience and the appreciation. If I liked a certain kind, I would hold off on getting another bottle of the same until I was satisfied with a more mature palet of tastes. Call it.. a fun hobby.

Actually I *have* tried Un Emile 68, and I hate to stand out in the crowd (wait, no I don't), but it wasn't my fav so far.. and I really enjoy the flavour, the louche, the colour, and the bottle of Mari Mayans, so sue me we all have different taste buds! If it makes you feel any better, Sebor was gross and it made me sick to my stomach. I did not, however, spend my own money on it. A friend likes Sebor, and I tried a glass of his. Mari Mayans, however, won my taste bud and drunken-ness award. :-)

Smutttt3, you're just getting your peepee slapped all over the place. Maybe it's time for a new approach, try a little decorum.

Show a little respect to those folks who must digest what you're saying.

When you've had a mouthful, then maybe you can comment...

But try and keep it in the Monkey Hole.

I used to always add one or two 200 ml bottles of MM to my SC order, because it didn't add to the shipping cost, and came in handy to take on short trips, and only cost about $7. I ordered one about 6 months ago, and almost gagged when I tried it!

According to Federico, as reported by Petermarc, Mari Mayans contains no sugar, but has a third "sweet" type of anise which makes it seem so.

"anyone else love Mari Mayans like I do?"

There's a lot of doubt as to whether Mari Mayans is absinthe at all. It would be more accurately called a star anise liqueur. It certainly is nothing like good absinthe, which contains little or no star anise and is not a liqueur (i.e., it's not sweetened in the bottle).

Once you've had some of the other brands, you will never drink Mari Mayans again, except on a dare. Although a lot of people started with Mari Mayans no one here drinks it anymore.

Fuck it. Forget the natural progression. MM is one of the gateway absinthes to the real deal. Get it over w/quick and empty your bank account quicker.

BreadFoam,

I'm glad you like some form of absinthe, but do yourself a favor, order from Liquers de France. You'll jump 80 rungs up the ladder of flavor.

Well my bottle finally came from SC last thursday. Quicker than they said it would, so yay. I have got to say.. this Mari Mayans stuff... yum! So far I think its the best I've tried so far (well I've only tried 4 different kinds, but out of those 4 this is my fav).. anyone else love Mari Mayans like I do? I think I might have to purchase another bottle of this soon. This time, I'll go the 'airmail' route, of course ;)
