I have been interested in absinthe on and off for a few years now. I plan to order some this week (hooray for payday!). This post is sort of a question and sort of just a story. I was at a party a few weeks ago when a friend of mine told me he had a bottle of absinthe. He brought it out, and I was confused, cause it was brown. Since I had already pretty much finished off a bottle of Jagermeister to myself already, I felt it couldn't hurt to bad to try this stuff. It tasted strongly of cloves adn absolutely knocked me on my ass. It was a square bottle with a long slender neck. It had the word absinthe in bold yellow letters with some italian writing on it, and a picture of a castle. Has anyone heard of anything like this? Any ideas or thoughts (other than I was a moron to try it? trust me, I already know!!! :))

So looking forward to my first taste of the real thing!
