I wouldn't draw any inferences at all from that 'preliminary' testing. It was incomplete and flawed. It was not reproducible. Its author was well intentioned, but some problems got in the way.

So it would be irresponsible to say anything about MM at this point.

Another important question regarding MM:

Is star anise present in sufficient quantities to cause permanent tongue damage?

Well, I'm hoping that you guys will be giving us the test results and the debut of Jade brand as one big Christmas present.

The inclusion of absinthium will contribute a variety of compounds. I have a system which considers these compounds and provides a reliable means of 'measurement' of absinthium content. I don't think we can draw any conclusions until all is said and done with this. Until then, is it pastis? Your guess is as good as mine.

In all this discussion about what should and shouldn't be considered absinthe, I continue to wonder about Mari Mayans. The preliminary thujone testing showed MM to have no thujone, and, as I recall, there was little chance of a false negative. Is it possible for MM to be made using A. absinthium but NOT contain thujone? I'm not saying that the presence of thujone equals the presence of wormwood, but it would seem that the ABSENCE of thujone would imply the absence of wormwood. Or am I off base?
