Since the Trenet "Absinthe" is available in the Swedish "liqeur shops" I thought I might as well try it.
A strong "synthetic" anise-esque smell (not very nice) hit me when I opened the bottle. The taste wasn´t any better. It tasted like an extremly cheap "wannabe" Ouzo with alot of ill-tasting strange synthetic flavours and costed almost twice as much as a regular Ouzo. There was a miniscule hint of wormwood in the taste (about 1/10 of what you can find in Cinzano Rosso or Ganzia or similar apperitifs).
After 1 glass I wanted to cry, after two glasses I was longing for the toilet YUCK!
Hopefully the Oxy-bottle that I bought together with the Trenet will taste alot better (I can´t touch it yet though, because I´m sharing it with a friend).
Cheers (here´s to green Chartreuse)!
