I reviewed Absinthine by Jean Boyer some time ago.

I now found out how to enjoy it.

2/3 NS70
1/3 Absinthine.

It cuts down the syrupy taste of NS and add some freshness to it.

The soap taste is probably cardamone but there's also something else I can't identify.

Some more notes on this alcohol/pseudo absinthe :

Neat, it taste like a smoother Chartreuse. Very low anis content and a complex herbal taste. I do not detect any artemisia absinthium but it's good. It is not a pastis and it is not an absinthe. It's just another herbal liquor.

If you can easily get your hands on a bottle, get one and mix it with NS or enjoy it straight. I got my bottle somewhere in the 4th "arrondissement" but can't remember the name of the "caviste".

There's some added sugar but not too much. Maybe half less than in Versinthe.

A nice souvenir from Paris.

Has anyone tried Havels?

It's Czech.

"damn, there's shitloads of absinthe now."

More accurate:

"damn, there's loads of shit-absinthe now."

Boyer is a French pastis-maker:

and it would appear their absinthine has already been reviewed here: "smells of soap."

"damn, there's shitloads of absinthe now..."

most people know i'm not an absinthe snob, but I would dispute that statement, petermarc.

This guy mentions Zelena, but he only compares it to Hills. Says it's worse:

On second thought. Nevermind. I read some of the other postings on that site, and it's just a bunch of drug fiends.

No pictures... and so many Czechy names.

Time to fire up the ol' search engine.

By _Blackjack on Thursday, March 14, 2002 - 11:09 am: Edit

Hm. They have several brand I have never even heard of:

Absenta Havels
Absenta Lehmann
Absenta Rodnik
Absenta Triple Veal (Mmmmm...triple veal...)
Absenta Zelena
Absinth L”ffel
Absinthine Boyer

They also seem to have an alcohol-free pastis...

OK, I found another German purveyor that has indicated that they ship to the US, and not only is their selection wider than weinquelle's, but their response time is much faster.

There prices seem quite reasonable for a German seller, but I am waiting on a response on how payment is taken, how much shipping is, and whether they offer a guareantee.
