Taking that into consideration… I had the opportunity to taste Hills a few years ago, possibly the most revolting alcohol I've tasted to date. I'm trying to imagine something worse.

Bruno, have you tried Hills (since you seem to have a strong constitution)?

It's like doing a taste comparison of shit from different dog or cat breeds. Is there really any sense in ranking them once you've reached that level? And if opinions vary do you actually learn anything useful?

Now can you adjust the color on your icon so it looks like brown smeared across your cheeks and nose?

Panning Hills and KOS, that was the old days. So much has changed since then.

Now Oxy sell 'em.

Reviews of the vile stuff are entertaining.

I sent one of the members a sample of Le Tourment as part of a blind tasting package to hear the review. Another shit variant.

It entertained me all the way to the sink.

Why bother?

The ulcerated leavings, already encrusted thereon, are so much more telling.

An apt review of King of Spirits.

A couple of years ago I got a sample from someone… I'll check my cabinet's darkest corners.

Edit: Unfortunately, I found it.

Prazky Prague Absinth. Just got in a bottle this week.

Easily the worst I've ever had. KOSG is like a breath of fresh air in comparison.

If anyone wants to punish themselves, PM me. I'm happy to send you a sample.

If I had some Elixier, we could trade, and share war stories, but, thankfully, I don't.

That stuff is bad, but Prazky is literally the only 'absinth' to evoke the gag factor for me.
