Hi to one and all, my name is Caitlyn and I have been curious about Absinthe since well before the ban was lifted, but have only of late made my first acquaintance with the Green Fairy. Needless to say it was love at first sip! Living in the San Francisco Bay area is fortunate in many ways, in particular, excellent Absinthe is readily available. Unlike a girl friend of mine, my first taste of Absinthe was a wonderful experience. My friend, however, has only tasted Lucid Absinthe and one that was probably from the Czech Republic as it was prepared in the flaming fashion popularized there (this made it more foul tasting than the Lucid according to my friend). So far I have had better luck. My first taste was Absente-Absinthe refined, then Grand Absente-Absinthe Originale, both quite delicious with a very prominent anise nose and flavor, a smooth finish without any bitterness from the wormwood. The Grand Absinthe is a little higher in alcohol content. My friend is not a big anise fan, but I'm hoping she can be won over by experiencing a real Absinthe. Suggestions would be appreciated

More recently I've continued my exploration with a bottle of Mata Hari-Absinthe Bohemian from Austria which uses salvia in it's recipe. It has a less obvious anise flavor, it also has a very slightly bitter finish (which I don't find objectionable) and seems a bit more complex than the other two. In fact, I'm enjoying as glass as I type and looking forward to finding my next treasure!

Welcome. Having tasted and liked some bad absinthe and some imitations, you will probably like the real thing. You should consider buying Walton Waters or some Pacifique, both good domestic absinthes. I'm sure others will give you suggestions as well. Life is too short for bad booze and you are fortunate to arrive when better is available.

Hard to imagine anything could make Lucid taste worse.

Hello, and welcome. Strange, I remembered that the Absente was also sugared but still quite bitter. Maybe the U.S. recipe differs from the European version.

Real, distilled absinthe will have no bitterness coming from grand wormwood, Artemisia absinthium, as only the aromatic properties of A.a. will come through in distillation (all real absinthe is distilled). Also, every real absinthe contains anise and louches when water is added.

A girl friend is best tasted over several sittings. A one-off experience can be deceiving based upon the phase of the moon and several other factors. This is also true of absinthe.

"which uses saliva in it's recipe"

Someone get this girl a glass of absinthe.

blink.gif Oops! I meant salvia, the herb, Lol. I hope saliva, other than my own, isn't one of the ingredients.

If you check your original posting you'll see that you originally spelled "salvia" the way you intended.

My quote was an attempt to correct your posting since I couldn't imagine that you confused absinthe with some two-bit, half-assed attempt at a drug trip.

Some people have no imagination.

And I use the term "people" very liberally. In this case spedcifikally.

I didn't even notice the salvia/saliva transposition when I copied it. That will teach me to capture the original and not a response. But it made the whole thing mo betta.

There are lots of varieties of salvia, but I presume the stuff in question at least pretends to include salvia divinorum.

Caitlyn, if you're real and you're serious, thank you for your attention to Fee Verte Forum. The stuff you have consumed isn't really absinthe. If you liked it, you're sure to like good absinthe even better.
