Listen, Dr. O.  If you are so convinced you are right, put yout gas chromatographer where your mouth is.

You'd need a GC the size of Jupiter to fit in his big ass mouth. sp_ike.gif sp_ike.gif sp_ike.gif sp_ike.gif sp_ike.gif sp_ike.gif

How ironic that the huge quantity of time Dr. Snordinaire spent poring over the forum archives in a desperate attempt to find a contradiction in Ted's statements, in fact led to a revelation that Ted's thorough research helped to shatter previously held notions of thujone levels in vintage Absinthe.

Good job, Dr. Here's a trophy for you: dildollwhite.gif

It seems to me there was a lot of dissing of Absente going on not long ago. Wasn't the derision because it didn't contain the all-important (at that time) winnie.gif? Maybe we should all reconsider Absente. Without changing, it has gone from fake absinthe to real absinthe! It's got wormwood and anise and it louches, so it's absinthe, right? Or isn't it? Doesn't Southern Wormwood count? It's a traditional ingredient off absinthe. It's not as bitter as Grand Wormwood, but now we all hear real absinthe wasn't bitter (contemporary accounts to the contrary). It doesn't have any appreciable amount of winnie.gif, just like real absinthe.


Just in case you weren't being facetious, I'm going to answer:


No. No. No.

U.S. domestic Absente is an absinthe substitute. It does not containt Artemisia Absinthium. No A.A. No Absinthe.

The euro variety *does* contain A.A., but it is still considered a rather poor variety of absinthe.

THOOOOOOJONE does not an absinthe make. winnie.gif is moot, it is the Artemisia Absinthium itself that must be present. If southernwood made Absente absinthe, so would sage or mugwort. Ew!

And southernwood is not a traditional ingredient in absinthe.

Me? Facetious? Surely you jest!!

However I was actually mistaken that the ingredient in Absente was a variety of A. Absinthium. I stand corrected; thank you.

What's especially bizarre about L'Extreme D'Absente is that it's marketed to be added into normal absinthe, to up the winnie.gif ratio, but unless you were using it straight, as absinthe itself, it would hardly do anything with a couple of drops - assuming it even contains 30 ppm.gif as it claims to.

I was really dissapointed (although not surprised) when I saw that being sold in France, next, of course, to the picture of Van Gogh looking blurry.

If I ever drank anything and the world starts looking refracted and multicolored, I suppose I'd call an ambulance.

I salute Dr. Ordinaire on his forum research ability (no sarcasm intended). He has indeed put together a string of then and now posts that seemingly have Ted contradicting himself. However, if you did the same search on me, you'd find lots of things I said years ago that I would disavow today. It doesn't mean I was lying then, or lying now, much less that there is some conspiracy to defraud; it only means I've learned along the way.

"If I ever drank anything and the world starts looking refracted and multicolored, I suppose I'd call an ambulance."

Well, shroom juice is SUPPOSED to have that result ....

As I vaguely recall it DID, when I tried it. It was a lot like looking at the landscape through a prism. Damn those Sierra Nevadas were never more beautiful!!!
