Good thing, the reporter tasted Absente, Lucid, Verte Suisse and 2 czech brands :

Wired
Jaded Prole
looks weak.
Marc
No flaming at least.

But he overdiluted it.
Selmac
Looks like the old UE.
Absomphe
Or almost KOSG.
Le Gimp
Didn't use ICE COLD water.

Or the water's too warm. Either way: frusty.gif .

Article said he used ice water . . . so probably just overdiluted.

But he put in a good plug for VS.

Sadly, for those that give a xit, it's a Lucid bottle in the photo. And clearly, for those that give a xit, that's not Lucid in the glass.



But yeah, nice plug for VS.

Lucid absinthe is made with real wormwood that can be legally sold in the United States.

So what's right in the center of the photo?

Who knew he had his own line of absinthe spoons? Where did they get that?

Nuts to that.

Wired, ok.
I can imagine that most writers are sickened by the amount of crap "writing" on the net.
As a reader, I've approached my limit.

Buh, bye now!

Based on the quantity of liquid in the glass, it's probably more likely under diluted than over diluted (looks like the first Emile as WBT pointed out). The wrong kind of glass and the wrong kind of spoon also indicate that either the journalist didn't take that picture or he just doesn't give a shit. Doesn't matter. No doubt Lucid will sell more bottles and so will Jade thanks to the article, which will mean more people will get into absinthe which will mean an increase in the size of the US absinthe market. And I'm fine with any article that beats the shit out of Absente and the Czech bile.

Less words?

Same say?

Well, you know Donnie.

A paragraph to say a sentence.

I like to think of myself as the Charles Dickens of absinthe.

Dead a century?

We wish.

You're going to have to wait till 2176 for that.
