On the way home today after work I decided to check out a local liquor store, so I walked into the store and asked if they had absinthe, for which I expected to be shown Lucid and Kubler. What I didn't expect was to be shown a bottle of something called Le Tourment Vert. The label says Avec Saveurs D'Herbes Et Wormwood, Brie-Sous-Archiac France and on the back it says Absinthe 50 percent alcohol. Has anyone seen and or tried this brand before? And what is it doing for sale in the town next to me? Click to view attachment blink.gif

Neat bottle. Never heard of it though.

Oh yea, I live on Long Island

This is hard to track down.(Google thinks I'm trying to type "tournament")
I finally found this, from a distillery in france, but their website hasn't been updated in four years, and clicking on the bottle in question on that website leads nowhere. You may have a cool collectible bottle (prolly filled w/crap) of something that isn't made anymore. And I have no idea how it got to Long Island.

At least it's aged crap. Nice bottle though.

I still have this question spinning around in my head, aren't the only brands of absinthe legally for sale in the USA Lucid, Kubler and soon St. George? What is the legal status of this Le Tourment? How can it be sold here? Should I buy all the bottles he has and hoard them for the next 100 years? It looked like he had about 3 of them. The price was $65 usd each.

The Vinetege web site says Le Tourment Vert

French Absinthe with Wormwood. We are sorry to announce that Le Tourment Vert is not available for sale. Limited Release.

Definitely don't buy more than one bottle until you've tried it since, as Imp just said, it's brand new and so:
a) it likely sux
b) you'll only be seeing more of it.

It’s an absinthe-fueled dystopia of shock blues
And “back-the-fuck-up-beggar-burnt™-baby-lies…™”
So thinly disguised
All in!!!
White wormwood sheets of cloudburst sin
Fuck the fuck off!!!
Don’t be shy
Don’t ask why
Just say, “HEY!!!”
It’s all an industry in play anyway
And the faggot fake green Peter Rabbit fairy say,
“Let's meet up in Pontarlier?”

I bet soon we will hear about "French Absinthe without Wormwood". So, get one of these "Torments", and if it, supposedly, goes down the sink, you will at least have a Useful Bot to Keep Things In.

Clicking on the bottle leads to a page that does not render correctly in Internet Explorer. However - it does work in Firefox... Either way, it contains the following text:
QUOTE
Absinthe française aux extraits d'armoise. Nous sommes au regret de vous annoncer que Le Tourment Vert n'est pas disponible à la vente. Quantités limitées.


It says extraits d'armoise. "Armoise" is Artemisia. In other words it could contain ANYTHING from within the Artemisia family. Does the bottle explicitly say wormwood as in Artemisia absinthium?

Their own english translation reads:

It's called Taking one for the team.

Something you'll do a lot of, when it comes to buying absinthe.

Oh, I'm sorry - due to foolish private duties I cannot attend, I was invited though.

The plans for that was successfully and brutally destroyed two weeks ago. No thanks to myself.

I wasn't and I'm paying very close fucking attention. Even to the little minor details.

So, did anyone pick up a bottle of this yet?
absinthist
Not a very close one. At least two people I know have already had it and presented their opinions elsewhere.
hartsmar
So, all of your friends already bought it!?

Yes I have been derelict in my duty to Satan and country, no I have not bought the bottle yet. I am, in reality, dirt poor and with the holidays I am trying to scheme up a way to come up with the money to buy it. (I am accepting donations, anyone got xmas spirit?). So anyway as soon as I can figure out a way to afford it, I am going to buy it. To be continued…
