Full Version: Should I bother reviewing…..

I have a bottle that I'm wondering if I should even bother reviewing. I found a bottle, maybe one of the last, of Hermes in a store in Kurume. It was cheap. I think about 1200yen, call it 12 bucks. I'm positive it is not an old properly wormwooded version, just becuase I don't think it could have been sitting on the shelf THAT long! So as many have pointed out, it's not even a proper absinthe. I bought it mostly out of curiosity.
So my qiestion is, is it worth reviewing Hermes to add it's score to the list (which I don't think will be all theat high really) or should I just not. I doubt suntory will ever start producing it again. Is anyone curious enough to want a review?

Not really but thanks .

Review it, a quick one, it's always good to have a maximum of absinthes reviewed in the BG (after Harstmar move his lazy ass and add them viking_emoticon.gif )

Hermes is a part of the history. It should be documented.

" poop.gif " should suffice.

Even a negative review of something can be of use, or, educational to the masses.

Yeah , I was grumpy this morning , I guess that was my review , sorry about that , we really should have several reviews of everything that ever claimed to be absinthe .

Besides, there's good sport in getting innocent schmucks to drink things that they already claim to know better than to try.

Review it, most of us aren't going to run a across a bottle of it anytime soon.

Yes, please. The Hermes line of liquors were similar, I believe, to that of Dekuyper, Juaquin, Arrow, Brizzard etc. At least that's what I've gathered from vintage Japanese advertising. And I've always been curious about it.

Getting my hopes up like that.

OK then. Maybe I can get my friend to come over and we'll each have a glass, so there will be two opinions. We'll see. I gave him a taste before, so he may not be interested in having more :) Maybe if I tell him we'll have the Jade Edouard after he'll be more interested :) If anyone else isn't far from Fukuoka prefecture, you're welcome to come join in!
