Lots of rumours, few detials. Although it seems positively sinkable, there are a lot of rumours about the new imporved Pernod (-Ricard) absinthe. Anyone know, and is not affraid of PR's legal team?
Greytail
Buy a bottle and let us know.

True enough, it is crapsinthe after all.
sbmac
yeah…some guy was gonna make it for them.
Jack Batemaster
François Guy ?
sbmac
Ah…the "some guy" reference was not too vague. 'Tis what I heard, but it seems to be a floating fish in the tank now. Personally, I'm glad. There's enough mediocre (or worse) stuff on the market taking $ away from the few guys who do care.
Jack Batemaster
Ah, la crème d'un certain type jeune…
sbmac
It's on the menu at a few Chinese places.

That tree has already been pulped at the mill.

Now, will it be one-ply or more?
thegreenimp
Don't squeeze the Pernod Charmin.
Tibro
Charmin my ass. We're talkin poop.gif-papier.

A new absinthe is rising.


Taste test.
Jay
Odd choices for rickrolling. You didn't actually DRINK the Pernod, did you? wacko.gif
L'Assommoir
The point I was trying to make is PR can be a big bully in the market. A 'one absinthe to rule them all' metaphor.

and it does not taste very good.
Jack Batemaster
Seulement si ils la font en Suisse…
thegreenimp
Look, Rick's cousin Marvin Astley Batemaster
Tibro
One absinthe to rule them all? Hardly likely.
Père Ubu
Chairman Ricard assumed room temp. He must've drunk some Pernod absinthe with chop.gif.

It looks like someone recycled the cover of a Tom Tom Club album. I would drink with Tina Weymouth any day, though.
Tibro
Tom Tom Club actually put tasty material inside their packaging.
