Full Version: Is Philippe Lasala Absinthe still a Mixed and macerated spirit.

In the review section of this site the Lasala is listed as a mixed and macerated spirit
but the site(Absinthes.com) of which I have bought the Absinthe list's it as being a distilled product, so I'm a bit confused as to which is what.

I noticed that the date of the reviews goes back a few years by now and I thought
perhaps old Philippe has improved his methods recently. Is this the case?

As a side note; I also bought two bottles of Perroquet. I don't want
to give the impression that I'm a cheapass.. Although I am.

Thanks to Andrew(If you're active on this forum) for your assistance.

The custom trolls are still in possession of my bottles but hopefully not for much longer.

How is oxy by the way? The top of his head must be as smooth and shiny
as a tenpin bowling ball by now.

Lasala is made by a big boose company, Bardinet. They don't seem to give enough of a xit about it on their own website


So I doubt they would give enough of a xit to 'improve' it.


No one on the forums gives a xit about Spanish absinth(e) anymore.
But if you like it. drink it.

Thanks for the reply and information Monsieur.

I could not find any clues on the net as to the actual origin of this product,
so you have been helpful.

The idea for buying the Lasala was driven by my intent to concoct a
Tremblement de Terre cocktail mixed from the aforementioned and some
cheap brandy.

I suspect it will be a relatively nice and affordable way of getting my friends, family and
I bombed on Absinth(e?).

Bugger off, we're stuffed!

Drinking Lasala = Dead End

A cocktail can only be as good as the ingredients used to make it.

Indeed. He joined the Hare Krishnas and was last seen panhandling outside a metro in Marseille. Orange is a nice color on him, I heard.

You suspect incorrectly. If you really must poison your family, just give them furniture polish to drink. It tastes the same as Lasala, and it's even cheaper.

Orange is so common. Saffron, befitting his floral delicacy.

The Hare Krishnas.. That's nice. I guess he needed something more ethereal to soothe his wild temperament.

I think you would be hard pressed to find a decent furniture polish for $34.50 a Litre.
Artemis
I didn't realize Lasala was so cheap.
By all means you should buy two liters


and get the whole family to polishing.

At last, a crapsinth at a realistic price!
Artemis
At that price, get a case, and poison some billabongs, put a dent in the wallaby population.

We use 4 wheel drives for that but I guess we could use it to clean off the blood.

Lasalla may be cheap, but the price one would have to pay to get me to drink it, would be very expensive.
Provenance
Lasalla is one of those old krapsinth brands I never tried.

Proof that not all luck is bad.
Artemis
Years ago I ordered a bottle of it from Spain and it arrived broken. They replaced it three for one at no cost. Even good luck can be bad.

That was only true if you chose to revive some old wood grain, or sink it, not drink it.
danishdart
I contacted Bardinet in the hope that they might answer my questions and surprisingly
they did.

They sent two PDF documents which they specified as analysis and technical sheets.

I have uploaded the technical sheet here:Click me

They list the ingredients simply as de-mineralised water, rectified alcohol, 'aromas de absenta'
and colouring.

Beggin' your pardon to disagree, but there's nothing essential at all about that stuff.
