Musset didn't write the way he did because he drank absinthe, instead he drank for the same reason for which he wrote just like that: namely out of despair.
Czech absinth is known to have very little or no anise at all. Despite the fact that absinthe is a wormwood and anise based drink. Most of the Czech products are in the "Bohemian style" category - bitter and artificial. However today there are actually a few traditionally made French style absinthes coming from the Czech as well.

There are so many Czech absinths like this one it actually hurts. For real. Artificially colored and almost blue... The review speaks for itself.
It was only a matter of time until someone in the Czech Republic would actually make a decent absinthe. The blanche Toulouse-Lautrec is a good attempt and up to 2009 this was certainly the best the Czech had to offer.
Kyle Bairnsfather, successor of Martin Sebor, continued the ways of Sebor and have created several similar absinths. To me they're more of a decent bitter schnaps than an absinthe.
A distilled Czech absinthe blanche. At the time when it still existed it was without doubt the better of the Czech absinths.
One of the absolute first absinthes to hit the market in the mid 1990's. Based on all things that absinthe is not but still a little of a pioneer in the world of absinthe.
If you have way too much money on your hand and you feel like using them for something completely useless. That's still not reason enough to buy this. Typical Czech - Cheap to make, expensive to buy, bitter and really bad.
This represents the urtyp of Czech absinth. Bitter.
Sebor was also a pioneer in Czech absinth. Even though the Sebor isn't distilled it was still one of the better Czech absinths back in late 1990's. But that was back then...
One of the more well known Czech absinths. The Staroplzcenecky (try writing that really fast) come in red and green variaties. Pretty much only with the color differentiating the two.

Many writers "of old" wrote poems or passages about absinthe. Some drank it, some didn't. Find some of them here as well as reviews and notes on modern books about absinthe.
The Absinthe Poetry section has seen several updates the past days. Poems and information about more authors; Antonin Artaud, Arthur Symons, Francis Saltus Saltus, Florence Folsom and Robert Loveman. Open your mind and have a drink while you enjoy their lyrics.
It's the new bistro, the new bar in town. A good place to meet when meeting in real life isn't always an option. Meet me on facebook for more updates from the absinthe world.
