The premier independent absinthe resource since 2003

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.

There are so many Czech absinths like this one it actually hurts. For real. Artificially colored and almost blue... The review speaks for itself.

Absinthe reviews

A colleague of mine went to Croatia for vacationing. On their way driving down there, they just happened to stop by for a few days in Prague. Guess what... "Nice" as they were, they bought me a bottle of absinth.

The Stromu absinth falls right into the category of crappy utterly disgusting Czech swill. With its blueish washer fluid like color and alcoholic chewing gum flavor and no louche what so ever, this is no good. It's crap. There's no more to be said.
