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.

Absinthe reviews

Ouch. That hurt. A Czech absinth entered my collection. Why? Well, a neighbour of mine had the bottle and they didn't ever drink it, so I bought it. The only really nice thing with this one, is that it's not the standard Hills bottle, but an older one, which I believe is not used anymore. Enough of that and on to the tasting. Not much of a tasting I can say. It smells of nothing but alcohol. It tastes nothing but alcohol when tried neat. It tastes nothing but alcohol when diluted with water. It doesn't louche at all, and it actually has nothing at all to do with a traditional absinthe. So, in this aspect it is not a very good absinthe, I'd say.
