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

Already before opening the bottle I pretty much knew what was coming... Let me put it this way, at the back of the bottle, besides the lame story about the founder, it says; Don't drink and drive... OK, I know that. And then, it says; nor drink to excess. Now that's a good point. I will never drink this one to excess, that's for sure. Itäs now located way back on the shelf and it will never see daylight again!
First off, I was dumb enough to try it neat. I've had many drinks that are stronger than the Dedo's 75%. But this one got me burning. Nothing but strong alcohol. So, I didn't even bother bringing out the fountain, just a can of water, and to be on the safe side, I added some sugar. And I added much water. Still, it's not good. A shame this one took up space in my luggage on my way back from england!
