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.

A label that reads 68 but the drink contains only 50% alcohol... Well, that sets the standard for this brand. Not one of the better Spanish absinthes.
Pernod Fils' first absinthe with the Pernod name on the label since the French ban in 1915. They claim it's based on the original recipe and maybe the looked at it quickly and then decided to do something completely different. This is not even close to vintage Pernod absinthe.
The fourth absinthe in the line of pre-ban reproductions to come out from Jade Liqueurs. This mimics a pre-ban Pernod Fils and though it's not an exact replica it's definitely a good absinthe and much closer to the original than the new Pernod Fils absinthe itself.
One of many Spanish oil mixes. This brand has been available for a really long time and has that typical citrusy Spanish touch.
This represents the urtyp of Czech absinth. Bitter.
This essence based absinthe come from a small company, based in Malmö - southern Sweden, known for their liqueurs and aquavits manufactured by mixing essences. The name may be recognized from "Prestige Absinthe Essence"...
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 very few modern distilled Spanish absentas. The Segarra distillery usually makes excellent brandy and then there's this quite special absinthe.
It was a great pleasure to see a stronger version of the nice Segarra absenta. But that was quickly killed by the wrongful use of Wormwood for coloring. That gives you a nasty bitterness. Too bad.
The famous red Spanish absinthe. Around 2005 several Spanish brands started to make absinthe in all kinds of colors. But the Serpis Red Absinthe is still one of the first, in the modern era.
A slightly stronger version of the classic red Serpis absinthe. If you want to make a Slerpis the right way, this is what you need.
An anise free version of the red Serpis absinthe aimed at the German market which prefers the slightly more bitter taste. I would think that it might do well in cocktails, but other than that I'd stick to the regular Serpis.
A distilled absinthe at a really attractive price. Only one flaw in the production ruins the concept of this being an affordable decent absinthe... It's far to bitter on the finish.
The first absinthe to get approval in the US since the ban was lifted in 2007. Manufactured in an old naval hangar outside San Fransisco and with ingredients not commonly found in traditional absinthe it is an interesting product on several levels.
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.
