Did you know that...?
The modern version of absinthe can be traced back to the modest Swiss laboratory of Pierre Ordinaire, a French doctor who'd fled to Switzerland in the wake of the French Revolution. In 1792 he combined local herbs, fennel, wormwood, hyssop and anise among others, in an alcohol base. He prescribed and sold the 136 proof concoction as a cure-all medicinal tonic. It soon garnered the nickname the la Fee Verte (the Green Fairy) due to its translucent hue and the strange effect it had on its imbibers.

Terrible, terrible, terrible. Made from grain alcohol and concentrated herbal additives, and 10% tujone by concentration (czech law). There is nothing redeemable about this absinthe at all. It does not turn milky white when water is added (louching), it just gets lighter green, and it is harsh going down and heavily licorice flavoured. This stuff is for sale in any TESCO supermarket in Prague, and is the worst stuff I've ever forced down. Nothing subtle or beautiful about it at all or the after effects, in fact, one of the only absinthes that simply gave me a blackout. Stick with swiss, french and "king' brands of czech absinthe in that order. Avoid."<br />

This was my first try of this very interesting and odd product - Absinthe. My usual drink is high end tequila. The buzz is slighly slower for this, but very calm and pleasant. I might move up to a better grade next time to see the difference. I would say to try this product for occasions."<br />

Staroplzenecky Absinthe is very low in Thujone, almost not existent, but otherwise a tasty drink and is very common in bars in Prague. I recommend Absinthe Original Bitter for the 1st time buyer or drinker.<br />

The Absinthe does, indeed, taste a little Scope-like, but is still the real deal, with a nice ride once you're into it. It isn't a conneseur's Absinthe, and suffered terribly in the side-by-side test I conducted with serval other brands, and may change the taste of cocktail recipes in unpredictable ways. However, all that said, I have friends who are not regular consumers who found it easier to drink. It is very novice-friendly. If sipped neat, with no other comparison and no mixers, it's shortcomings are eventually concealed. I will buy it again and offer it to occasional drinkers, although I'll horde my other good stuff to myself."<br />
