I had it for the first time about a month ago. Mind blown... I cut it with 101 whiskey and the long island ice tea mix, it was amazing and I in heaven. It is great when its just cut with ice water. I am looking forward to having it again and again. Too scared to do it neat though, I have gastritis.

I had a shot of this in a bar once. My sister, my friend and I. We ended up just sat staring for a few seconds because the shocker was.. a good effect.
Though, take note, if you have any stomach problems, don't drink it neat. I have gastro-oesophageal reflux disease and hadn't taken a tablet. Yeah... that was fun after that bad boy.
Still. Absinthe is my favourite spirit, and this is a delicious brand!

The burning sugar ritual is not part of the original ritual and should be avoided. It ruins the taste of a good absinthe.

Just got this have been drinking different absinthes for a while now as my fave. drink is Tremblement de Terre (Earthquake) which is 3pts absinthe to 3pts Cognac however with this strength 1pt absinethe was enough for me.Great Drink is a must try for fans of absinthe. But don't no if I would buy this one a second time.

Don't bother buying this if you are not going to take it seriously. Send me the bottle and I will take good care of it for you...Like all European Absinthes, you will not get stoned on it, only drunk. Enjoy it for what it is, an excellent drink.

My mate as well as myself decided against buying this. We really like the look of it. It's green, alluring sexy little glass vessel and fragrant, seductive nose would just be too dangerous. In other words' we can't be trusted with just a little taste. WE WOULD DRINK THE LOT.

To the people saying this is too strong: 2 things; first, look upon it as a 'concentrate' and it makes sense. Secondly, the strongest drink I've ever had was Polish Vodka at 96% alcohol.

Fairy clearly learnt how to mix absinthe in a New York bar.Absinthe should be served 1pt Absinthe to 5-7pts ice cold, spring water.This should be poured through a slotted spoon, with a sugar cube on top, (then mixed in to finish).People who decide they want to set fire to it understand nothing of the drink, nor the way it should be enjoyed.

A few shots is enough to have a good night, this drink MUST be respected. It is great as a 'long drink' with a bit poured in a glass and topped up with water. Enjoy!

- anonymous, 25th Jun '10
I had 4 shots of this, and 10 minutes later - i had no idea what i was doing, let alone where i was!!!! seriously, treat this drink with respect and don't underestimate it like I did!!

To enjoy the absinthe you've got to do the business: put a shot in a glass, pick up a half spoonful of sugar, put a drop of absinthe over the top of sugar (or dip in the glass, that why you can buy special spoon), light the sugar and burn until almost caramelised then stir into the glass. Let the whole burn for a few seconds then pour in a bit of water whilst stirring all the time. enjoy, two or three shots should make a lovely night.
