    They have to lower the amount of thujone in order to sell it in the US. Just because they call it abinsthe doesn't make it absinthe.

    i bought a bottle of the Lucid Absinthe for New Years and i still have half the bottle. It was just a regular 'drunk' feeling...it was just nothing special and it doesnt taste particularly good.

    Doesn't most alcohol have a unique type of buzz anyhow? For instance, Wine tends to have a happier joyous type of buzz, beer tends to have a sloppy type of buzz, tequila is an angry type of buzz.

    We did this initially. Very nice flames, then the fiery sugar fell into the alcohol, and the flames got bigger.
    So, although very sexy...we shifted to the fireless approach, none of us are too smart so we need to keep it simple.

    My other friend agrees with you, that it tastes like poop and it doesn't feel any different.
    Like stated above the thujone levels are regulated here, but I can still tell a difference. Or I'm tricked very easily.

    I don't like black licorice that much either, but for me it's worth it.

    They have recently allowed it's sale in the US after years of prohibition.

    This brand, Lucid was created by one of the more popular Absinthe makers...and was the first (I believe) to be released here in the states.

    It is really good, comparitively...especially when done as ritual would suggest.
    You can get it for about $70. (62% alc.)

    Anyone else tried?
    Is it hard to import from outside the US? i thought i read somewhere that it could get held up at customs unless the distributor was very careful in somehow hiding it? i might be completely wrong.
