All Product Reviews » Faux Absinthe
The worse yet the most marketed and accessible absinthe (without an e)... I had some with friends at different time, always when I was already fairly drunk... The last time I took one shot of it flame-style and all I had already drunk about ten pints of beer and I think this is what made me decorate in a very personal way my cab on return home!

OK let's be nice, this thing might make a good bitter in certain situations I suppose, but it's far to pricey for what it is (a funky, commercial and artificial bitter) and more importantly, it's not absinthe. Period.

Fresher but bad-er memories than with Pernod...
