I tried absinthe today. Yes, I'm a faggot, whatever. I won't bore you with the details, so:

-Got fucking hammered after a single glass
-Kinda tastes like Ouzo
-Expensive (60 bucks for a 750 ml bottle)
-Makes people think you're a fag
-Am drunk but not wasted, i.e. I'm still lucid and can comprehend my environment to the point of normal functionality. I guess that's the main psychoactive effect everyone's on about. It's slightly different from being normally drunk, but not enough to write home about.

I definitely like it, but it's too expensive to buy for anything but special occasions. Luckily, I don't need that much to get properly retarded, so every bottle will probably last a while.

We have a bottle of Absente. We drank it in the recommended proportions to water and sugar, absolutely nothing happened.

Mmmm. I have warm memories of it and ouzo. But licorice candies make me gag. Strange.

if you didnt drink one with thujone made in one of the few countries where allowing thujone alkaloids into absinthe is acceptable, then you imagined everything.

thujone doesn't do very much re: getting high, especially at the levels you'd find it at in absinthe

unless you like muscle spasms i guess

Absente has very little thujone, so I'm sure that might have been a factor. It was still fairly pricey (about $40 a bottle when I bought it last February) and all of the paraphernalia adds up. I could have had real absinthe in Prague, except I was 17 and with my parents, so no.

Hahaha this is awesome. I couldn't think of anything to do with mine, but it mixed up well with some stuff and wasn't bad straight. That's def a bottle I'll be hanging on to though.

Absinthe now is not the same as absinthe at the turn of the century. It used to be made with Thujone, opium, and other narcotic compounds, but now it contains nothing of the sort.

All you're left with is an expensive, clear version of Sambuca with extra alcohol.

That said, i had some Lucid about a week ago and it was okay, but i wasn't really impressed. Which one did you have?

I think it is, but it's made by monks. Or at least it used to be. I saw the monastery from my train window but zipped by

I MISSED ALL THE EUROPEAN BOOZE HOTSPOTS

except in Italy, where my mom got drunk on a jug of wine and started going into hysterics about a dog that was in the restaurant and we just about left her there.

Lucid, same as you. Shit makes me sleepy.

It says it's got grand wormwood in it, so I think it should have at least a little thujone. Whether or not it's enough to do anything is another matter entirely, though. I didn't know traditional absinthe had opium in it, either, I guess that's why they banned it.

I'm on the fence with this one - Michael Collins Irish Whiskey. Single malt, "lightly peated" it doesn't taste like a blend, but it's not as tasty as Connemara. It's not quite as smooth, either, but that's part of being a single malt. Expensive, but I'm not sure it's worth the bucks. Good, not great.

I had a sip of the whiskey-cherry juice the cherries had been soaking in for months. It was pretty okay.

Has anyone tried the alcohol whipped cream? I keep seeing it and wondering, but I'm just not understanding what it adds to any given situation.

it doesn't have high enough levels of thujone or it would be illegal.

on the bright-side I'm sure wherever you buy your kratom has concentrated thujone alkaloids.
and you can get your opium from somebodies lawn!
