I've been thinkin' about purchasing a bottle/kit through the net, and I've been wondering what the experience/taste is like? Read that it's VERY bitter, hench the sugar cubes, but does it have a tasty flavor when it's poured over the cubes? I forget the name of the ingredient that's found in the quality absinthe that's similar to an ingredient in marijuana, but supposedly the cheaper/lower quality versions out there do not have it at all. Even so, supposedly the amount found in it is so small that it has little effect, especially when you consider absinthe is around 75% alcohol. I think it's the "alchy" doing the real work! But, from what little I've read from real absinthe conisseur's (sp?), the effect from drinking it is still unlike any other "drunkeness" you'll ever experience. Kind of a very mellow buzz. Anyhoo...any forum member able to shed some light on this? Is it worth importing a bottle or two? And, if so, what brand(s) are recommendable???? Thanks for any info! Anyone that has seen Bram Stokers Dracula, saw Oldman/Ryder drinkin' this liquor during one scene.
