My friend brought some back from Ibiza and sold it to me and my other friend for £10, we had it Friday night.

It sucked.

This shit was meant to be 80% proof and I was severely disappointed. My friend claimed he had 3 shots of the same stuff and he was wasted. We had 4 shots over the period of an hour and we felt nothing.

Any ideas why? The bottle hadn't been opened, the sticker was sealed, so we know it hadn't been tampered with. Plus it still tasted like crap and burned your throat for about 5 minutes after drinking it.

Anyone else had any? Was it any good?

i had some that brought back from Portugal by my housemate. it tasted like crap, had a worse after taste and definately didn't mix with lager. and that is why i don't drink spirits very often.

Was it the yellow kind or the green kind?

Yellow kind is only like 50% alcohol. Not all that potent. The Green kind is somewhere between 80% and 90% alcohol. I have had it before and can vouche for its ability to completely **** your world up.

You can get it in Tesco xD

According to wiki, the UK was one of the only countries not to ban Absinthe.
Oh and I've never drunk it either. I looked at the alcohol content on the bottle and got scared.

Maybe it was the conditions it travelled in. Alcohol does not travel very well.

Does drinking it 'dry' mean drinking it straight? If so, yes I did.

It's not "real" absinthe here though. Most countries that sell it, sell the version that doesn't have Wormwood in it.


That's what I remember anyway. I've had the proper stuff and it does screw you royally.

OK! You need to learn how to drink the green fairy like it was meant to be. It's a delightful experience.

I know, it says it's from Czech Republic, but it's still pretty strong.

It cost me 75 cents at a supermarket.

Actually real absinth contains wormwood as well as a high alcohol content.
Its almost impossible to get real wormwood absinth anymore by the way. I doubt many people can truthfully claim to have had it.
