    Just wondering, has anyone tried it? I went to the ABC store for some rum but got that instead; I paid like $44 for the bottle(750mL). What really caught my attention was it said "Now with wormwood(Artemisia absinthium)" on the packaging.

    I tried to find reviews, in which most were bad and from 2008(one from 2009); so I don't know if they had the same drink that I bought, but on wormwoodsociety.org, it says they use Southern Wormwood(Artemisia abrotanum), but the packaging and website says otherwise.

    someone here recommended AbsintheAmerica.com LLC a while back - good product for the money.

    1pint + full bottle = you feel stuff :)

    it effects people differently. i think it's a mental thing though.

    it has a black licorice taste. if you like jaeger, you might like absinthe.
