    I love it. I have the 70% Green Absinthe, and 80% 'Cannabis' Black Absinthe. Annoyed I left it at home though :nothing:

    I love aniseed so putting a shot in coke is amazing :coma: Even though that's not the way you're really meant to drink it.

    It's a letdown really ... I didn't witness any of the hallucinogenic experiences you can supposedly have.

    It's just like ridiculously pure (and therefore strong) alcohol. If you ask me, it tasted like that pure ethanol found in science labs (Not that a tasted it!).

    Remember it crystallises in your stomach so when you wake up and have some water in the morning you will get drunk all over again.
    This is actually creepy

    I'm honestly shocked at the people who are saying drink away. I'd only advise one shot, it was deadly when I tried it.

    Am I the only one that likes the taste?

    It's a bit like drinking really, really strong mouthwash.

    Only drink it for the first time around people you trust to look after you if you react badly to it.

    It's messy, there's no denying it. I quite like it, but I wouldn't recommend a lot of it. One shot is enough, if you don't want a hangover. If you're enjoying drinking for drinking, you'd have to water it down with something (:

    It's definitely not a socialising drink when it's straight! :L

    I wouldn't want to try it as I've already had unpleasant experiences with strong stuff that lead to me chundering everywhere, not to mention redecorating my room!
