Got some absinthe

I had a glass yesterday and it wasn't that bad. It had a string licorce taste, very much like Jagermeister.

It ellicited a very wierd feeling (I only had 30ml of absinthe). I felt relaxed but very alert and clear. I can see how this can be addictive.

I've had Sebor, it's tasty, but I"ve been told by the "experts' there's better brands out there.


Love that anise taste though, I'm a sucker for herbal liquors
