"strongest wormwood stuff"

That does NOT make the best absinthe.

Imagine - does 7% alcohol beer like Wildcat and Lucky XXX taste great? Why not? It has more alcohol than other beer...

Don't get hooked into marketing because absinthe became a buzz word in movies and music videos. If you are interested in enjoying really good absinthe, please read my previous replies (and in other threads, do a search... wow I just realized how long I've been drinking the stuff... I guess it has no side effects! )

Sorry, never got around to it! I still don't have very nice authentic glasses, or a nice water pitcher, so I never thought of doing a photo shoot of it.

It's sort of like being drunk, but the artistic part of your brain is in overdrive. It's not easy to explain.. But it's very subtle, so anyone who says they feel a profound high is probably getting some sort of placebo effect

Segarra 45 (Spanish) is my all time favourite, and Duplais (Swiss) is what I am drinking currently. I'm dying to try the Segarra 68, but it's like $380 per bottle!

Thujone doesn't have psychoactive properties so the content is irrelevant. Its just very strong booze which causes intense drunkness. I've drank it a few times, and cannot discern anything more than the regular subtle differences of drunkness which result from drinking different liquors.

OK let's see if I am clear on this then:

1) I have been drinking absinthe for over 6 years, I have tried dozens of brands of varying qualities from all over Europe
2) You drank it "a few times" in UK, and have "no idea" what brand you tried
3) UK is famous for serving terrible quality "absinthe" - the same cheap fake crap that gets sold in BC
4) You are saying that you didn't experience a secondary effect
5) Somehow, this means you are an expert on absinthe, and telling everyone who knows better that they are wrong.

Is that about it?

First things first, using the term "secondary effect" sounds ridiculous.

You're correct, though. While I doubt this effect is anything other than a different form of drunkness, it isn't my place to tell you what you experience.

Exactly. Some day you should try some real absinthe. You will experience a secondary effect (whether you like the term or not, that's the term used).

Dude, as I said, I'm sure I've had 'real' absinthe. The group of buddies I've drank it with are all major whiskey drinkers, so I would imagine that their passion for booze would translate when purchasing absinthe. Buying alcohol is very different in London than in Vancouver -- if you go to a great store, they simply wouldn't sell crap.

But yah, will try again.

I can almost guarantee you that it wasn't legit. UK was the first country where the whole 'absinthe craze' started in the early 2000's. Back then, the big brand was Hill's from Czech Rep. Nobody knew better, and didn't know that they were basically drinking scope in a fancy bottle.

Trust me, I know my absinthe history. I am 99% sure that you either had Hill's or some other brand with very little similarity to real absinthe. Those are the only brands sold in UK (and therefore BC, which based its absinthe regulations on UK).

Your friends can be the biggest whisky enthusiasts in the world; the fact is that you can't buy good absinthe in any store in UK if you tried.

And the fact that you didn't experience a secondary effect, and that you felt "intense drunkness" further proves my theory (the stuff they bought is most likely 150 proof)
