Hmm...this sounds very tempting. I'm partial to a bit of Absinthe now and again as some would testify but I don't have the time (nor indeed money) to locate and purchase the "good" stuff. I may make a visit next week once I'm off on-call...

Right' date=' Im going to the Moorings on Saturday. No doubt my attitude will be "I can handle shit loads of drink, this absinthe will be no probs" but really, I will most probably not remember how I got home.[/quote']

At the height of my drinking strength a few years ago, I lived with a bloke who holiday in the Czech Republic and brought back a coupl'a bottles of the 'real' stuff, I managed four shots being utter paraleticness, and later unconsciousness set in - and I think Flash's stuff is more potent, so be forewarned my friend!

(I feel over my aforementioned former flatmate on the way out of the house the next day, he was asleep on the front doorstep)

The effects hit in 10-20 minutes depending on how much you've eaten' date=' and are much more pronounced that we anticipated. Your body temp goes up a notch (very pleasant), and you feel happy and calm. People tell me that the feeling is not dissimlar to things they may have smoked once in the past. [/quote']

It was certainly more 'druggy' than other absinthe experiences I had. Or so I'd assume, ahem, ahem....

Flash' date=' I odn't suppose you can remember which of the three Absinthe's Mel bought for myself and Chris on Firday can you? It was a pleasureable drinking experience I'd like to repeat. Escpecially when I get my student ID. Hot dang![/quote']

You had the big bad Edouard 72! If the glass was full up then you had it diluted with 5 parts water. It seems that most people prefer it 50/50 though.

If you have student ID and come on a Wednesday then you'll find it incredibly cheap all day, as is all the other 'specialist' grog.

I can verify that it does make an excellent digestant. Have heard this claim made for other drinks but this stuff really works. Had a big evening meal last night then sipped a Nouvelle-Orleans Absinthe whilst watching the movie. Within 20 mins felt this big welling up inside me, and up popped this fast but explosive belch, followed by 2 more over the course of the next 10 minutes. Afterwards all the bloating feeling was gone.

Must remember this next time I eat an Indian meal! I'd class it right up there with digestive enzyme tablets.

wasnt too keen on drinking absinthe on friday but was forced into it. it doesnt taste as bad as i thought it would, managed to avoid getting totally wasted by knocking over my second glass with my chest whilst standing at the bar. such a waste but at least i remember getting home this time.
