I've drank it a few times, tastes pretty awful....like anise but strong. I wouldn't have any more than four shots of it as advised by a friend who drinks it a lot.. It has a different buzz that's noticeable but not overly so.I always wanted to kiss the Green Fairy and try absinthe.
I did the 2oz absinthe, sugar cube, spoon and water thing. It was good so I asked the wife if she wanted one. So, I mixed up two more and she hated it, so I drank hers too. Now I'm 6 shots in and at 75% alcohol, getting shitfaced quickly. With the funny buzz and high booze content, I agreed with my buddy. Some is good but there can be too much of a good thing sometimes.
The hangover from the absinthe was something else. Worse than a port and red wine headache. Probably another good reason not to have more than 4oz in a night.
