>muh artists drank it
>muh special spoon and sugar ritual
>muh I'm smart enough for this unlike normal people attitude

This is the actual fedora beverage, right? I took 3 shots and I don't feel any odder than I normally do with shots.
>>
The problem is in most countries is the real absinthe, mit thujone, illegal. So its nothing diffrent to any other high % alcohol. You need to order from eastern europe and then you will deffinatly feel diffrent.
>>
>>7267367
It is a drink. Enjoy the novelty or drink it straight from the bottle. Nobody asked you to be a little fucking bitch because of your inferiority complex.
>>
>>7267367
>muh can't google wormwood so I shitpost
>>
So what you're saying is you actually wanted it to be all those things you listed?

That makes you the fedora-wearing autist.
>>
you're such a REAL guy, OP, so DOWN TO EARTH and I bet you don't TAKE NO SHIT from anyone huh? you special little snowflake you, so worldly and jaded and clever

Paul Verlaine would buy it for his boy toy Arthur Rimbaud
when Arthur Rimbaud was 16 he pretended he was older and went to go sex Verlaine up but then he got tired of him and told him he's leaving him and Verlaine shot him but Rimbaud didn't die
>>
>>7267367
I like it because it hardly takes a drop to fill up your mouth with the taste of licorice

I think op is a pretty cool guy. He trash talks absinthe and doesn't afraid of anything.
>>
>>7267425
You kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time.
>>
>>7267377
I wanted to try it, but was worried it would turn out to be kinda boring. How much would it cost to order it from there, do you think?
>>
yes, it is liquid fedora

fun though

>>7267377
Stop spreading that bullshit myth. I've had absinthe with thujone from wormwood, there is no difference. The reason why most absinthe available in North America is garbage is because we have garbage brands with terrible recipes. There is nothing unique about absinthe and it does not make you hallucinate. The reason we have that myth is because of creative drunks and shitty biographers.

I also don't like adding as much sugar as the "traditional" preparation requires. Same as with tea, Yuropoors have too big a sweet tooth.
>>
Don't get the real thing.

Thujone is barely fucking psychoactive.

In france or switzerland in the alpes you can still get the active/lilegal homemade stuff but it doesn't taste any better or make you feel any different.
>>
>>7267425

>verlaine would buy it for his boy toy rimbaud

You got the relationship backwards. Verlaine was basically Rimbaud's bitch.
>>
>>7267465
So what would be a good absinthe? Not trying to be rude, I actually want to know so don't buy some crappy brand or whatever.
>>
>>7267415
>being this mad over a drink

OP was just saying they didn't feel funny after drinking some.
>>
>>7267465
>North America
Not the US. There's tons of great absinthe here. Most of the truly awful shit is Czech
>>
>>7267468
It's sort of like expecting to get high off of nutmeg because it contains some psychoactive chemicals.
>>
>>7267367
>shots of absinthe
you're doing it wrong. louche that shit.
sugar is optional, btw. i usually don't use it.
>>
Absinthe leads to a 'lucid' drunk. Things dont get as fuzzy and you stay coherent. But I have to drink the whole damn bottle.

You dont trip balls, thujones dont matter, wormwood is just for flavor.

Black licorice and star anise. Also its fun to louche it.
>>
Once I a a whole bottle of absinthe, made me sick as fuck and I didn't see anything other than the usual demons and shadows.
>>
just drink pastis. same shit, less of a meme-level ABV, and literally a quarter the price.
>>
>>7267502
you don't get high off of nutmeg bruh, you become one with the nutmeg (for up to and sometimes exceeding 72 hours).
I wouldn't recommend it.
>>
>>7267502
Well that's another case, eat a nutmeg and nothing happens.

Grind and smoke a nutmeg and you'll go crazy. Crazy crazy, not party crazy.
>>
>>7267367
Only Americans treat it this way.

Absinthe is just another spirit over on/near the French/Swiss border where a lot of it is made, and it is a local thing too.

It gets watered down because of the high apv, and so that people can appreciate the louche.
>>
Tastes like shite, I'd rather drink bloody Chartreuse.
>>
Why does Disarono (sp?) taste so awful?
>>
>>7267367
From what I remember, the reason all those writers and artists loved it so much was because it was cheap for how alcoholic it was. Artists and writers are not wealthy so they had to be cheap because they were all alcoholics.

The reason its reputation is mostly American is because those were American writers and artists going to Europe and seeing/writing about a spirit that was unknown to them, as opposed to the Europeans that were already used to it by then.

some artists and writers are really wealthy. The vast majority are not or are making something like 30k.

Fuck this "new" economy
>>
>>7267367
"craft vodka" is still the fedora spirit I'm afraid. Absinthe is more like the nosering-pink hair highlights-advanced degree in the psychology of female artists in north africa beverage.
>>
I get that it's expensive everywhere outside of france but it tastes amazing. Is it just because americans don't like anise flavours?
>tfw cheapest authentic absinthe costs 180 usd in my country for 500ml

Same. Fuck STEM I should have majored in sculpture.

It's just a high-proof alcohol like anything else. Just to be clear, it is absolutely impossible to get psychoactive absinthe because the distillation process destroys whatever hallucinogenic properties >muh wormwood had (if any).
>>
>>7268806
Sorry to break it to you, but artists and writers are not wealthy.

Celebrity artists and writers can get pretty wealthy.
>>
ohlookitsthisthreadagain.jaypeg

I'm not going to argue with anyone about it but all commercial absinthe is neutered and no different than any other cordial. the real stuff is absolutely psychoactive in the ways described tho its nothing close to MDMA or LAD.

how do I know? I've made it, drank it and given it to other people that all had the same objective experience.

>the batch with kava kava in it was the best desudesudesudesu

>>7268958
you don't distill the wormwood, simp, you steep it in alcohol to release the chemicals that produce the effect
>>
>>7268958
The bad reputation is because the little ritual thing makes it go down smooth. This is reallllly bad if you are an alcoholic. You can get utterly DESTROYED on that shit and black out really easy. I got completely wasted at a hotel convention and woke up in a room with a Klingon. :|

So you don't gain any insight to the universe or shit like that. You just get fucked way up.

no stupid flames, taking it in shots or adding a mountain of sugar
Thujone does not give any sort of high. It just damages your brain, liver and kidney and can give convulsions. Anyone seeking out 'real' absinthe is a fucking idiot.

How hard is it to press ctrl+t and type the word you want to spell check? Typing out brackets would probably take me marginally longer.

nutmeg do contain potent psyoactive

it was first used to make MDMA

myristricin and elemicin, potent deliriants.

they are not fun tho


but thujone?

thujone isn't hallucinogenic, it a very mild gaba antagonist and it does almost nothing appart from making you feel 1% more weird and lowering your seizure level.
>>
>>7269076
>the real stuff is absolutely psychoactive

Historical recipes have the wormwood content well within modern legal limits.
Any non-alcoholic effects were the result of shitty bathtub distillers dying their swill with heavy metals and other poisons.
