Absente Absinthe

DavidPalmer | Nov 18, 201107:29 AM

I know next to nothing about absinthe in general, but I saw this bottle (the one with Van Gogh on the box) and decided what the hell. The little research I did told me since 2009 this brand has used the real wormwood since it was legalized that year in the States and not the Southern wormwood.

Is this true, and do people consider this absinthe a joke? I didn't care for it all that much the first time around but liked it somewhat better on the second try.
