absinthe- U.S. customs

Apologies if this is the wrong board. I was just reading that New Yorker article about absinthe, and as luck would have it will be in Paris soon. I am a bit unclear about buying a bottle of it though (and imagine how much more unclear I would be having had some): so, it's legal to purchase the bottle in France, and legal to bring it back to the U.S., but "sometimes" it can be seized by customs? I don't really want to invest $$$ in a good bottle which will just be confiscated. Any thoughts or experiences on this?

Thanks...
