Finally Tasted Absinthe - Yuck

About 7 bucks at Bevmo: “Absente, Absinthe Refined’, 110 proof, 100 ml (but I found it at the checkout stand, so do not know if it is a regular stock item). It has a strong herbal component (reminds me of Ricola cough drops), and overpowering licorice taste (I hate licorice). It has only just become legal to import it into the US, and I was really curious so I tried it. Ewww… I guess it would be valuable in mixed drinks (but I am not a big fan of sweet mixed drinks), or for medicinal uses.
