The original shit was a milky white puss colored liquid with the consistency of a light syrup. My uncle had a small bottle from France that was old back then. It was made with something called “Wormwood” that colud lead to madness after a very brief exposure. I tried to research it about 10 years ago but came up almost empty. Forgot all about it till this post. I doubt this recent Oz release is as dangerous as the original.

storm shadow is right. It’s a milky looking liquer made form wormwood. They used to make something called an absynthe drip with it-you use a short slotted spoon (they still sell these for pernod drip), and basically end up pouring the liquor into water, pouring it thru the sugar cube. Wormwood contains atrophine, which can be some pretty nasty stuff, so use a little common sense…

The real absynth was made in the late 1900’s with something called “wormwood” (as stated earlier). Wormwood is a black mold that grows on damp corn crops. It is a strong hulucinegene (cant spell, it makes you trip!). It is thought that a bad case of wormwood in europes corn crops may have started the saleam witch trials in the middle ages or something! They didnt like it when everyone started tripping out after they ate the bread which was made from the corn with the wormwood on!
But unfortunatly the absynth of today does not contain any wormwood! Sorry! Its just very strong in alcohol and tastes vile!

It is, disgusting, almost like drinking pure ethanol…
It is fabled to have hallucinagenic properties but I can never drink enough of the vile stuff to find out!

Absente, the new version of absynthe does not contain wormwood. You can still buy absynthe, with wormwood, in several locations around the world (fiji being one of those locations)….
