An OK introduction to absinthe at an affordable price.
This was my first introduction to absinthe, as I suspect it is for a lot of BevMo shoppers given the price. I thought it was ok, and it certainly does the trick for any drink requiring a dash or two of absinthe. But then I sprang for a 200ml bottle of La Clandestine and the difference was like comparing a McDonalds hamburger to one cooked on your backyard grill. (I've since checked the online reviews at the Wormwood Society and members there give Grand Absente a 2.2 out of 5 and La Clandestine a 4.4 out of 5, so it's not just me.) So if you're a fan of anise and thought Grand Absente was ok, I highly recommend La Clandestine as your next bottle!

Great to add to gin and tonic water!
Haven't tried any other brand of absente but, why would I? The flavor is so unique. Here's how I enjoy it: Nolet's Silver Dry Gin, Fever-Tree tonic water, a splash of Grand Absenthe (about a 1/2 shot), and a twist of lime. Especially refreshing on a hot summer day. Try it!

delicious, but faux romanticism
Remember, this is an approximation of the original elixirs that had three times the thujone, so don't think you are going to turn in to a staggering VanGogh or Lautrec because it is 138 proof. Enjoy your drink, try the sugar cubes and water, or better yet, Dr P and a shot because you will get so many of the flavors of both to come out. Your tongue will go numb, you'll not really get a buzz you'd expect of 138 proof (it had almost no effect on me and I am a lightweight), but it is a flavor you don't get often. I'll keep mixing it with Dr p, and I really invite other to try a new drink without trying to sell it as a mind altering green fairy experience. Thanks BevMo for carrying it.

The Green Fairy & I are now friends.
Okay when I went to pick this up I was a little floored at how small the bottle is as it looks a lot bigger online but to my amazement I really liked this & before I knew it I had downed the whole little bottle & I feel wonderful, happy, amazing & awesome with the green fairy by my side. I put it in a shot glass laced with honey. This is my first time ever drinking this & please sir I want some more. As soon as I smelled I felt knew that smell from childhood as it smells like good & plenty candy. I am really glad I got this & can't wait to get it again.
