Epicurious, a top notch "foodie" blog, has recently run some taste tests on three new absinthes - Kubler, lucid and Mansinthe (sic). We recently reviewed lucid ourselves, and should have a Kubler review up soon. But, from the sound of it, we will probably stay away from Mansinthe, Marilyn Manson's named brand of absinthe. We don't generally run to the nearest source of "swamp water".

Absinthe Taste Test Part 1: Lucid - Their review panel opinions of lucid seems to match up pretty well with ours, if maybe even a little harsher (not sure we used "armpit" in our description!). But the end result of "it's going to have to improve its flavor to stay on top" is right in line with our thinking. Of course, it was only "on top" because it was the only one available at the time.

Absinthe Taste Test Part 2: Kubler - while we haven't written up an official review here at InAbsinthia, our feelings very much are, once again, right in line with the epicurious review panel. A very nice, smooth, blanche, we really have enjoyed it, especially at the price.

Absinthe Taste Test Part 3: Mansinthe (Marilyn Manson Absinthe) - the stuff sounds bad, doesn't it? Reminds us of humorist H. Allen Smith's reaction to tasting his first American beer - "Put it back in the horse!"
