    Default Critics rubbish Marilyn Manson's absinthe

    Marilyn Manson’s foray into the beverage world with his own brand of absinthe has been panned by critics, who compared the drink’s odour to sewage water.

    ‘Mansinthe’ was tested by a panel at gourmet food website Epicurious.com, whose biggest complaint was the smell of the beverage, which come compared to sewage water , swamp mud and rubbing alcohol. One taster says "If a smell could speak, this absinthe is saying: 'Do not touch.'"

    Absinthe is illegal in the US, with Manson’s brand produced in Switzerland. The label on the bottle is a self-portrait of Manson as an old man.

    If the stuff is illegal in the US, is there a watered down version available? They had several bottles in the liquor stores in Ocean City just this past fall.

    Absinthe just became legal recently. There have been "Absinthe" flavored liquors available for a while, but they are not the real stuff. I had it when I was out of the country and it is expensive and not very tasty. I got a headache and no hallucinogenic experience from it at all.

    Wasn't there a thread about this a while back that said, if you drank too much of the stuff it could actually kill you?

    He's so creative. I imagine it tastes like ass, talcum powder, piss and dirty toe nails. Manson freaks me out.

    Absinthe with a picture of Marilyn Manson as an old man? Well, that's a tempting product!

    We have a bottle that a friend brought back to us from Europe. It's bright green and sitting on our counter.

    I smuggled in a bottle of real absinthe from Prague many years ago. It ain't going to make you hallucinate but it will definitely fuck you up in short order. As for Manson, fat old douchebag suffices.
