Lucid Absinthe is actually sweet enough and subdued in its anise taste to the point where pouring the water over a sugar cube is really not needed, unless you really like things sweet.
This isn't the best absinthe I've tried (and I've had many), but it's the real thing, above average, and certainly worth trying at least once.
Drink This: if you want to try a true absinthe full of the wonderful, mouth-numbing wormwood. And if you can brave it, after a couple drinks the wormwood's distinct "buzz" (aka. receptor blocking) does make itself known.
Don't Drink This: if you don't like fennel or anise, you know, the flavors associated with black licorice? Because that is what this tastes like.
