A Closer Look At Lucid Absinthe

I recently had the opportunity to make a comparison test of Lucid Absinthe against a few other popular brands of absinthe at a recent gathering of bartenders in the city that I live in. To be honest, I was a little skeptical to begin with, because I had already read some reviews that had in fact rated it rather poorly for containing alcohol that was derived from fermented sugar beets for one thing.

To start with I never have been able to tell the difference between alcohol that is derived from fermented sugar beets and alcohol that is derived from any other fermented source for that matter. The best Russian vodkas are made from fermented potatoes aren't they?

Everyone was given a few glasses containing the various brands of absinthe along with a small glass containing the Lucid Absinthe and we all began to look them all over. They all ranged in different shades of green with the Lucid Absinthe being one of the lighter shades.

This was fine with me, because I have always assumed that the darker green absinthes were that way due to added artificial coloring. Just as in all of the glasses of absinthe arrayed out before me the Lucid Absinthe had a fine film of aromatic oils floating on its surface.

A few of the other tasters present made some noise about there not being any thujone in the Lucid Absinthe but as far as I was concerned I could just as well do with out it as I am a lot more careful than I used to be with regards to what I ingest into my system. Frankly I preferred the flavor of the Lucid Absinthe above all others and found it to be tasting some what lighter with regards to the anise.
