That stuff is too sweet for my taste.. You swedes sure seemed to love it on Ass03 though. Fuckings to Dr.ReedDoctor Richards / Astianpesuainevalo for forcing me to drink it (yes, he really had to twist my arm) at 4 in the morning, making the hangover on saturday even worse. :((

Never tried it. Prefer beer or a nice red wine anyway. But absinthe rulez when it comes to spirits :) And cheap vodka too.

50% = export.
Alko in finland = 40%:ish minttu.

Minttu = GOD.

Hmm, tried salmiakki and tasted very good, what's the difference between it and minttu?

Minttu's biggest advantage is cause its so sweet the bottle will eventually be glued tight to your hand. Guess thats why the swedes at asm enjoy it so much, after several hours of boozing in a foreign city, it doesnt matter if they find themselves naked, with no cash in a dark alley, the bottle is still there providing its comfort.

yes I noticed, but it sucked when a girl wanted to shake my hand

If I'm not mistaken I recall a few of the Hype-crew people on the ferry back home to Sweden with lots of Minttu as well, smelled kind of strange in their cabin.. :)
