Today at the liquor store I saw some bottle with Arabic script on it and it said made with grapes and aniseed... Now I'm a big fan of absinthe and that is also flavored with aniseed so I grabbed it. It's called Arak and you cut it with water and it turns white, like some absinthes do. The taste is very similar to sweeter absinthes that don't have much bitter wormwood taste, but it's not overly sweet look like Absente brand. It is sweet, but in the way that wine or brandy is "grape sweet" if that makes sense. Anyhow I'm really enjoying it and happy to have found it since most liquor stores in my neighborhood don't have any absinthe, and even when I do find it here in USA it's always that Absente brand which isn't bad but I prefer absinthe that isn't so sweet and also you cannot taste any bitter wormwood in Absente. However there are several brands of arak on the shelf, so I'm looking forward to trying them!
