Which brand would you suggest?
It really depends on what you are looking for. The King of Spirits GOLD has the traditional formulation including the 100mg of thujone, thus ensuring you get the full effects of absinthe. However, it is more bitter. The Staroplezenecky and Red Absinthe's have a less bitter, more moderate taste but only have 10mg of thujone in them.

I saw Johnny Depp in From Hell. How do I take absinthe that way?
In the famous scene, an absinthe spoon and a glass of absinthe is used. The experience can be copied by dipping your sugar cube in the absinthe, setting it alight and letting the sugar drip into the absinthe through the specially constructed vents in the absinthe spoon.
