Those of you East Coast USA who've ordered from here, how long does it typically take? I placed an order a full two weeks ago. DHL tracking has shown "The shipment is being transported to the destination country" since December 1. I usually shop at LdF, many orders over the years, and have never had an order take more than five business days to get here, sometimes less- even at this time of year. I'm just beginning to wonder if this is normal for RueVerte.

Perhaps you should contact RueVerte about where your order is rather than asking a forum of drunks how long it takes.

Just a thought.

Been there, done that. It's good. There are other good things out there. I want them too.

I would, but there's still generally better stuff available from Europe, actually cheaper and with free shipping (with minimum purchase) from all the major vendors.

OCvertDe: just email Antoine and ask!

There is not an absinthe on the market that is better than what is produced in New York at Delaware Phoenix.
I've never had a European absinthe that even comes close.

Corrected to avoid any confusion. This is your own perception Kirk, not everyone's perception, though the Delaware products are very nice, I like them, very refined feminine absinthes, I don't know of anyone who dislike them.

RV may have forgotten about your order since they're real busy trippin' balz on that hi-thoughjone absinth they sell.

I can assure you that Antoine does not not hype the thuyone bullshit, he always promotes, publicly and personally, well crafted absinthes.

Look at his 2010 selection, any crap here?
http://www.rueverte.com/selections.php?sid=43

Same here: http://www.rueverte.com/bar_de_reve.php

Ok he also sells xitsinths, but he's running a business. go to any wine shop, even the top ones, and you'll find xitwines too.

I would never intend to imply that someone is hyping chop.gif just because they advertise that an absinthe is "characterized by a bitter taste and a level in chop.gif that is as high as it is authorised." I realize that's just making a factual statement.

And I would never insinuate that just because the description of one 'sinth lets people know that "Another 'bitter' version is available. Its alcohol level is lower (60°) but its chop.gif level reaches 35 mg/l. (maximum level authorised)" doesn't mean to imply that chop.gif is relevant.

And, of course, when absinthe pipes (!?!) are described as bringing "freshness and strong sensations !" that only refers to alcohol.

I do apologize for any misunderstandings.

Crap? No.

Utter fucking bullshit nonsense? Yes!

On both lists.

I don't think you've tasted the new Oliva Tibro, the one made by Jacob, not by the previous maker.

Pro', you're right on that one, thanks for sending me the matching link.
I think it's an old description from the early RV days, Antoine will probably change it after reading that topic.
