Devoille "La Charlotte" Absinthe Superieure has been in my local liquor store for a month or so but I was a little concerned about trying it becuse it was so cheap( $29.95 just like on DUNY) but I figured what the hell, I can always sink it...

I was shocked at how cloudy and dense the louche is and the taste is just creamy and very good with that awesome wormwood bitterness that I love! I recommend sugar with this absinthe...

And the fairies are flying in this one!!! I mean like an army of green fairies in flying saucers!

I strongly recommend trying this one!

Try it from DUNY and if you don't like it I'll buy it from you. The only thing is I've lost track of the last 2 weeks cus of the stuff...

In case you haven't noticed, Smuttty, all of the best U.S absinthes have disappeared from the DUNY website.

Fuck Kamal.

And if you, please don't post the video, okay?

all of the best U.S absinthes


That's kind of an oxy-moran as far as I'm concerned... The only 2 US absinthes I like are Pacifique and Marteau (sorry)

St. George Absinthe Verte: Ick! What were they thinking!!!

Philadelphia Distilling "Vieux Carre" Absinthe Superieure: Bleeech!!! Vodka and herbs with no fairies whatsoever!

I've never tried the "Waters" one or Leopold Bros. Absinthe Verte yet though...

I do see what you mean though Abs, the "Meadow" and Waters" are gone and crappy Czeckerland shit is showing up...

In this economy and for $30 I'll take La Charlotte any day!

Butt by asking, you're actually suggestin' and speculatin'. The supply problems causing the outage of Leo Bros. are a known distributor issue which Todd posted about himself. Same with Tempus Fugit, and the whole line is now back in stock. You didn't bother to check before speculatin'- Marteau's out of stock currenty too, though it does have an ETA of October 30.

And while they still have one of the best selections for ordering in the US (Currently what think is decent: CLB, VP, Duplais, Mansinthe, Obsello, Jade NO, VC), I'll admit the de-listing of the DP absinthes is a major strike against them, especially if it's permanent.

Hard to argue with that.

Try it from DUNY and if you don't like it I'll buy it from you. The only thing is I've lost track of the last 2 weeks cus of the stuff...


Two weeks? Either you bought more than one bottle or you get tipsy after drinking only a bit.:) Wish I was easily tipsified...would save me a hell of a lot of money.
At least it's not La Fee NV.

It's possible that dropping the DP offerings was out of Kamal's hands, I don't know, but I did send him another e-mail, so I'll post back if I hear some sound reasoning. Kirk and Absomphe are right, if this was a voluntary decision I can't see any logic behind it. Considering the size of DUNY's catalogue, why upset a sizable portion of his absinthe customers by dropping them? It's not like a measly two brands were cluttering up the shelves, especially with the way they were selling out so consistently.
At least it's not La Fee NV.

At $30 a bottle, it was quite a few...

I just received my bottle of La Charlotte and I have to say I was certainly impressed with the quick shipping from DUNY! (2 days)

I haven't poured a glass yet. I'll save that for this upcoming weekend.

Anyway, I'm a little weary of this.

I opened the bottle to smell it and guess what?

NyQuil.

I poured a small amount into a shot glass to taste it straight and thought it to be bitter with a hard bite. (55%)

The color was ok- sort of on the yellow / green side.

I added a few drops of water and saw that it would louche very nicely.

So I'm not too excited about having this utilizing normal methods this weekend but we'll see.

And I promise that once I have a full glass, I'll refrain from using words like 'bomb' to describe it!
