Talk about piss-poor timing. I wanted to throw some new things into the mix so ordered K53 and Montmartre from Markus, the day before the new Jade- the only REAL Burnt™ absinthe was released and a week before he started using courier. That was Feb 22, and so far it's a no-show. I knew there were risks, but had recently seen a success story by someone with a similar order, and you know, "...it'll never happen to me".

To make matters worse, I came home last week to a package on the doorstep only to discover it had been mis-delivered and was supposed to go to another address. It took three phone calls and as many days before it was gone off my doorstep(I was told to write "misdelivered" on it and leave it outside). On the fourth day, I opened the door to find an employee of said agency standing on my steps looking around the stoop. Our conversation:

"Did you have a mis-delivered package?"
"Yeah, four days ago, it was gone when I came home yesterday, I assumed you guys had picked it up"
"Do you know where it was supposed to go?"
"WHAT?!"
...and he walks back to his truck. If I worked with that guy, I'd go "postal", too.

I'm quite sure someone somewhere is enjoying my shipment. So I'm diligently looking for a noob to post the topic:
"New to absinthe...strange package on my doorstep"

I re-iterate: Crappity, crap, crap.

It's better to have a package not show up at all than to receive an empty box sealed with US Customs tape.

Very true. Still a bummer, though.

yup, and I'm off for the next three nights, sans absinthe. I was counting on something to experiment with.

In that case, try this timeless classic:

1. Apply 1 tube Coghlan's Fire Paste to nether regions.
2. Put on a baggy pair of pants.
3. Stuff pants with assorted raw meat products.
4. Tie off each pant leg at the ankle.
5. Insert 1 hungry, rabid badger.
6. Insert 1 hungry, rabid badger (de-clawed)
7. Insert 1 lit M-80.
8. Quickly sinch belt.
9. Immediately throw yourself down a flight of stairs while whistling "Stars and Stripes Forever"
10. Enjoy!

Thanks for being a wonderful audience but it was not really intended to be funny.

A box that simply hasn't shown up provides a glimmer of hope. Perhaps, it's just held up in the mail or it may have been returned to the seller for some reason. In either case, you should still receive your bottles.

On the other hand, if Customs has the bottles.....

I'm still hanging on to that glimmer.

And in the "What comes around, goes around..." category: Many years ago in a previous life, I was deployed for a short period of time with U.S. Customs inspecting incoming international containers. In all honesty, we used to send packages back out wrapped up like Xmas presents with that bright green tape.

I had two large shipments show up after I thought all hope was lost. They were all taped with green US Customs tape and not a bottle was missing.

That's why I order from Kreblakistan. Much better customer service.

What should we do for the future? Oh, I don't know. Drive around, have fun, a few kids and we can figure out the future after HOLY SHIT I'M 38 YEARS OLD

Yes, and if your stuff gets confiscated, they kidnap you and remove your head with a dull knife to avoid being implicated in any illegal activity.
