Halfway through the bottle of Kübler I decided to move on to the Pacifique.I musn't forget that once opened these do not spoil as does wine and so I may have many open at once.I immediately smelled,then tasted fennel.This was a much softer and more delicate aroma than the heavy anise of the Kübler. I have on order the Duplais Verte,Duplais Balance,Brevans Geiger,Mansithe and Jade 1901.Any suggestions about which order to taste them would be appreciated.

I'd suggest the following order: Mansinthe, Duplais Balance, Duplais Verte, Brevans, Jade.

After you've tasted them all in that order, don't forget to try them out of order (maybe not on the same night :twitchsmile: ). It can add a lot to your perspective.

What she said! I tasted a bunch recently (including all of the Jades) and had the Mansinthe last...it wasn't nearly as full or complex as the others so I didn't feel that I liked it, until waiting a week or two and trying it on it's own. It's much better when not drank directly after a Jade or A.O. Spare. :laugh:
