Edward it is not partiality that i would accuse you of, but subtlety . . .

To further amplify the complex, intricate nature of Neisson Blanc . . .

try it like:

Build (with cracked/crushed ice, in a pint glass)
2 Shots Neisson Blanc
1 Shot Pango (or St Germain)
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
Top up with sparkling wine ( i use Cava. . . i like the citrus nuance.)

enjoy . . .

That sounds like something I'll have to try. Soon.

Thanks forrest, we actually have all the ingredients for that one (even the Cristalino). We'll have to make some soon.

I broke the seal on my first bottle of Depaz last night, and I have to agree with JMac. My first impression was "this is tequila!" I need to try it in a Ti Punch, I wasn't really excited about it over ice.

*Of course the Depaz followed a glass of El Dorado 15 (my first taste of that as well), so in fairness to Depaz, my taste buds could have been expecting too much.

Yes, I just tried it myself and it is all tequila (with a sweeter aftertaste). Pretty nice - I actually liked it neat and will try to introduce a couple of my tequila friends to it.

I bought the package that also had the Depaz Sugar Cane Syrup with it.

I am drinking Depaz tonight. Ti punches... Wow, I am a happy man. The 750ml; is being "boxed" with a free cane Depaz syrup for the holidays. That is a pretty good deal and it makes a great drink.

From the other thread (ceramic Appleton), I checked a UK merchant I thought I might have seen that before (no ceramic Appleton) but I did happen to notice this bottle of Depaz rhum (1950):



Anybody tried this or other vintaged varieties?
