Well, I decided on the Sapin. Getting one of each was tempting, but at this time I can't justify the extra $120 (CAN) it would cost.
Besides, the regular Emile will always be available, at least I assume so. So I can always order it at a later date.

Ouch, my conscience has been pricked! I will email this weekend.

The Sapin is good, however I'm still awaiting an email from Ian......

Get one of each, and do your own comparison. If you're already on an "ordering binge", what's one more bottle?

you may end up liking the sapin better; i do...
especially if you are already familiar with chartreuse, although sapin has a more fresh, woodsy feeling from the pine-buds as opposed to the heady angelica dominance found in chartreuse...
you'll get the base idea of the 68, but with added complexity...

Well, I finally said screw it and have gone on an ordering binge. Two bottles from SC, now two from Markus (hopefully they'll come through customs), and I'm now going to order a bottle of Emile. I've never tried it before, neither the 45 nor the 68.
Should I spend the extra $10 and get the Sapin edition? I mean, I can probably order the regular stuff any time, but if I've never had it before, is it better to try the regular stuff first?
