In Jim Murray’s pro notes for the drumguish, (which were harsh) he mentioned something about the fourth “tasting wave” Can you guys talk a bit more about what you would consider the distinct elements of the taste? Is this concept standard in the tasting world, or is it one of Mr. Murray’s, er, fanciful creations?
One thing I’ve noticed about your scoring is that it is very difficult to predict, based on your commentaries during the tasting portion of the show where you’re going to land with a score. The Deanston in particular, given the interest you showed in its enigmatic quality, I expected you to score easily a full point higher than you did. I understand the wet taste really affected your judgment, but shouldn’t you score based on the better of the two tastes, not the worst, since you go to the trouble of giving an opinion on which is better. This would probably give someone just glancing at your scores a better concept of your thoughts concerning a particular dram.
And no dumb bastard ever won a war by drinking Scotch for his country. He won it by making the other poor dumb bastard drink Scotch for his country.
