As you’ll note, I’ve been especially quiet this month.
Why? Well… I had a particularly nasty head cold that was promptly followed by another head cold. I couldn’t smell much at all which directly impacts my sense of taste as well.
So, as a guy who tastes things and posts his tasting opinions on the Internet, what do I do when my senses of taste & smell are lessened by sickness?
I sit on the sidelines and softly wimper.
I can’t, in good conscience, weigh in on the aspects of any booze if I’m not at 100%. It just won’t work for me and it wouldn’t be fair to what I’m tasting. I was sitting here trying to come up with a fistful of analogies or similes, but none came to me so I’ll just say:
Sick tasters need to stay home and get better.
Of course, in my 9 to 5 job, if folks would stay home and get better instead of coming to work sick, I might not have been down for 97% of this month! So, I’ll rephrase:
Anyone and everyone who is sick needs to stay home until they’re better!
At any rate, I’m nearly back to 100% and have some tasty things lined up for reviews in April. Some clear booze, and some not so clear booze.
