Re: Hello SB Forum
Welcome, Danger. I agree that your website is impressive. For the life of me I am nuance challenged as I rarely .. almost never .. am able to pull out the "hints" of this and that from a given pour. I have no problem picking up on the dominant flavors and I know a well balanced taste as well as a pour lacking complexity & without balance. I purused some of your comments on many of my favorite pours and find them to be nicely stated expressions of what I get out of it as well. More often than not I can pick up on nuances once they are suggested.
I suspect my years of smoking many, many cigars has done some damage. I will look forward to your tasting notes for comparison.
Re: Hello SB Forum
First of all, I actually lolíd when I read your name. Second, thanks for the compliment. Iíve been working at Duke for the past year, so I think that absolutely counts as the triangle. I have always wondered about this: are people fashion conscious of their radiation patches? Or do you just slap on whatever they have at the plant?

This helps me to refine what I actually think about the flavors either through agreeing or disagreeing with their comments. So, I use othersí opinions as well, but I donít think thereís anything wrong with that.
