Do you mean to imply that you "Spit
" after you taste? How far the British Empire has fallen.
My mother taught me to swallow whenever I put someting edible or potable in my mouth and not to spit it out. You must have missed that lesson.
Honestly, I really can't persuade myself to rinse/spit while doing a tasting. It seems like such a waste, especially considering what we have to pay for the ruddy stuff over here. So I stand by my "Blotto" comment and look forward to you joining JJ and myself as we drink for effect.
