Thanks to Bryan V. for pouring me a dram of this
Part of the fun of doing a mystery Advent Calendar made up of my own samples is me scrambling to figure out what I just drank. For Advent Day #19, we see that come to life.
You see when I review I try to throw out any preconceptions. This isn’t bragging or meant as an excuse why I suck at mysteries. It’s a habit I picked up. If all I have is the name and (sometimes) the abv., I can at least pretend like I’m less influenced than knowing everything.
But what happens after 19 days of mysteries? And additional mysteries from tastings? And pushing myself to be better at guessing?
Let’s see, shall we?
