Re: Reviews are Almost Worthless...
while palates and discriptive words are greatly varied, most scents/tastes should remain constant, given that their source doesn't change. That is to say that if one picks up a chemical taste/smell in something then finds it again in something else they should describe it in the same way. The problem with most flavor/smell reviews is that no one bothers to adhere to a standard, or at least consistantly apply the same term to the same taste/smell, they simply apply different terms each time as they come to mind.
