  • You got it - the terms are loosely thrown around and you're supposed to use your best judgment.That's not entirely true I guess - you can do a Google search and find various dictionaries or texts and there's even an aroma wheel that's supposed to give you terms to use for certain smells, but in the end, the terminology to describe taste is prett...
