When you see my tasting notes in the "Nose, Palate, Finish" format or very descriptive, that typically means I was tasting blind or at least under controlled conditions. If you see a short rambly note that says "This is awesome, A" or "This tastes like garbage, D+", then it is likely I did that tasting uncontrolled, e.g. in a bar at 1 am. Please adjust expectations accordingly.
