First comment​:raised_hands:t3::sweat_smile: 30 sample sets wow! And it’s not April fools? :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::pray:


30!? Wow now I have to taste even more this month…my wife kills me :laughing:


The credit goes to Angus! :heart:


Oh my, this is amazing! Time to bust out some more samples.


Thank god my wife is on a business trip for most of April :joy:


Dann kann es ja endlich am Ostermontag nach der langen Fastenzeit wieder losgehen! @Oliver ,da hast du echt eine schöne monatliche Reihe gestartet :slight_smile:


Der Enmore uhd der Clarendon stehen ganz oben auf meiner Wunschliste. Da werde ich mich diesen Monatliche mehr ins Zeug legen müssen


Didnt know about Sponge Rum
Hope to try this Next month :wink:


Yay another lottery :partying_face: maybe this time I will be the lucky one!
Oliver, you know, we are getting seriously used to this kind of alcohol/gambling combo :joy:.


30 sets sounds like a fair chance for everybody, great stuff! :star_struck:


Hey, I know there already were discussions about the fairness of (re-)posting tastings with photos added while the original intention was probably to mainly add new tastings with photos which really happened at that time. Now they are of course a few shades in exploiting that system. Probably the most dubious is making a gallery of all your samples and bottles (even unopened) and posting them all within a month without having really tasted them at that time. Perfect fairness does not exist, I know, but this is…I don’t know… “not so cool”. Any idea on how to create more fairness?


Adding text as a must will avoid this.
Anyway I think posting a testing without written notes is not really interesting. Just a quote ? Who will be interested if you cannot argue your x.x/10 ?

But is it a real problem? As when the dude opens the bottle/sample he will do the proper job, just later.


I don’t care about the content of these tastings at all, but about the dubious lottery entries and how they effect everyone’s chances.


Warum erhöhen sich meine Tickets nicht mehr? Müsste eigentlich schon mind. 2 mehr haben?
