sorry, I wasn't clear.
Yes, if you are a quality taster, winemaker/brewer/distiller/critic you are suppossed to do the swish and spit.
I could have written that more clearly. I just meant that the very nature of the industry obviously hinges on not being a teetotaler. It's kind of like the ice cream taster complaining of high cholesterol. I don't really want to name the publication, but I used to work for a magazine predicated on things not good for you per se, but enjoyable. Anyway, one high level member of staff didn't partake. It's kind of silly when you think about, as partaking is implicict with some jobs.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.
