Serious Eats: Talk
A Question of Honesty
Someone gives you a bottle of wine as a gift. They say, "This is a wine we really enjoyed. Hope you enjoy it too. Let us know what you think." You try it and think it is not good at all. What do you say? "Yes that was really good! Loved it." Or are you honest and tell them that it was not really to your taste. (Aside: I lied and now I get this terrible wine as a gift on many occasions. They even told other friends of mine that it is one of my favourites so the lie lives on.) Your thoughts please.
