Visual Description:  Wine taster insulting the vintner.

RAWRO  =  ARROW,  PEMTT  =  TEMPT,  ELUSUF  =  USEFUL,  TENNIY  =  NINETY   —   Giving us:  AROTEPUSNIT

Clue/Question:  His comments about the wine were . . .

Answer:  IN POUR TASTE

(I  liked it!  All the clue words were tried and true.  Which means that none of them were new.  None were all that difficult, either.  The great thing about today’s Jumble is the answer letter layout.  Absolutely nothing is given away here!  I even had to think for a bit to get the answer.  I wouldn’t call this one a gimme.  I bet that it stumped more than a few of you.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    UNC- I dont want to say this in POOR taste, but you might be wrong. I believe we have seen NINETY on a few occassions, but I could be wrong. Wimpy

    YUR:

    A personal note for the 10/18 Jumble spoiler – the word DOOZY came into being from its original form DUESY as it related to the Duesenberg automobiles made first in Iowa and then Indiana by brothers Frederick and August Dueseberg from 1913 to 1937. “That’s a real Duesy” was a term that came to mean sheer elegance and style and was later corrupted by use and spelling to its current status.

    Just for your info.
