Meaning of GUSTABLE

 
Webster's 1913 Dictionary
 
 Definition: 
  1. \Gust"a*ble\, a. [See {Gust}, v.] [Obs.]
    1. Capable of being tasted; tastable.
    
             This position informs us of a vulgar error, terming
             the gall bitter; whereas there is nothing gustable
             sweeter.                              --Harvey.
    
    2. Pleasant to the taste; toothsome; savory.
    
             A gustable thing, seen or smelt, excites the
             appetite, and affects the glands and parts of the
             mouth.                                --Derham.
    
    
  2. \Gust"a*ble\, n.
    Anything that can be tasted. [Obs.]
