How would you like to sample rare whiskies and learn something about your self all in the name of scientific research?

120 volunteer whisky tasters are required to be guinea pigs at a secretive scientific research experiment in Edinburgh on Wednesday 16th December.

The Project Flavour Behaviour event is part of a research experiment being carried out by The Scotch Malt Whisky Society in partnership with Dr Adam Moore from the University of Edinburgh’s Psychology Department.

Participants at the event, which is free and takes place at the prestigious Royal College Of Surgeons of Edinburgh, will take a written test about personality traits and then taste special samples of whisky.

A previous knowledge of whisky is NOT required – an open mind and adventurous spirit is all you need.

The findings from the event will be analysed by Dr Moore and feed into the ongoing research experiment, which will be unveiled in more detail during 2016.
