YOU can’t get too much of a good thing..and after being inundated with offers for volunteer whisky tasters last year, Edinburgh University scientists have decided to do it again.

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society is looking for 75 volunteers to take a written personality test and taste whisky samples at its Project Flavour Behaviour event at its Edinburgh venue, 28 Queen Street, on Saturday, May 21.

Project Flavour Behaviour is being carried out by The Scotch Malt Whisky Society on World Whisky Day, in partnership with Dr Adam Moore from the University of Edinburgh’s Psychology Department.

The event is part of a series of secretive research experiments taking place around the world. TParticipants at the events, which are free, will take a written personality test and then taste several special samples of single malt 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 Flavour Behaviour experiment, which will be unveiled in more detail during 2016.
