Volunteers sought to drink free whisky - no experience necessary

09 December, 2015

The University of Edinburgh is seeking 120 volunteers to drink whisky for a research project run in partnership with The Scotch Malt Whisky Society.

Participants will be required to take a written test about their personality traits, and then taste a range of whisky samples.

The research is being led by Dr Adam Moore of the university’s department of psychology.

The experiment, dubbed Project Flavour Behaviour, will take place at the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh on Wednesday, December 16.

No previous experience of whisky drinking is required.

Findings will be revealed over the course of 2016.

Wine is a liquid time capsule. Drinking older vintages not only recalls the weather conditions and winemaking styles of the past, it encourages us to reflect upon our own histories. Such reminiscence often inclines towards romanticised nostalgia. Especially after the second bottle. But looking back is a great way of learning about the future.
