The Scotch Malt Whisky Society is looking for volunteers to take personality test and sample rare whiskies

How would you like to sample rare whiskies in the name of scientific research?


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 21st May, 2016.

Project Flavour Behaviour is being carried out by The Scotch Malt Whisky Society this World Whisky Day (21/05), 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. These events will be taking place worldwide, including Washington D.C., Vancouver, London, Islay and Edinburgh.

Participants 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.
