I have enough volunteers to make up a good tasting panel.
I have selected the whiskeys we will be tasting.
Time to say a few words about how this blind tasting business will be conducted.
We will taste five whiskeys. Four of the five will be “bottom shelf” and one will be a premium bourbon from my collection. The whiskeys will be numbered one to five and the tasters won’t be told what each one is until we have tasted and discussed all five.
We will consider the standard things: appearance, nose, taste, and finish. We will take notes and discuss our impressions. We will each rate the whiskeys on a simple scale of 1 to 10. When it’s all said and done, I will reveal which whiskey was which. And, of course, I’ll share the outcome with you guys.
