A Scottish psychologist is looking for subjects to participate in a free Adams Morgan whisky tasting, for science.

Dr. Adam Moore of the University of Edinburgh’s Psychology Department is teaming up with Scotland’s Scotch Malt Whisky Society for the “Project Flavour Behaviour Experiment” at Jack Rose Dining Saloon (2007 18th St. NW).

Participants are expected to take a written test on personality traits before trying “special” whisky on Saturday, May 21, from 3 to 5 p.m., according to the event’s website. Volunteers don’t need a knowledge of the distilled liquor to take part, but rather an “open mind and adventurous spirit,” the webpage adds.

“Sample rare whiskies and learn something about yourself in the name of scientific research by being a guinea pig in a secretive scientific research experiment,” the website says. “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 later this year.”

Interested volunteers can register online.
