On Friday at my workplace, there was a very classy competition to determine the best bourbon and cola pre-mixed drink available. Our chief scientist Martin purchased (for the company) 6 different types of bourbon + cola and designed a blind taste test.
7 participants drank and ranked and also guessed the brands. It was all kind of random and I believe the outcome was that people came out liking the bourbon they thought they liked and also came out drunk. I participated as an impartial judge since the smell of bourbon reminds me of a Darwin nightclubs as they are closing for the night - yuck! I drank about 12 sips (2 of each).
