One downside to the modern information age is that the things that are highlighted by the media tend to get repeated over and over again, creating a demand for a product not based on its own merits but on the proficiency of the parent company's public relations department.

Staff members find spots for themselves and begin to evaluate each selection, writing their observations down on a worksheet I provide. They begin with sight: the liquid's color, its viscosity or lack thereof, the "legs" that run down the sides of the taster after swirling.

They move on to evaluating the "nose" of the liquid in my opinion, the most important part of the process. Drawing on the vast databank of aromas stored in the human brain, they try to identify any and all associations.

Next, staffers take their first sip of the liquid and evaluate the palate. The same associations from the nose are usually repeated, along with some additional flavors or intensities. And finally, after a good long slow exhale, the finish. Without knowing what type of spirit, what brand, price, prestige, age or anything else, staffers must rate their enjoyment of the selection on a scale of 1 to 10. And they have to make the best possible guess as to what the selection actually is, being as specific as possible with respect to type, brand and bottling.

As fun as this process is for me, trying to embarrass my staff is not the point. One of the first times I took a similar blind tasting, I rated as the top selection a fancy, expensive, celebrity endorsed, contract distilled tequila that had I been asked about it beforehand, I would have said that I hated it.

I never tell my staff what is in the bottles, not a theme or a hint or anything. Sometimes, I stick with one category, such as bourbon, and sometimes I mix everything up.

There is a vast and amazing world of adult beverages to choose from, and it is my aim not only to help you spend your hard earned money wisely, but also to help you achieve maximum enjoyment for each dollar spent.

As a training tool, this exercise forces my staff to focus solely on the individual characteristics of the mystery liquid contained in their glass. Over time, they have been getting better at using deductive reasoning to reach an accurate conclusion. The big, embarrassing mistakes are becoming rarer and rarer, and this intimate knowledge of all the individual spirits on our bar wall helps us to pair the right product with the right customer.

oblige. Challenge your preconceived notions. Dare to disagree with the whiskey books and bloggers. Spend your money based on your actual preferences instead of who spent the most money on advertising campaigns.

So, here is my challenge to you, dear reader. Try this on your own. If you have a home bar stocked well enough to cause some confusion, have a friend pick out three or four bottles and pour an ounce or so of each into numbered glasses while you're out of the room.

Staffers also are becoming more aware of the power of ratings and marketing. Just last week, the majority of my staff rated a mass produced $20 bottle of bourbon quite a bit higher than an ultra Mens Adidas Y3 Trainers Sale hard to get blogosphere darling costing more than three times as much.

My only consolation was the spirit I rated second best was from a small, virtually unknown family distillery with a century of experience, a spirit I am still madly in love with to this day.

Take my word for it: This task is a very, very difficult one and for professional bartenders who take a huge amount of pride in their craft, a potentially embarrassing one, too. No one wants to mistake Irish whiskey for rum but, believe it or not, it has happened. Something similar would most likely happen to the casual drinker in the same situation.

About once a month, columnist T. Duncan Mitchell presents his Chapel Tavern staff with unlabeled bottles to taste blind and identify. Next to the numbered bottles, I place an appropriate number of small taster glasses, essentially 8 ounce wine glasses designed for official wine competitions and tastings.
