Name that scotch: Colorimetric recognition of aldehydes and ketones. Vodka tastes different from brandy, and connoisseurs can distinguish among different brands of whiskeys. The flavors of spirits result from a complex bouquet of volatile compounds. New colorimetric sensor arrays on disposable test-strips read by hand-held devices allow for their rapid, inexpensive, and sensitive identification by their chemical 'fingerprints'. They are based on novel sensor arrays that detect and differentiate among a diverse range of aldehydes and ketones. Source 3q.
I like to have the occasional taste of bourbon and I like rum as well. I'll also have a glass of port wine now and again with dinner. I am not a lover of scotch though and I've lost my taste for vodka. When I cook I'll often use wine or beer, but other than port I'm not a wine drinker and when I drink beer my preference is s dopplebock or dunkel from Bavaria or Austria.
