These panels usually evaluate products on a go/no go basis. Training of new panelists in this setting often takes place in what can be described as an apprenticeship with the expert and the panel. e. lack of standardized training protocols, understanding individual’s sensitivities and anosmias, and the effect of panel influences among others. Training and maintenance protocols for panelists are what set sophisticated sensory programs apart from other programs. All companies want to produce the most consistent quality products possible.

The sources of geosmin contamination typically include the production water and/or the grain, fruit, and other raw material substrates from which the alcohol is initially derived. It is much easier to detect geosmin when alcohol content is diluted. One problem with dilution is that delicate flavor notes, particularly in some highly aged products, can be diluted to the point that they are lost or overwhelmed by other characteristics. This presents a problem that must be addressed on a case-by-case basis by the company in determining whether dilution is necessary and appropriate.

It is more common to find simple ‘go/no go’ comparison tests, using smaller panel sizes, often 3–6 panelists, for quality control evaluations. In these tests a sample is compared to a reference standard of the same product; the panel will then determine whether or not the sample is comparable to the reference sample. If it is determined to be comparable by the panel, the product is released for use. If it is not approved, then the decision as to what corrective action is required must be made. A key aspect of this type of determination is what is comparable.
