Sensorial activities to refine each sense are an important part of Montessori education. I have lots of Montessori sensorial resources here: Montessori Sensorial Activities.
Following are some ideas from around the blogosphere for preparing and presenting Montessori tasting activities.

Traditional Montessori Tasting Bottles
Montessori Primary Guide Has directions and lesson presentations for traditional Montessori tasting bottles.
Montessori Services has eye droppers and other materials for assembling tasting bottles and activities.
Montessori-Inspired Tasting Activities
The Wonder Years didn’t do a matching activity but had a tasting activity using bowls of flavored water.
In his sensory activities post at 1+1+1=1, John Bowman didn’t use matching tasting bottles, but used unsweetened chocolate, salt, sugar, and a lemon to help children identify the four basic tastes.
Leptir has an activity tasting dried fruits.
