Our Next Tasting: Hometown Surprises

The Society for those who share a passion for single malt whisky in Northwest Ohio.


The Black Swamp Single Malt Society was formed in June 2010 by a group of individuals with the sole purpose of providing a regular and formalized venue for individuals who have a passion for single malts to gather together to share, enjoy, explore, enrich, and expand their knowledge and familiarity with the single malt whiskies of the world (and on rare occasions other fine spirits).

Membership in the Society is limited and to become a member an individual must be sponsored by a current member.  A link for Information on becoming a member is provided below.

  • Greetings, all,

    We're set to roll with our meeting & tasting tomorrow night! Our hostess Linda has chosen a theme in honor of this year's mid-term elections: Nominate Your Third-Party Candidate! She further explained that the first party is the distiller, second party is the independent bottler, and third is our own humble Black Swamp Society. (Her original theme was going to be Evening with the Virgins, but some of the product she had in mind was not yet available. Dammit! Can't WAIT to revisit that one!)

    Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow evening at Ben's.



  • BSMMS Welcomes Its Newest Alternate Member - Yixing Chen The Black Swamp Single Malt Society is pleased to welcome its newest alternate member Yixing Chen.  Chen is widening his appreciation of the finer things in life.  Chen is already a beer enthusiast and a skilled brewer (though we have yet to verfiy this since he has yet to provide us with any samples).  With a well developed palate for beer, he brings an interesting perspective to our group's tasting. So join me in extending a hearty fàilte to Chen, our newest member.

  • Twentieth Tasting: Hometown Surprise Our Twentieth Tasting will be hosted by Tim.  His theme for the evening is Hometown Surprises: examples of great single malt scotches available at Flick's and other local liquor stores. You'll be wanting to hop in the car to make sure you snag these.

  • Nineteenth Tasting - Best of the Bunch - 8.20.2013 Our 19th tasting will revisit six whiskies from the previous18 tastings that based on the results of members' voting represent what they felt were the best of the bunch.  Once is never enough for a great whisky so we'll be giving some of our favorites another taste and seeing what we think of them all over again.  A great way to spend an evening!

Share Your Thoughts and Finds

Have you had a whisky and cigar recently that you thought went really well together?  Or have you tried a new whisky?  Why not send in a review or write up about them and share them with our readers.  People who appreciate good whisky are always looking for new ones to try.  Help support your Society and the whisky industry by sharing your "finds" with others.

What's Best About Our Club?

We are a group of individuals who share a common interest and passion - Single Malt Whiksy.  Among our group are people who have just discovered the joys of single malt whiskies to those who experienced connoisseurs who are extremely knowledgeable.  We meet to sample and learn about different single malts or to revisit previously tasted bottles.  Nothing makes for more enjoyable evening then sitting down with a group of people who share your passion and drinking and talking about it.  While our meetings expand our knowledge and appreciation, they aren't stuffy as the title  Society might make you think.  We meet at various members' homes and other social gathering places and enjoy fantastic evenings tasting different single malts and having great conversations (and whenever possible great cigars as well).
