A Society of Individuals Who Share a Passion for Single Malt Whisky.


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).

  • 37th Tasting: October 30th 2016: Old Enough to Drink - 21 Year Olds In our continuing exploration of older whiskies, our 37th tasting will explore four 21 year old whiskies.  Once you've tasted the evening's bottles, you'll have a much better appreciation of the phrase "old enough to drink." The tasting will be held at our old and cherished haunt, The Pool House at 7 p.m..  Be sure to reserve your spot to help us in planning and setting up for this memorable evening.

  • 36th Tasting - Honey I'm Home Re-Scheduled for 9-11-16 After an evening enjoying 30+ year old whiskies at our 35th tasting, the title of our 36th tasting is "Honey, I'm Home" and will feature whiskies with honey notes paired with different types of honeys.  Our tasting will be held at our new home away from home in Maumee.  As an amateur honey enthusiast, Tim's tasting will pair single malts that exhibit honey notes either in their nose or palate with different types of honeys.  It's sure to be a sweet evening for all in attendance.

  • 35th Tasting Coming Up in June: Halfway to Retirement We're all getting older and so are the whiskies we'll be tasting in June.  Our 35th Tasting will definitely be a special tasting as we crack the 30 year age mark with the whiskies we'll tasting that evening.  We'll also be revisiting our reserves (what's left of them) of the whiskies aged in Grand Cru class casks from France from the tasting Mike did a long while ago.  So mark your calendars for our next tasting on June 12th at Ken's.

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).
