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 for the sole purpose of providing a regular and formalized venue for those who have a passion for single malts to gather together to share, enjoy, explore, enrich, and expand their knowledge and familiarity of the single malt whiskies of the world (and on rare occasions other fine spirits).

  • 55th Tasting Theme is Witness Protection Our 55th Tasting theme will have you scratching your heads, wondering what's this all about, and anxiously waiting for the big reveal (kind of like what's happening in the news right now).  Here's what we know:Peter Dawson, Alexander Bonthorn, and Francis Swanson will all be joining us for this evening; however, we cannot share where they have been of late.  All 46% with one little brother at 43% will also be present.  Peat from Orkney, spicy cocoa, minerals and more will be there as well.  Beware of the crème brûlée and butterscotch as they attack.So mark your calendars for October 20th at 7 p.m. and be at Ben ...

  • 54th Tasting: Latest Editions is Theme for August's Tasting With all the new distillery openings and new expressions it's definitely not to hard to find something new to try and to lose sight of some of the old favorites.  And it is exactly those two facts that make our 54th Tasting sure to be a "crowd pleaser" as we will be tasting some whiskies that many us may be familiar with or think we know but may not realize change on a regular basis.   As single malt enthusiasts we are blessed to be living in a time when scotch is riding a wave of renewed interest and growth, but while we explore new whiskies, this tasting will remind us not to forget our "old drams."

What's Best About Our Club?

We are a group of individuals who share a common interest and passion - Single Malt Whisky.  Among our group are people who have just discovered the joys of single malt whiskies as well as experienced connoisseurs who are extremely knowledgeable.  We meet to sample and learn about different single malts or to revisit previously tasted bottles of favorites.  Nothing makes for a more enjoyable evening then sitting down with a group of people who love drinking and talking about whisky.  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).
