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.

  • NEXT TASTING: OCT. 21! Our next gathering of the Society will be Tuesday, Oct. 21 when we meet at Mark's home to enjoy an evening he has named "Value for the Dollar." We will taste whiskies that are both pleasant on the palate and easy on the pocketbook. Every whisky Mark has lined up for the evening is less than 50 bucks a bottle! I wonder if they're still accepting nominations for that Nobel Economics thingie...

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).
