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).

  • Get Ready for a Virtual Road Trip at Our 46th Tasting Even if you haven't been to Scotland, you probably have had whiskies from the distilleries we'll be tasting at our 46th Tasting as Mark takes us on a trip up Scotland's A9 and we sample whiskies from its various distilleries.  And what better date for having a few drams of whisky than the date for our next tasting which is April 15th at our winter home at 7 p.m.So mark your calendars and get ready for a trip where you won't need any luggage and you may or may not feel the miles by the end of the evening.

  • 45th Tasting Rescheduled to February 25th To quote a variant of a line from Robbie Burn's "To a Mouse," the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry and that goes for our 45th Tasting.  You need to redo your calendars, February's tasting has been re-scheduled to February 25th.  We'll meet at 7 p.m. in our cold weather site for a tasting themed "Be Forgotten."  Your guess is as good as mine as to what's in store.  Our host for the evening Tod is playing his cards close to his chest so all I can tell you right now is that there will be scotch.  Talk about a blind tasting!

  • Our 44th Tasting is all about She - e - e-e-e-e-ry baby (Sherry Baby) Get ready for our 44th tasting on December 17th at 7 p.m. in our winter home as we explore 9 year old single malts finished in four different types of sherry butts for over three years.   As with almost all our tastings, the whiskies will be tasted blind.   To help us in better understanding the nuances of the various sherries, we'll also be tasting the sherries and then trying to identify which whisky was finished in which type of sherry before revealing the whiskies.

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).
