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).

  • Oysters and Single Malts Are On Tap For Our 41st Tasting on June 10th We liked it so much the last time we did this that for our 41st tasting, we will once again be pairing oysters and single malts.  Our guide from last year's oyster and single malt pairing will reprise his role as Hugh takes us on another adventure in slurping oysters and sipping single malts in hopes of learning finding the perfect dram for these delicacies from the sea.  If you haven't tried this pairing, you don't know what you're missing.  Check out last year's for some tips and check back in June for this year's results.

We'll be at our cold weather venue at 7 p.m. for another evening of great whisky and great cigars.  I'm pretty sure if you want to get a head start on your tasting notes, you'd safe putting down "wood notes."

  • A Very Tasty 39th Tasting: Old Scotia's Grandeur Springs - Springbank and Food The name of the tasting left many of us wondering what the tasting would include as far as single malts but we knew with Jim H. cooking for us it was going to be a tasty evening.  As the evening unfolded, the word "tasty" hardly seemed adequate!  Not only was the food amazing but the pairing of different expressions of Springbank with each dish took our palates to new heights.The evening started off with a Creamy Soup of Wild Mushrooms with Whisky Essence paired with a Springbank 10 Year Old.  The rich, creamy, earthy, salty notes of the soup played off nicely with the spice, salt, malt notes of the whisky.

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).
