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).

  • 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. Next we treated to a Caramelized Onion and ...

  • Our 39th Tasting on February 19th - Old Scotia's Grandeur Springs The New Year's begun, Valentine's Day will just have passed but we'll keep things going by having a very special evening of whisky and food pairings.  Tapping good old Robbie Burns for the title of this tasting, our host for the evening, Mike, has enlisted Jim H, chef extraordinaire,to work with him to put together a set of whisky and food pairings that are sure to be a hit. After Jim's culinary performance at our Robbie Burn's night a few years back, I'm pretty sure we are in for a treat.  And knowing Mike's excellent tastes in single malts, you can be sure the whiskies will be special as well.

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).
