A Society of Individuals Who Share a Passion for Single Malt Whisky.


Welcome!

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).

  • Mark Your Calendars for Our 48th Tasting on August 19th! Our explorations continue as the theme for our 48th Tasting is "The Lost Region."  Our host Ben while tight lipped about where the whiskies will be coming from that we'll be tasting promises that once found we won't forget these whiskies or where they came from.  If all goes well, we'll also be exploring a new region locally - Ben's new house.Don't forget you must RSVP no later than 10 days before the tasting to reserve your spot.

  • Ready for some exploring? Our 47th Tasting Is All About Exploration! Are you ready for another adventure?  Our last tasting took you to distilleries along Scotland's A9, our 47th Tasting promises "To Boldly Go Where No One Has Gone Before."  With apologies to Star Trek and Trekkies, our host David D's tasting may have nothing to do with space travel but promises a evening that will feature whiskies from distilleries we have yet to experience.  It will be an evening with some great whiskies from distilleries in places you might be surprised by.  So mark your calendars for June 16 (a Saturday instead of our usual Sunday in deference to the fathers among us).

  • 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.

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).
