THE WAIT IS OVER – A WORLD OF WONDERFUL WHISKIES AWAITS!

How do I get them? you ask.  Join The Society now, we reply!

The Canadian branch of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society is open for business.  For details on how to join visit www.smws.ca.  But for more instant gratification, here’s a quick overview.

Initial membership is $230.  Upon joining you will receive the exquisitely-designed Membership Pack (pictured above) which includes the coveted membership card personalized with your name and membership number; a handsome lapel pin; a Society handbook; a tasting note book; and best of all – four 100ml bottles of The Society’s extraordinary single cask, single malt whiskies to tantalize your tastebuds!

But more than the Membership Pack, joining The Society puts you in the enviable position of being able to purchase our rare and unique whiskies, not available to non-members.  The Society only bottles single cask whisky which means quantities are limited.  Once an expression is sold out, it’s gone forever, never to be replicated.  But don’t let that deter you!  If you miss the chance to buy one, there’s always another fantastic choice on offer.

Members will receive a monthly bottling list called Outturn which outlines each month’s new bottlings.  Quirky yet informative tasting notes written by our Tasting Panel of industry experts and enthusiasts accompany each bottle description making it easy for you to find the perfect dram.  The month’s Outturn is available on www.smws.ca.

Membership also entitles you to receive our quarterly award-winning magazine Unfiltered – a glossy, colourful, sometimes whimsical look at the whisky industry.

Don’t delay – there’s a space on your shelf for a great new whisky (or two, or…).  www.smws.ca

Here’s just one great example of the whiskies now available:

 

7.70 Naughty Nectar  19 year old Speyside

The nose conveyed elegance and maturity – perfumed honey, dried coconut and exotic fruits.  These impressions carried through to the palate, with vanilla giving overall impressions of tutti frutti or Neopolitan ice cream – ‘Nectar!’  ‘Absolutely fabulous!’ and ‘Decadent and naughty!’ were some of our responses.  The reduced nose, still sweetly enticing, also had intimations of worn leather, canvas, cigarette packets and celery salt.  The reduced palate seemed like a heavenly garden – beehives, flowers, washing on the line and canvas chairs in the sun, with sherbet fountains!  From the distillery next-door to Benriach.

  1. We want to wish Rob and Kelly Carpenter all the best in launching the SMWS on our shores. Much more information and support for these two and their enterprise to come on ATW…
