I can't believe it's actually taken me this long but I've finally joined the Scotch Malt Whisky Society, or rather my Wife bought me membership for my birthday yesterday.
I've been a whisky drinker for as long as i can remember, and a Friend of Laphroaig for over 14 years they reminded me yesterday, and i kept looking at the Scotch Malt Whisky Society but never got round to joining.
The joining pack is simply exquisite, with a beautiful box containing my membership card and a gorgeous little pin badge, I love badges.
Also in the box are a beautifully presented Members Handbook and Notebook in which to write your tasting notes.
The massive smile comes however when you open the last part of the box to reveal the 4 10cl whisky bottles.
I'll be getting stuck into these soon so watch out for reviews on the site and i'll also be paying a visit to the Scotch Malt Whisky Society members venue at Queen Street in Edinburgh very soon so will write up a bit about that too.
In the meantime if you're looking for a source of great Single Cask whiskies and to be part of a great whisky society, you really can't go wrong with Scotch Malt Whisky Society and I really should have signed up years ago.
