The Scotch Malt Whisky Society of America Releases Outturn Issue 104 – Scotch Whisky News


It has been a lovely summer, indeed, one which has given our team ample relaxation to recharge our internal batteries as well as our psyches for a busy and exciting fall season to come. We are very excited about the upcoming Single Malt and Scotch Whisky Extravaganza fall tour, and hope to see you at one of these events. We are also pleased to announce that several members’ tastings are being scheduled in other cites around the country. Please look for forthcoming date announcements on our website and invitations in the mail so that you can enjoy Society whiskies and a guest distillery in these member gatherings.

We’ve selected five diverse Society whiskies for you in this Outturn, our last issue for the summer. These selections from the Highlands, Speyside and Campbeltown will delight your palate. From the Highlands, we offer Society Cask No. 59.39, a 16 year old aged in a refill hogshead and filled with treacle toffee and hot fudge sundae flavours. Also available is Society Cask No. 39.75 which matured 13 years in a first fill sherry butt. Its flavours include Cuban coffee, cedar cigar boxes, limes and barbequed pork with a pineapple glaze. Society Cask No. 37.46, one of the Classic Malts, is a 10 year old from a refill hogshead and bursts with banana, caramel and sherbet. It is a delightful aperitif. Lastly, from Campbeltown’s most well known and respected distillery is Society Cask No. 27.79 which matured for 19 years in a refill Bourbon barrel. Presenting an unusual cherry nose and chocolate covered cherries with Milky Ways bars on the palate, this whisky is “yummy!”

The President’s Choice for this Outturn is Society Cask No. 2.77. Having spent 21 years in a refill sherry butt, its initial flavours are fruity & citrus. The finish combines deep rich dark chocolate and zesty grapefruit.

Enjoy your Society whiskies this summer in good health and moderation.

Best regards,

Alan Shayne, President
The Scotch Malt Whisky Society of America, Ltd.
