In celebration of the Spirit of Speyside and Fèis Ìle Festivals, Scotch Malt Whisky Society (SMWS) have announced the release of new single cask whiskies along with no fewer than three exclusive membership offers!
Of all the Scotch Whisky regions, Speyside and Islay are arguably the ones with the most conflicting flavour palates and the staunches of fans. This year, Scotch Malt Whisky Society is bravely hosting a “Region Rumble”, pitting Speyside and Islay single cask whiskies against one another in a series of events held at Spirit of Speyside (3rd – 7th May) and Fèis Ìle (25th May – 2nd June), as well as the release of 10 bottlings.
To commemorate this battle of the taste buds, the world-famous members’ club will be offering three limited run membership packages giving newcomers the opportunity to pick a side and walk away with membership + a bottle of Islay (a new release that has been held back especially for the occasion) or Speyside whisky. Pacifists not wishing to go one way or another can have the best of both worlds and choose membership plus a limited edition Mixed Festival Pack (3 x Islay whiskies and 2 x Speyside whiskies in 25ml drams).
LIMITED TIME “REGION RUMBLE” MEMBERSHIP DEAL

We were lucky enough to sample the drams on offer and, by God they’re good (find the tasting notes for Leviathan Rising, Strawberry Cheesecake Macaroons and the Mixed Festival Discovery Pack here)! SMWS is always a solid bet for those wishing to explore the diverse world of single malts as the members’ club has the world’s widest collection of rare and exceptional single cask whiskies, and every one we’ve tried so far has been – if not always to our specific taste – fantastically intriguing and vastly different from anything we’ve tasted elsewhere.
With these bottles selling fast and the offer only on until 31st May, now is the time to decide. Are you dedicated to honeyed and elegant drams or do you have a penchant for peat, campfires on the beach and marshmallows dipped in oyster brine? Are you a Craigellachie Crusader or an Islay Avenger?
