Tasting at The Scotch Malt Whisky Society

Since coming back from our holidays, Lucas and I have been quite keen to get another Edinburgh Whisky Blog tasting arranged. We both had our hearts set on one particular venue and… we’ve got it!

The venue of choice: The Scotch Malt Whisky Society in the Vaults in Leith

Date: Wednesday 12th of August

Time: 7pm.

They are going to give us a tutored tasting of 3 of their single cask, cask-strength whiskies. Normally a members bar, the SMWS is opening its doors on certain nights for non-members, so Lucas and I have snapped up the tickets for this night. Numbers are limited, so put your best foot forward, get involved and come on down. In our humble opinion, it’s the best place in Edinburgh to drink whisky. Leather chairs, mahogany tables, open fire, great food and awesome whisky.

With single cask whiskies from 120 different distilleries and some cracking guest ales, I am sure that we will spend the rest of the evening enjoying the pleasures of the Society. I can’t wait!

So once more : Wednesday 12th of August at the Scotch Malt Whisky Society in the Vaults in Leith.

Address: 87 Giles Street, Edinburgh EH6 6BZ

Time: 7pm

Cost: £15 (£12 for the SMWS members)

The ticket includes tutored tasting in the Vaults and day membership at the society… and apparently some surprises that even Lucas and I do not know about.

How do I get tickets? If you know us, come and give us the money and we will book the tickets. If you are coming from afar or don’t know us yet, phone : 0131 555 2929 and quote ‘Edinburgh Whisky Blog’ when booking.

If you need to contact us, then give me a call at 07841 386 257 or email us at edinburghwhisky@gmail.com.

We will see you then!


  1. Hi guys! Well done you on bagging SMWS HQ for your tasting. I hope to become a member. When I can afford it…
    This is for Chris more than Lucas, (sorry). We met at The Scoth Whisky Experience last Tuesday and you said you’d be interested to hear my views on The Dalmore 1263. They’re coming, but for now I’ve got a complete write-up of my time at the Experience if you want to check it out.
    Really enjoying following the blog so keep it up.

  2. So you shouldn’t come to feel you have to pass about the costlier variations Michael Kors Bags
