Twitter tasting with the SMWS

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society and Edinburgh Whisky Blog (that’s us) are organising a panel tasting that will be fed live to you guys via Twitter.

Both Edinburgh branches (Queen Street and Leith Vaults) will host a small panel including an SMWS taster, a whisky journalist/writer and a blogger and will be tasting the same set of four whiskies (two current bottlings and two pre-release) simultaneously. The bloggers (that would be Chris and myself) will be tweeting everything as we go and answering any questions, reacting to your responses etc.

We will remind you about it again closer to the date, the details of the whiskies to be sampled on the night will follow too.

The event is taking place on Wednesday, 30th of September, at 7.00pm
