SMWS Partner Bar legends Whisky & Alement @whiskyandalement have just last night picked up the prestigious award of Australian Whisky Bar of the Year from @australianbartender for Bar Week 2017. This unsurprising and totally deserved honour goes to the whole team that make it officially the best whisky bar in the country. Well done!

Our special evening with Martin 'The Viking' Markvardsen from Highland Park distillery has been announced and tickets won't last long. 6 x whiskies, light supper, and great banter with the Viking of Orkney all in the Archer room at @thebotanical in South Yarra. Tues 3rd Oct, 6pm for 6:30pm start. Don't miss out: smws.com.au

Last night was the official launch of our 15th anniversary Australian-exclusive single cask 73.83 'Anzac Biscuits and Cricket Bats' along with 15th anniversary of Australian branch party! More photos to come, but I want to say a big special thanks firstly to our members who came along to pack the venue out, our founders Andre and John who made the night really special, and of course our Cellarmaster Andrew for picking such a delicious Sherry cask to share around. Special thanks to @bacardiau for their kind support of the event with the Aultmore 12, and thanks to our incredible Partner Bar @shirtbar Barangaroo for their great space and more. More to come, but 73.83 is formally on sale to members for only $155 from tomorrow (Friday) midday AEST, only on smws.com.au.

Our very special single cask bottled exclusively for Australian members to celebrate 15 years of the Society, bottled at 15 years old in the cask, will be launched next week for members. A stunning array of rich flavours, Sherry, spice, oak and character all come together in harmony bottled at natural cask strength of 56.9%. Friday, 1st September, midday AEST. The whole cask is ours! Cheers and happy birthday.

A Friday night in our RAC home in Sydney last night was an absolute delight. A full social evening to warm winter up with 6 x single casks and welcome dram, for 82 x members packed out the glorious old surrounds of the club room. Thanks to all who came out, and see you at the 15th anniversary! #whiskylife #rac #winterwhisky #whiskyledger #singlecask #singlemalt #drams #sydneywhisky #thesmws #tasting #fullflavour #caskstrength #societynights #dramming #whiskyandwisdom #condensernerds #whiskylife

Membership to the SMWS is global, and members can reap the full rewards of their membership when traveling to any of our venues, just like our friends over at @whisknick enjoying this rather rare cask of 131.2 at the Park Hotel Tokyo. #repost

SMWS Hanyu 131.2 "Magic Carpet in a Sweetie Shop"
[55.1%・Distilled in 2000・Bottled in 2014・13 Years Old・SMWS Bottling・Single Cask Release of 646 Bottles]
Nose:
Incredibly syrupy with the toffee treacle. Plenty of aged leather with a hint of candied ginger but the overall tone leans towards the heaviness as gifted by a thick syrupy cask. There is a rich waxiness amidst the prominent spices as a delicate brush of blackcurrant sweetness is released from the background, bringing along other dark fruits. There is a hint of caramelized popcorn that surfaces in time.
Palate & Finish:
Oh the sweetness, intensely rich with the buttery toffee, astoundingly thick with the blackcurrant jam, raisins and five spices, dark berry coulis and dark chocolate block all coming together. The delivery grows even heavier with a richer assertion of dried fruits, satisfaction ensues..
The finishing is mellow with only traces of dark fruits and strawberry chewing gum remaining. Quite a juxtaposition for a whisky which such a heavy premise, something comforting after a breathtaking experience.
Thoughts:
Quality 1st fill Sherry butts can seem a bit homogeneous at times but once in a while a marvelous cask comes along and throws a curve ball that stuns the crowd. This is one of those instances..

Moments like these are why we love our members and the whisky experiences like no other at the SMWS. Pictured here is National Ambassador Matt Bailey alongside Master Distiller Graham Coull and his lovely wife Fay Coull for an intimate evening of Glen Moray single casks at the iconic Melbourne Whisky Room last week. Stellar night and a truly unforgettable evening for all. Thanks and until next time Graham! #glenmoray #timeforwhisky #whiskylife #caskstrength #tasting #melbwhiskyroom #SingleCask #singlemaltwhisky #speyside #spice #whiskylife #grahamcoull #distillery #whiskymelbourne @melbwhiskyroom @whiskyandalement @poorly.edited

Last Sunday we had the absolute pleasure and privilege of sitting in Melbourne Whisky Room, tasting six different single cask, cask strength, Society panel-approved Glen Moray's, with the master distiller himself Graham Coull and his lovely wife Fay Coull. Experiences like these are what it means to be a member of the world's best whisky club, and form nights that I'll certainly never forget. Thanks to everyone who came and packed in the room on a cold blustery Melbourne night, and sláinte! #glenmoray #melbwhiskyroom #melbournebars #whiskylife #membersperks #flavour #thesmws #russellst #grahamcoull #pinnacle #speyside #focusonflavour #whiskybar #whiskytime #timeforwhisky #whiskyledger #cheninblanc #melbournecbd #scotlandtoaustralia

It's evenings like this in which I truly appreciate every day I give to our members serving up the absolute cream-of-the-crop casks at events. Had a remarkable and intimate tasting with delicious casks and charcuterie in Perth last night at the stunning Bar Lafayette. We also had our new WA state manager co-host, which we'll formally announce to members shortly. In the meantime, we finished up with this 29.205, from one of the most iconic Islay powerhouse distilleries that we're definitely getting more to come of. Great whisky, great company, and memorable experiences! #ilovemyjob #laphroaig #singlemalt #membersperks #whisky #flavour #thesmws #tasting #perthwa #smws #peatandsmoke #peat #caskstrength

Sharing full flavour with members and people discovering the Society for the first time is always a blast. Thanks to all who came and tasted the range I had at Independent's Day and a big thanks to the team at @independentsday, @baranowsemporium and @starwardwhisky for their incredible organisation of the day. I'm pretty tired now. Picture from member @michael.sette just tasting our upcoming Malt of the Month 'Mexican breakfast' at the stand.

Sometimes, that Islay 'funk' and rich old Sherry casks make for the ideal winter dram. Finishing off the last dregs of this stunning 3.270 remind me that I've never tasted a '3' cask that hasn't been intriguing and totally unique. Hope you're all enjoying a rich peated winter dram on these cold nights.
