What is the Single Malt and Scotch Whisky Extravaganza? In short, it is a top notch, gala, whisky tasting event (mostly single malt Scotch and Japanese whiskies) that travels to 14 major markets including Boston, Chicago, Fort Lauderdale, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Washington, DC.
I was at the 2011 NYC event and it was fantastic.
As you may or may not know, I am a member of the Scotch Malt Whisky Society (of America). And in case you’re not aware, the SMWSA does a series of tasting events called “The Single Malt & Scotch Whisky Extravaganza“. The “Extravaganza” is now in it’s 18th year. If you’ve never been to one of their events, you may want to change that, and soon!
Perhaps I can help. I’ve been working with the good folks at the society and they were kind enough to extend to me a discount code for my readers; specifically for people who are not members of the SMWSA. Tickets to one of their Extravaganzas, for members, are $120.00ea, non-members are $135.00ea. If you use the discount code JMSWS2011, those of you that are currently not members can purchase your first two tickets at the member price of $120.00. Not bad!

See below for a full listing of their Fall events schedule. I always jump at a chance to meet my readers so, for those wanting to come out and meet yours truly, I will be at the Boston event and will be doing my damnedest to get to the Chicago event.
