The Single Malt & Scotch Whisky Extravaganza Spring 2011 Schedule is out—and this year, it features two new venues, Phoenix and Dallas!
If you’ve never attended a SMSW Extravaganza before, you are in for a real treat. And we speak from experience on this one: in addition to an amazing array of whiskies on hand, along with brand ambassadors and other whisky lovers serving and tasting them (respectively, of course), a tremendous buffet, and a couple free cigars to boot, there was that hour of our lives after the event that we still cannot account for. Accordingly, we can’t go so far as to call it an “unforgettable” night–but then again, that’s our problem, not the Extravaganza’s.
Just remember to research off-site cigar smoking locations in advance, as enjoying them on-site is strictly verboten–just not that sense of “verboten.”
If the over 100 whiskies, dinner buffet, premium cigars, distillery representatives and other whisky connoisseurs aren’t enough to lead you to sign up, then you may be the type who needs the kind of additional prodding that comes only in the form of a souvenir tasting glass and the possibility of raffle prizes. While we would likely recommend cattle prods instead, the SMSW Extravaganza organizers turn out to be considerably more tolerant and kind than we, as they have graciously provided the kinder, gentler form of additional prodding.
You can find the complete spring schedule here:
Tickets to the Extravaganza are $120 each for Members and $135 each for Non-member guests. If you are not a member, however, not to worry: just use the promotional code “TMI2011” (that stands for The Malt Impostor, and, once again, not Too Much Information) and you will receive your first two tickets at the Member price ($120 each). Purchase tickets directly online:
or by calling (800) 990-1991. Once again, use the special Malt Impostor promotional code “TMI2011” to receive your first two tickets at the Member rate.
If you sign up because of this post, please email us and let us know. Also, please consider letting us know how your Extravaganza experience went: we enjoy living through others vicariously and our extensive network of webcams hidden in private locations just isn’t doing it for us any longer.
And all of this is to say nothing of the merits of the Scotch Malt Whisky Society itself, which we’ll get to in a separate post soon! Slàinte!
