Once again, if you haven’t noticed, it’s whisky event season. The one that is nearest and dearest to our hearts is the Single Malt and Scotch Whisky Extravaganza organized by the Scotch Malt Whisky Society of America. This is should not be surprising, given that we’ve been writing a full page “column” in the Society’s member magazine, Unfiltered, for over a year now (and couldn’t be prouder–check out the link in the left-hand column. Hell, we even appear in their promotional materials (see the pic just below). Beyond that, our long-time readers know that the Extravaganza was our first big whisky event and that that night turned out to be legendary in the annals of Malt Impostordom. Tuxes were worn (not because they were required), many new friends were made, merriment was had in abundance, and there were hours for which we still cannot account.
For those who have never attended one of the Extravaganzas, well, you are about to emerge from a black hole of boredom and mediocrity with all of the wonder and awe with which we emerged from our
alien abduction lost hours wandering the streets of Boston after that first event. For one thing, the Extravaganza features rare and exceptional single malt Scotch (not to mention single cask whiskies from the Society) and unique whiskies from around the world. For another, the Extravaganza includes a delicious dinner buffet as well as a selection of premium imported cigars for your later enjoyment (you know, once you’re finished employing your palate for the evening). Need another? Knowledgeable representatives from each participating distillery. Boom! Not enough for you? Well, then there’s the camaraderie of the Society: it’s a genuinely great group of folks who make up the Society. What do you have to say after that? Still not enough? How about the fact that we’ll be there, too (at least at the Boston event)? Look for us there–we’ll be the ones with the Groucho Marx glasses. Nothing to say after that last one, huh? I thought so.
All events from 7:00pm-9:00pm. Registration begins at 7:00pm. Business casual, Jackets preferred. No denim or athletic attire. And do something with that hair, will you? (OK, we added that last bit.)

We are all members, and we want you to feel the member love, so we’re offering you a special promotional code–and one that’s clearly better than all those other promo codes (don’t be fooled!)–that will allow non-members to buy tickets at the member price of $135.00.
