Calling all whisky chasers, The SMWS have a special membership offer, membership to the Scotch Malt Whisky Society plus a bottle of their new release Old Fashioned, the Society’s first beer-matured blended malt.

The SMWS Old Fashioned IPA Cask Matured Blended MaltCalling all whisky chasers this month at The Scotch Malt Whisky Society they're celebrating the timeless pairing of whisky and beer. With their ever-changing selection of bottlings and endless flavours to choose from, the SMWS can make the perfect partner for any 'hauf & hauf'.

The SMWS also loves a bit of experimentation, and they have unveiled the Old Fashioned – a blended malt bottling matured in an IPA cask from a local Scottish brewery.

The Old Fashioned is the Society’s first beer-matured blended malt, it came about after they sent Tempest Brewing Co in the Scottish Borders some first-fill Kentucky bourbon casks, which they used to mature their powerfully hoppy Double IPA – known as Old Fashioned.

They returned the casks for the SMWS to mature an 11 year old Speyside whisky in them for another 14 months, before then they blended that with selected malts from first-fill sherry hogsheads.

'Hauf & Hauf' Whsky & BeerThe result is the Society’s very own Old Fashioned, named in honour of the Double IPA that preceded it.

They say that the flavours from the blend of whiskies and the different casks they’ve been matured in has given Old Fashioned a balance of sweet, herbal and citric notes, similar in character to the Old Fashioned cocktail that the whisky has been named after.

Of course you can always have a  'hauf & hauf' and pair it with a beer of your choice.

The SMWS are offering a special membership offer (while stocks last) which is membership to the Scotch Malt Whisky Society plus a bottle of their new release Old Fashioned for just £99, you can find the offer here:
