Malt Whisky Appreciation

Bottles of whiskey

We meet every two months to sample a wide range of whiskies from around the world. You may not like every one, however there is no better way to sample, discuss and enjoy this amazing drink and have a good laugh with a bunch of like minded people.

We still have room for new members. For the details of the venue contact Grant Cameron.

Below are lists of the whiskies that we've sampled together in 'in person' meetings along with a list of 'lockdown' whiskies sampled, mainly by one of us, during our Zoom calls.

The Malt Whisky Appreciation Group held a Burns Night event. In addition to the usual sampling of whiskies we enjoyed haggis, neeps and tatties followed by the Scottish 'delicacy' of tablet. The tablet was a first for a number of the group but seemed to disappear pretty quickly!!

The Malt Whisky Group held a special meeting on 22nd Dec 2023 where they sampled Japanese sakes and donated the funds to the Herts Branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA). In total, £140 was donated which was a fantastic result and all while we managed to sample five different sakes, eat some sushi and have a very nice evening just before Christmas. 

In January 2020 the Malt Whisky Appreciation Group were excited that we had reached our 97th whisky. As it is the normal routine that every two months we sample three whiskies we believed that in March 2020 that we would reach #100. It was clearly not meant to be and the meetings moved online. 

In July 2021 we held our first in person meeting outside and acquired and sampled whiskies 98, 99 and 100!

The Malt Whisky Group has continued to meet through Zoom so we have made an attempt to capture the whiskies that we have been sampling at home. We do discuss these and we believe that there will be some recommendations from this list to guide us once we are able to meet again in person. Updated after May 2021 Virtual Meeting (which we hope is the last one!).


Below is a list of whiskies which we have sampled in physical meetings between 2012 and now. During Covid-19 we moved to virtual meetings and drank what we had to hand and those whiskies are listed separately in 'The Lockdown List'
