Joshua Hatton and Jason Johnstone-Yellin, proprietors of the respected whisky blogs The Jewish Single Malt Whisky Society and Guid Scotch Drink, respectively, have just announced a new venture. Similar to the Scotch Malt Whisky Society, the Jewish Single Malt Whisky Society (JSMWS) will provide paying members with access to exclusive single-cask bottlings of natural (no added coloring), un-chill-filtered, cask-strength scotches, selected by the founders. Like the SMWSA, this society is based in the US, so you don’t have to worry about overseas shipping charges. It looks like the selections the JSMWS will be bottling are bound to be on the pricey side (reportedly $85 – $150 per bottle), as they’re bottling older and rarer casks such as old Glenglassaughs, GlenDronachs, limited-availability Kilchomans, and so forth. Only members will have access to purchasing these bottles.
