KSMS is now 23 years old (the age of a fine single malt) and is one of the longest continuous running Whisky/Whiskey clubs in Canada.
Welcome to the official opening of the KSMS website to the Kingston and surrounding area. The Kingston Single Malt Society is a club specializing in the tasting of Single Malts from a wide variety of places. We gather a number of times per year usually on the third Monday of the month. Dinners in the months of December, July and August are reserved for special events with our tasting season starting in September. Dinners are usually held at the River Mill Restaurant, a fine local establishment where we dine on a Four/Five course meal coupled with a fine sampling of at least three single malt whiskies.
At each dinner we sample single malts from some of the regions of Scotland, Ireland or the world. The only condition is that they are single malts. With the whole world to choose from we often find that the best and most widely known Single Malts come from the Regions of Scotland. For each dinner a selection of Single Malts is made sometimes from each of the regions of Scotland. On occasion we choose a single malt from elsewhere in the world.
