Event: The Whisky Society 2016 - Win Tickets!

TLDR: 2 pairs of The Whisky Society event tickets worth RM229 each up for grabs. Find out how to win them at the end of this post.

What is this?
Back for its second year, The Whisky Society is a mini Malaysian whisky tasting festival which is especially ideal for people who want try a whole bunch of whiskies but don't really want to  commit to full bottles of too many different expressions.

Confirmed participating brands so far (....with MORE coming!):
  • The Balvenie (12, 14, 17)
  • Bruichladdich (Laddie, Port Charlotte, OCTOMORE!!)
  • Chivas (Extra, 12, 18)
  • Glenfiddich (12,15, 18)
  • Johnnie Walker (GREEN LABEL!!!)
  • Kavalan (concertmaster, ex-bourbon, podium)
  • Monkey Shoulder 
  • Nikka (Coffey Grain & Malt)
  • Paul John (Brilliance & Edited. It's the "new" SMW from India!)
  • The Singleton (Signature)
  • Tomintoul (Peaty Tang, 14, 16)
Simple - the price of the ticket allows you to sample as many whiskies & as many times as you'd like (or for as long as your liver can stand it). Canapes included & you get a 2016 Whisky Society lapel pin as a souvenir. Plus: other fun activities like VR tours of selected distilleries!

Price & Purchase:
Standard tickets priced at RM229 - buy it from:
For DRAMFULL members only at RM199 - ASK ME HOW!

It's not evident in the ticket site, but there's something else called Under the Dram too. These are selected whiskies which you will also get to try with an additional fee via token purchase (minimum purchase of RM50 for 2 tokens) at the event. You buy as many as you want as 1 token gets you a shot of any of the following:

  • Glenfiddich 21 
  • Diageo Classic Malts (think Talisker, Oban etc.. etc..)
  • Kavalan Solist Sherry / Port

Thanks to the folks at The Whisky Society, I've got 2 pairs of tickets (yes, 2 + 2 tickets) worth RM229 EACH to be given away to 2 lucky winners.

All you need to do is follow these simple steps:

2. SHARE the Whisky Society FB page on YOUR OWN FB timeline.
3. TELL me (either on my FB page or in the comments below) which whisky you're looking forward to trying & why. :)

This contest will end at the end of the week - 9 October 2016.  I'll contact the 2 winners via email right after - so please make sure you're contactable either via email or Facebook, okay? Terms & conditions etc. apply.  



  1. I'm definitely looking forwards to the Balvenie 17 because I'm such a big fan of the 12 year Balvenie. The 12 year Balvenie is a regular staple in my household because of it's easy to drink nature and is a great after party drink when a sherry just doesn't cut it. I would love to step up to the 14 and 17 and see if there are more of an after party or the star of the party.

  2. For me it'll always be the Nikka Yoichi!

    [N]othing can beat this heavenly liquor.
    [I]ndeed a drink worthy of kings!
    [K]eeping it authentic since 1934, it's a
    [K]ryptonite to the whisky lovers.
    [A]ll shall bow to it's greatness!

    1. Hi there! You didn't leave me any contact details for me to get in touch with you! Please do so!

    2. Thanks for the contact details. I've deleted your comment because I suspect you may not want the entire Internet to know of your contact details :)
