We have a local chapter of the SMWS. Is membership worth it? What's ypur experience been?

Ganga,

I live in Ohio which is one of the worst states to get scotch in bit even with that I can still get just about anything I want through the mail. I'm only saying this because I'm still a member and love thee scotches I'm going tithe extravaganza in DC next week and can't wait to try some of their bottles. I got introduced to SMWS in Limburg Germany and have been a fan ever since. I wish the US chapter did 5cl sample bottles because I would try every bottle they come out with, as it is I probably have 20+ 5cl bottles from germany still at home to try.. Hope this helps

Splitting a membership is a great idea...the bottles seem to run a bit under market price for similar strength OBs so it's not a steal (depending on the quality, of course).

Ordering from TWE in the UK is actually cheaper for me than buying locally, sometimes up to 40%, and of course there's a far greater selection available. This would offset somewhat the additional selection offered by the SMWS.
