A remarkable collection of Scotch Malt Whisky Society newsletters, outturn lists and magazines. The collection was accumulated over many years from the very beginning of the SMWS by the vendor. It has been stored in order and offers a treasure trove of information on numerous obscure past SMWS bottlings - including their rather incredible original prices. The collection features the very first newsletter detailing the sale of bottling 1.1, up to recent outturns and a run of editions of the in house Unfiltered magazine. Reading through some of the past outturns from the 1980s and 1990s can make for fascinating (and upsetting) reading. The most complete set of these we've ever seen and a beautiful insight into the history of the SMWS, how the language of how they describe whisky has evolved, what sort of bottlings have been done over the years and the artistry used to illustrate it all. Good condition.
Although a condition report is normally included in the lot description, we would recommend viewing/close inspection prior to placing any bids.
If this is not an option and you have questions beyond the offered description and images, please use the link "ask a question" to make specific enquiries or to receive a more in-depth condition report. Otherwise lots will be sold as seen and described.
Please note: due to the various ages of bottles and their seals, condition of liquid is at the buyer's discretion and no claim can be lodged against failure/leakage in transit.
