Welcome to the “official” Newcomers Whisky Club website!

Here is our entry into the Big Time with our own official website. Ultimately, The NWC website will allow our members to see updates about future meetings, review and pull copies of our past meeting Tasting Notes, look through a log of all the whiskies (and other spirits) we’ve tried, and more. The site is in its early stages so if you have any enhancement ideas, please share!

Remember, our first 2015 is coming up in a couple of weeks – February 21! Taking a slightly different path this month, we are going to explore a series of whiskies from Compass Box. We will have a beautiful single grain whisky, Hedonism, plus a variety of blends and blended malt whiskies to try. Some of you may remember that in one of our early meetings we tried a Compass Box whisky when we sampled their Great King Street Artist’s Blend – which was a big hit.

The whiskies we will sample this month are a tremendous showcase of the quality that Compass Box produces and the innovation that John Glaser and his team have become famous for. Most recently, Compass Box was awarded the 2014 Whisky Innovator of the Year by Whisky Mag. Added to this recognition is a series of Gold Medal and other prestigious awards that Compass Box whiskies have received and you know that this evening will be fantastic.

Looking forward to seeing everyone!


  1. I don’t know what you’ve gotten me in to…. but as a result of the Boxing Day bash I by passed the beer aisle today and instead picked up a bottle of Gordon & MacPhail Mortlach. Sitting here with a glass just warning up for tonight’s Compass Box tasting.- happy birthday to me.

    Looking forward to tonight

  2. OK, up and running. Log in process strenuous at first but think you got it covered now. Looking forward to very enjoyable updates, contacts and tastings.
