Taster's Club Whiskey of the Month Club
1 overall rating
1 Ratings | 1 Reviews

Taster’s Club is a subscription that sends a new bottle of “must have” liquor to your door every month.

Taster'sClub-August-2016-Unwrapping

When you sign up for a subscription, you decide what kind of alcohol you’d like to receive. The following clubs are available: Whisky, Bourbon, Scotch, Scotch Pro, Rum, Tequila, and Tequila Pro. This is a review of the Scotch Club.

Taster’s Club subscriptions are accompanied by their “Whisky 101” course material, so you can learn more about what you’re drinking.

My Subscription Addiction pays for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

The Subscription Box: Taster’s Club

The Cost: $79 per month + shipping for the Scotch Club (Shipping to DC was an additional $15.) Note that the price differs between clubs.

The Products: A different bottle of liquor every month. (My shipments feature Scotch because I joined the “Scotch Club.”)

A note about shipping: Taster’s Club does not list the US states to which they ship on their website. Most alcohol subscription companies are unable to ship to all 50 states due to alcohol shipping restrictions, so I’m uncertain whether Taster’s Club is able to ship nationwide or not.

Tamdhu 10 Year Old Single Malt Scotch– $66.99

This month’s Scotch is a single malt from Tamdhu, a Speyside distillery that’s been around for over 120 years.

Taster'sClub-August-2016-Label

This 10 year old single malt is aged in sherry casks, and the distiller pinpoints notes of “sweet marzipan, toasted nuts… vanilla… warm cinnamon, oak, and a modest hint of peat smoke.” This Scotch smells so good I didn’t want to stop sniffing it! I could definitely pick out the aromas of vanilla and spice.

This is my first time sampling Tamdhu Scotch, and I’m so impressed. In the glass, it’s smooth, sweet, super rich, and tastes like vanilla, buttery caramel, and dried fruit.

This is a Scotch I would certainly pour for company. I think it’s delicious and definitely a crowd pleaser.

The Verdict: I’m really happy that Taster’s Club introduced me to a new distillery this month, and I love the bottle I received. I’m also pleased with the supplemental information I received via email. In terms of value, this month’s box came in pretty significantly below the subscription cost. I haven’t been subscribing long enough to see whether or not the value will balance out over time, but so far it’s looking like this is not a high value (or even a break even) subscription.

What do you think of Taster’s Club? Have you tried Tamdhu 10 Year Old before?

"The Taster’s Club Team have worked hard to curate a list of 'must have', whiskeys, focusing on fabulous Scotch Whiskeys and Bourbons. Each month, you can expect a new 750ml bottle of fantastic whiskey at your door that you wont forget. Part of what makes our clubs great is the surprise of getting a... read more.

Hi, I’m Mack McConnell, the Founder of Taster’s Club. Anyone is welcome to reach out to me personally if they have any questions regarding our subscription service – mack [at] TastersClub [dot] com.

We are very passionate about spirits and love discovering new whiskeys, bourbons, scotches, rums and tequilas. Part of what our members love about our service is that we feature amazing spirits that are not easily found at your local liquor store. In other words, fantastic selections that you may have not found or purchased on your own 🙂

Also, Lindsey alludes to it above, but we also include original content on each bottle. For us, getting an awesome bottle is very nice, but learning all about that whiskey’s story can really take the experience to the next level.

Thank you My Subscription Addiction for the review!

It’s a shame about the price vs. value situation. I personally am not interested in a sub that does not at least meet the price charged as far as value of the box.
