SLOWLANDS Berlin | Whisky Club | Fri 14th October

Good Whisky. Evil Music.

Enjoy up to 30 different kinds of liquid gold from all around the world (not just Scotland and USA), most of which you won’t find anywhere else in Berlin.

The new entrant for this weeks Slowlands is still in LA but will be here in time for Friday. It’s a 9 years old single barrel bottling (from barrel no. 04L30N55310) from George Dickel that comes in nice 51.1% abv and is only available in the US. This is not Bourbon but Tennessee Whisky (yes, whisky not whiskey) from one of only two major producers (Jack Daniel’s being the other one). While the recipe is pretty much the same as bourbon the main difference is the so called Lincoln County process – drip filtering the new make through oak charcoal before aging it which makes it smoother.
Fun fact: prohibition is still in action in most of Tennessee. So anything above beer is mostly illegal.

SLOWLANDS Berlin | Whisky Club | Fri 5th August

Summer-is-finally-over celebration of Slowlands this Friday (= tomorrow)…
We restocked a few bottles and got this new one:
Clan Denny 9ys old Single Cask 55.7% abv
Single Grain Whisky from Strathclye in full cask strength. Matured in a sherry butt (500l). Clan Denny is Douglas Laing’s brand for high-end Single Grain releases. Elegant nose. Thick, fruity taste. Tried it for breakfast and worked perfectly so should fit late hours even better!

SLOWLANDS Berlin | Whisky Club | Fri 13th May

Somehow we managed to get 5 fantastic new whisk(e)ys for Slowlands this Friday (probably by spending too much money):

* The standard Clynelish is already a great classic Highland whisky but thats the Distillers Edition with additional Oloroso finishing!

* Arran 18y (eighteen) – far too expensive but this is just the shit. One sip and you know that all the marketing lies about “age doesn’t matter” are just this.

* Wolfburn – the products of newly built distilleries due to the ongoing whisky boom are starting to reach the markets. laughable 3 years young but already really enjoyable. with soft peat.

*Mackmyra Iskristall – luckily back on the menu. from our favorite Swedish distillery. Finished in PX casks.

* Rowan’s Creek – time for another good bourbon…

Taste The Doom 25th Edition

Finally we can announce that TTD25 will take place on May 7th in one of the greatest locations we’ve had the pleasure of serving whisky in: Studenterhuset, Aalborg, Denmark. Their attention to detail made the night absolutely brilliant and wildly epic and last time was even followed up by a 2 page-spread in the local newspaper. So we reckon this might sell out quite fast…
As usual we have gone to great lengths in order to select the finest whisky for your palate and we will disclose the entire list shortly, but for now we can say that we’ll have a rather splendid independent bottling of Dalmore and a truly surprising little known bottling of Ailsa Bay!

Use this link to secure your ticket now: http://www.billetlugen.dk/da/event/taste-doom/billetter

And we haven’t even mentioned the best part: TTD25 will take place in a super secret place which is set to blow your mind! So there really are no excuses for not showing up.

TTD20 and TTD21

We’ve got our hands full for the coming months and these are the first two events we are ready to disclose.

We are very happy to be able to announce that tickets can now be reserved for TTD20 at N.K. in Berlin on April 24th. So make sure to secure your ticket now by sending a mail to worshipthedram@tastethedoom.com with “TTD20″ in the subject line. Price is €30 and pick-up details will follow. The tasting begins at 21.00 hrs SHARP!

Furthermore we are equally happy that we’ll make TTD21 at Heavy Days in Doom Town on May 2nd in Copenhagen. Personally we’re looking very much forward to this musical highlight of the year and we can only urge you to join us at either the festival or the tasting (you do not need festival tickets to partake in the tasting). TTD21 will be held in Nordvest Bibliotek & Kulturhus and you can reserve your ticket by sending a mail to worshipthedram@tastethedoom.com with “TTD21″ in the subject line.  But be really fast as half the tickets are already gone. Price is 250 Dkk and pick-up details will follow. The tasting begins at 16.00 hrs SHARP!
