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…






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.

We are open from 9pm on.

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.

TTD19 @ N.K. (Berlin) 24/01/15

We know that today is a sad day for many people, unless of course you love your job, in which case today is indeed a truly happy day. But however the case we’re just about to make your day significantly better with the following announcement: (ahem) Hear ye, hear ye – we cordially invite you to take part in the first Taste The Doom of 2015! We know we’ve been away for far too long and we wholeheartedly apologize for that and it will never happen again (although that is actually not a promise). But suffice to say we will make it up to you (and you know it) through our flawless selection of whiskies to be had at TTD19 (which you will not want to miss out on!). So, to wrap it up: TTD19 will take place @ N.K. (Elsenstr. 52, Neukölln) on saturday the 24th of January 2015 at 21.00 p.m. SHARP! And you may reserve your tickets (€25 each) already now sending a mail to worshipthedram@tastethedoom.com. Pickup of tickets will commence as soon as convenient.

TTD18 – Vienna


We cordially invite you to help us inaugurate the first Viennese Taste The Doom on Sat 30th August 2014. After three successful years in Berlin, Amsterdam and Copenhagen and with press coverage in diverse media from German metal blogs over Danish national radio to The New York Times we now bring this epic event to the world capital of morbid mindsets and depression-based alcohol abuse.

Join us to revel in two of the most delightful things in life: Drinking excellent whisky and listening to supreme Doom/Sludge/Stoner Metal. We will spoil you with a hand-picked selection of seven outstanding whiskies and tracks, which we introduce to you in detail one by one. Each dram can then be enjoyed while listening to our carefully selected music and/or chatting with your friends (if you have any).

The tasting will take place at one of the most suitable places in town: the sun terrace of Grelle Forelle, which should be a familiar place to everyone into whisky or doom metal (we’ve been told).

This Viennese edition of Taste The Doom is organized in cooperation with Grelle Forelle.

Seats are limited to 32 and you MUST buy a ticket in advance. Really! Ticket purchase works like this:
* buy them online through oeticket – link will be added.
* buy them offline at wienXtra-jugendinfo (Babenbergerstraße 1/Ecke Burgring)
tickets should be available form monday 28.7. on.
And, no, there are no free tickets…

The tasting starts at 7pm sharp and will last about 2,5 hours. We will lecture predominantly in English. Viennese language assistance is available on request.

Tickets are 35 Euro each.
