TTD11 – line up

We’re finally and proudly presenting the line-up for TTD11. As it will take place in an environment that focuses on organic, independence and, eh, small batches we chose to use these core values as guidelines. However only a small handful whiskies are truly organic and additionally usually also released in limited editions. We did better in the ‘indepence’ and ‘small batch’ department but we decided to broaden the scope a bit anyway. There is a reasonable explanation to all (most) of our additions and we will (hopefully) give you the gist of it on saturday. Here goes, we hope you like it:

TTD11 – line up:
Baker’s 7 yr 53,5%
Bruichladdich Organic 46%
Ballantines 17yrs 43%
Kilchoman 100% Islay 50%
Ledaig 8 yrs, 61% (BM)
Bowmore 17y Old, 43%
Bunnahabhain 5 yrs, 60,7% (BM)

TTD11 – first open air tasting ever!

So, here’s the big lovely news:
Next Taste The Doom is on Saturday Sept 7th and the place is just incredible: Prinzessinnengarten at U8 Moritzplatz. Yes, this will be our first Open Air tasting!!! So take the whisky and the doom add the stars (we will start earlier than usual so we have the sunset as well). We will have a looong table in between the flowers for us and a more than decent sound system. Weather will be fine because… we say so. However there is something big with a roof there to keep us dry in case of rain. If you are sensitive to chilly temperatures don’t worry, we have something for you – sevenfold.

The ticket sale for Taste The Doom 11 will start today. Procedure is the same as always: mail to worshipthedram@tastethedoom.com to reserve your tickets. then make an appointment with me to pick them up within 3 days in Neukölln. address on request. ticket price is (still) 25 Euro. since this is a one-off open air tasting which we wont be able to do again before summer 2014 – if at all – we’ve upped capacity to 50 people. but dont think that this means you can wait with your reservation. tickets will be gone in no time just like always!

TTD9 (TAZ Edition) & TTD10

For those of you who do not care for Facebook and thus have not followed the heated debate in said place, we’ll give you the headlines. Which is to say: the two posts that spurred the debate.

TTD9 (TAZ Edition)
Here goes: We are very pleased to announce that we’ll host the next TTD9 in Berlin on Sat. 20/4 – 21hrs. The tasting is a part of this years TazLab, organized by TAZ.de so you’ll have to head over to their website to get tickets. And from a quick glance it seems that you can actually get the cheapest TTD-tickets in history, as apparently you can choose how much you’d like to pay. Neat. Be aware that they expect 2.000 visitors and TTD-seats are as usual limited to 32, so getting a ticket to the congress is not a guarantee to get a seat for TTD…But then you can enjoy the quite densely packed programme of the congress instead…

TTD10
OK, guys, now seriously: did you really think we’d do a Taste The Doom in Berlin which you can hardly attend because of some complicated ticket whatever without thinking of you? We are disappointed and deeply hurt! To make up we’ll do TTD10 the day before (same line-up as TAZ edition). Here’s the gist:

Date & Time:  Friday 19th April, 21.00hrs.
Place: Sputnik Kino, Südstern.
Limited to 32 places.
Ticket reservation by e-mail from 2nd April on. Pick up your tickets before 11th April in Neukölln!

We can already guarantee  an extraordinarily complete line-up tasting-wise. In other words, this one is for the (tasting)nerds. And even if you’re not a nerd, you don’t wanna miss this one!

Taste The Doom presents Slowlands

“Slowlands” – Berlin’s first whisky-only bar night

The crew behind Berlin’s succesful whisky event “Taste The Doom” is proud to announce their next endeavour, something above and beyond the call of duty to meet the massive demand for good whisky and slow, heavy and complex music. Thus they have initiated Berlin’s first whisky-only bar night, with a vast selection of hand-picked, top-notch Taste The Doom-approved Whiskies that will be accompanied by slow music in many shades. We’re stepping beyond the doom and will help you explore slowness in the form of electronic, experimental and perhaps even classical music, all marked with the notorious Taste The Doom-nodness factor and all while enjoying your favorite dram.

Complete selection will be announced step by step when we receive the bottles but we aim to present to you over 25 whiskies ranging from excellent to awesome without any compromise. There will be some of what we had at Taste The Doom, some new discoveries and maybe even limited supplies of some highest-end gems from our private collections. And of course in a price range that goes from inexpensive to appropriate!
Please note: as this is a whisky-only (yes, this means there will really only be whisky on offer) bar evening, there will be no pre-sale, so it won’t be sold out which again means that you can bring all your nerdy whisky-friends!
Slowlands will appear in different places and this first time it will take place at Fehrbellinerstrasse 6 (U2 Rosa-Luxemburg Platz) on 7th December 2012. Bottles are open from 9pm on until late.
