8O8 Whisky Bottling Note

Music producer TommyD and his team, along with help from Jonathan Driver, set out a create a whisky that could be enjoyed neat and as part of simple club serves and cocktails - the result is 8O8 Whisky, a grain whisky produced at the North British distillery. The name is inspired by the TR-808 drum machine. If you've ever listened to electronic music, you've almost certainly heard a TR-808 before.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Light honey, chocolate and vanilla notes - can be mixed with Red Bull, though the coconut water serve sounds more promising to us, however.

8O8 Whisky (808) Reviews

Ignore the snobbery below

All these "experts" below whining about the chill-filtering make me laugh. Chill filtering is a stylistic choice... It's not a sign of a poor whisky. There are some absolutely stunning whiskies around that are chill-filtered and some absolutely AWFUL ones that are not. As for this whisky... It's a good example of a single grain. What are people expecting exactly?? It's precisely what I imagined it would taste like... Easy-drinking, smooth and a great introduction for the whisky newcomer. Perfectly enjoyable for someone more experienced too. So many people in this comments section who need to cut out the snobbery. I can't imagine many of them have actually tried it... Very very decent. Ignore the snobs.

A must try

One of the nicest whiskies I’ve tried. Was apprehensive, but glad I took the plunge on trying this, not disappointed. Smooth tasting, great on its own and with a mixer.

Smooth, delicious, really good entry level Whisky!

Really good liquid! I’ve seen some negative reviews on here those people need to get down from their soap box and understand what the market is for this. I’ve drank and enjoyed everything from a 50yo Balvenie to a 10yo Glenmo. I get this is light and smooth for a whisky. But that’s the whole point, bringing new drinkers into the category. They will then move onto the bolder whiskies.

Tried too hard... Good name though!

Sorry, but it's a whisky you can only enjoy blended... propably good enough for all the wannabes out there

toffee that could be worse

I totally understand where the more "educated" reviewers here are coming from, 808 drum machine, chill filtered means nothing etc etc, but in a weird way I quite like it, not everything *has* to be for connoisseurs, usually I hate grain whisky, possibly better than some other undrinkable varieties

Great for Cleaning the Bathroom

Lots of fake reviews.

I smell a lot of fake reviews on here!
This is clearly marketed at the ''dumb millennial'' market that will drink anything with a good Instagram tag association. This isn't a whisky for connoisseurs but just another ''ill drink anything going'' spirit.
Also for those NOT in the no, there is nothing glamorous about chill filtering your whisky. ''Chill filtered for purity'' is exactly the same as saying ''Coloured using fake chemicals for a laugh''.

Amazing Whisky!

This is fast becoming my new favorite Whisky! Great with ice and very nice with Ginger Ale too! Would recommend to any Whisky drinker.

Not even worth the 0.5 of a star

complete tripe. 'chill filtered for purity' tells you all you need to know. named after the TR 808... err wot? might as well be named after the samsung K57b dual spin washing machine. A cheap grain whisky that was probably set aside for padding out blends. Aged for 'upto' 8 years, means nothing. I tried some in Selfridges, I had to chuckle at the audacity of it. If it wasn't for the hype it would be £12 Tesco value stuff, it's not even good marketing, I had to check the label to make sure Chabuddy G wasn't behind it.
