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.

This is a great 'go to' grain whisky that I buy regularly for mixing but it also tastes fabulous on its own, very smooth and goes down well with guests and also makes a great present for music friends.

Pathetic reviews below
This is a great example of a grain whisky. Sure, it's not the most complex sipper out there but it's more than good enough to be enjoyed neat and it's a great choice for someone who is new to whisky - think vanilla ice cream in a glass. It's creamy, smooth and moreish. I get the distinct impression that some of the reviewers below don't have the slightest clue of what a grain whisky is supposed to be. Either that or they are the kind of massive snobs that will have every bartender attempting to avoid them when they pop in for a dram.

Don't bother even if you are a house music fan
Nothing interesting about this blend. Thin, limited flavour palette, there are plenty of other far superior blends in the same price range. Even as a mixer I would chose something else.

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.

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

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''.
