This is one of the three distilleries we visited while in Scotlant. The tour was very informative and our guide was very knowledgeable and fun. The tasting was agreeable as well, although I don't know much about whisky. Worth a visit if you are staying in Carbost.

Very interesting and well organised tour of the distillary. Discovered that I don't like whiskey....lol Has a great gift shop. I bought a few pressies for the whiskey lovers back home. Well worth a visit if you are on Skye.

A most interesting tour . The information about the process and how things were done was detailed and informative , and the tour group was small enough that you could easily ask questions of the guide without inconveniencing others on the tour . We enjoyed ourselves immensely .

Talisker distillery put on a very good tour. Limited to around 20 people on each tour. Our guide's information was clear and she was open to questions. In noisier parts of the distillery she used a microphone to ensure all members of the party could hear easily. A tasting of the produce at the end of the tour was of... More

If you don't reserve a guided tour in advance, you might have to wait an hour. The tour is interesting, but if you don't understand well English it can be difficult, as the guided tours are only in English. In every room we visited, though, written translations of the main information were available in several languages.

Brilliant visitor centre, the distillery is in a pretty spectacular location. Don't really need to say much about the whisky, it is one of the top single malts available.

If you visit Isle of Skye and you like whiskey, this distillery is a must-see place. Nice distillery area if the weather is not rainy like it was during our visit. Our son is so young that we couldn´t take a tour in distillery.

My mom and I both signed up to be Friends on the website before coming so we got our tours for free. In fact, it gets you free tours at 12 different locations. At Talisker we found the tour interesting, but there were a lot of parts we couldn't hear, even when our guide used a microphone. We would have... More

Visited four distilleries on a recent trip to Scotland, and this was actually my least favorite. Small reception / tasting room that was packed with tourists. They will give you a wee taste of two wiskey's free of charge even if you don't do the tour, which is nice. But staff seemed fed up (possibly because it was so busy,... More

A fascinating tour of the distillery where the art of making Talisker malt whisky is explained by a knowledgeable guide. And you get to sample a 'wee dram' at the end of the tour. Probably best saved for a 'rainy' day. While there make sure you visit the Oyster Shed - the freshest of shell fish!
