I knew nothing about Whiskey so found it quite interesting - especially about the taste and the peat/water process. This is whiskey drinkers... More

We went on a late-afternoon tour; the last one of the day. Our tour guide recited what he had probably recited dozens of times that day and hundreds of times that month. He didn't pay attention to whether or not his microphone was working (which it often wasn't), or whether people were listening or not (which maybe 1/3 of the... More

Well if you love the whiskey, just go there. It was so satisfying to see the place the whiskey gets made the one you have enjoyed for so long. If you are new to Talisker even then it is a great place to go to given the location. The tour could have been better and seemed a bit hurried to... More

We recently visited Skye on a really horrible windy raining day and this proved to be a great indoor stop off! Informative and well run and great product at the end... Would say go even like me your not a great scotch fan but enjoy a wee dram.

Very busy, that was the first thing that struck me. We were given a tour time for roughly an hour after we arrived. It was very informative and I still love the smell! Purchased a Talisker 10 afterwards and would urge anybody to come and visit, it's great :)

A very good place if You're interested in Scotch Whisky and details how is it done; we've been here in bad weather time so not a best time for outdoor impressions... but a distillery itself worth visiting. Please doublecheck ticket availability BEFORE driving there :)

Unfortunately no time to do the tour; but visited the store. Of course tried and bought a Talisker. Decided to buy the limited Distillers Edition. A very good try. The road to the Distillery is one to remember! Go ahead and enjoy.

Beautiful area and so worth the visit! The chap who gave the tour was brilliant and it is definitely one of the best distillery tours I have been on with great whisky.

Waterfront Distillery....had a great tour and got some merchandise which is of good quality. For my wife who is not a scotch enthusiast, she enjoyed learning how the water of life is made and even enjoyed the little taste at the end. We drove over from Inverness and it is a lovely drive along Loch Ness.

We enjoyed an excellent tour at Talisker thanks to Laura, who took the small group there at 10.30am around the distillery, explaining all the processes. The smells were wonderful, and of course at the end there was the bonus of a taste of one of their malts. You can also taste some of the other malts available in the shop.... More
