This distillery tour was one of the more restrictive tours we had visited. No cameras allowed anywhere in the distillery. Our guide was very hard to hear and she did not share anything distinctive about Talisker. It was not until we paid an extra amount to taste their master distillers special blends were we extremely pleased with our tour. Not... More

As somebody who is not a fan of whiskey, I almost didn't visit even though we were staying nearby. However, we decided to visit and weren't at all disappointed. The staff are helpful and knowledgable, with the result that I actually found a whiskey that I enjoyed.

We booked the Talisker tour for myself and my daughter (you have to be at least 7 years old to be able to visit it) so my wife stayed with the smaller ones. Whilst we were waiting for the tour the walked a little bit through the visitor center - not really interesting. You can buy a whole load of... More

This lovely distillery is set off the beaten track on the Isle of Skye, clearly signposted, and don’t miss an opportunity to eat in the Oyster shed at Carbost very close by. There are fantastic mountain views. We had a lunchtime tour for £7 booked in advance. The tour finishes with a tasting of the single malt and has a... More

We went on the tour - offered a sample in the bar area while waiting - I can't drink whiskey it burns my mouth, so donated it to the Talisker fan behind me. The tour was good. 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.
