Very good tour of immaculate distillery. Young lad who showed us round was funny and informative and knew his stuff. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. It was amazing to see how they make whisky. And it is perfect to stop by the oyster farm close by for lunch.

Interesting tour of the distillery. Might be worthwhile booking online to save the long wait, as it's very popular.

Very entertaining tour from Lorne (not sure of spelling). Great smells and many interesting facts and a taste of the 10 year old for £7. After a few previous dodgy experiences at other distilleries I found the whisky prices in the shop here were actually cheaper than elsewhere, especially with the £3 voucher from the tour.

Toured the distillery and had a wee dram. This peaty Scotch is delicious and the tour was quite good. Enjoyed the afternoon there and the drive along the way was gorgeous.

The Talisker Distillery tour is something you shouldn't miss if you visit Isle of Skye. Unlike some of the other reviews, our tour guide (sorry, I forget his name) was highly knowledgeable and entertaining. The tour took us through the whole process, including the malting process that imparts that wonderful smokiness to Talisker Whisky. The single malt 10 year old... More

Even if I'm not a Whisky drinker, it's been very interesting to have a look behind. It's worth it to take the long way up to skye.

We're on a Whisky tour across all the Whisky regions and having done Glenfiddich yesterday expected Talisker to do better, but they did worse. Glenfiddich gave us a tour with personality, however today just felt like a mass production tour with no passion for the subject. With just one of the Whiskys to taste after the tour I learnt more...

The tour guide was local and involved and the tasting at the end of the tour was helpful to a non-whisky drinker like me!

We went to see what sort of malt whiskies they had, and the variety was infinite. We bought a few different ones in presentation packs for gifts.
