Our tour guide was new (he had only been giving tours for two weeks) but he did a pretty good job explaining all the things that went into the whisky distilling process. Could have been a little more in depth, but it was overall very interesting (especially since it was my first distillery tour). The tasting at the end was... More

I love tasting the different whiskeys and wanted to do at least one tour. Interesting but a bit rushed and hard to hear as it was a big tour group. Friendly staff.

We had never taken a tour at Talisker before and can only compare it with one of the other distilleries owned by the group, Glen Ord. Our guide was very knowledgeable and interesting, shame the foreign visitors on the same tour didnt listen and spoke over him spoiling it for others. Talisker is not as big as Glen Ord so... More

Lovely distillery and a tour well presented by the guide Hugh. Nice tasting of Storm, and at a request of the shop staff we were allowed a tasting of another with a view to buy with no problems. Many thanks.

The tour lasts a less than an hour. You learn how they make the whiskey. Sadly, bottling is now done elsewhere. No photography permitted. At £8 a head a little pricey although you do get a badge and a £3 off a bottle voucher!

Wonderful experience, no tour the day we visited because of annual maintenance, but more than made up with a personal tasting. Marvelous!

My other half is a big fan of Talisker whisky and now I am too. he tout was disappointing. The tour was led by someone with a monotone. We felt it was rushed and that a lot of the areas where closed off. Nothing compared to all the other whisky tours we did. However, the tasting was great, it was... More

I found the tour very disappointing. Tour guide was very monotone and could not muster any enthusiasm for the content. I was also disappointed to discover that they no longer use local water or local barley or local malting. I felt that it is not a real distillery anymore and certainly not traditional. Very disappointed.....
