“Interesting way to spend an hour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

We had intended to go on one of the boat trips but arrived to find that the crew were taking a well-earned break so we toddled next door to the distillery and signed up for the tour. Not being fans of the peatier whiskies we opted for the single shot of 10yr old Tobermory at the end of the tour.
I wasn't too impressed with the rather dated and (at times) cheesy film and question it's necessity, however the following tour was really interesting and our tour guide (who I believe was the manager's wife) was very knowledgable and enthusiastic about the whole business.
At the end we not only received our taster of the 10 yr old malt but she also allowed us to try the 15yr old, the 19yr old AND the Ledaig. Great value for us and would highly recommend doing this tour outside of the main tourist season.

“Great little attraction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

Good value. Very enthusiastic and information guide. Worth it just for a taste of Tobermory's finest single malts. Takes about an hour so easy to fit into your itinerary!

“well worth doing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

We went when the distillery was not in use but it was still a great tour and the tasting at the end was well worth it - definitely sign up for the 2 drink taster which is an extra £6 or so - otherwise you only get to taste the mediocre whisky. The other one is magic in a bottle (of which we bought 3!) 10yr peaty goodness. YUM.

“Excellent tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

We really enjoyed our tour of the distillery. Our guide was very knowledgeable, and had clearly not just rehearsed a speech - she knew her stuff and answered all our questions. The whiskey is pretty darned good too.
