One of my favorite whiskeys so a stop at Talisker was a must. The location is breathtaking and the tour what we expected. Enjoyed the tasting room and being the only distillery on the Isle of Skye it is worth a visit. The staff was very helpful in letting us know places to eat and visit while we waited for the tour to start. If you are on a schedule good to book the tour ahead of time as we did have a wait but it gave us time to explore and we were not on a schedule the day we visited.
A very good tour guide showed us around - for a fairly reasonable price. Some very interesting smells in and around the distillery! We didn't book but didn't have to wait too long - we nipped up the road for a quick coffee at the pub while we waited.
The distillery whisky tour was the 3rd one for me and I got information more than the others. The tour guide (if I'm not making a mistake his name is Chris) was very helpful and he was the guy who told us we can get a whisky passport with which 12 distillery tours would be free. I used that passport thereafter. He went through the process meticulously and Talisker was the only place that we had permission to take pictures from the warehouse.
Nice relaxed distillery tour with an entertaining guide, as well the full tasting we did (10 yrs, 57 north, 25 year e.g.). Relatively large gift shop. Smells nice already at the parking lot! The Old Inn is a good alternative for staying nearby.
For any whisky enthusiast, there's no question about whether to visit Talisker, only when. During the busy seasons make sure to book in advanced as it can quickly fill up. Guides around the distillery are knowledgeable and definitely passionate a out the distillery and it's history. You walk through the distillery discovering the different processes involved in the creation of Talisker, finishing with a tasting at the end. A definite must see for all.
