  • Doesn't add up; a very authentic whisky that is mainly promoted as the ingredient that goes into the blend famous grouse. I don't know, but that doesn't seem logical. What is nice is that they have an aroma wall where you can test your nose blind. Whisky isn't shockingly good, pretty flat and not so characteristic. The peated glenturret was nice though (not too much PPM) FB; MasterYourMalts
  • We enjoyed our tour of the distillery. The tour guide was friendly and informative.
  • Nice location, plenty of parking. Busy tours which is great to see,I do recommend booking to avoid dissapointment, the guides still had time to answer any and all questions. Lots of knowledge about the history of the site and obviously the distilling of whisky.
  • A bit too touristic distillery tour and lacked the authenticity you get in a small distillery tour. We waited for quite a while as big bus tour groups seem to have priority over individuals. Tour was well scripted and guide knew the script well. Booked the additional tasting session which was a disappointment. Guide gave us 5 minute overview and then left us. Before leaving he made a big number how he can't leave the bottles on display as we might just top up.
  • Loved hearing about the whiskey making process. Our guide was very friendly. Fine tasting experience was worth it. Couldn't decide what to buy in the gift shop, too many good choices.
