  • We went there because we were interested in a tour through the distillery. However we found even more than that. Our guide Gordon was a really great guide and funny guy. He knew a whole lot about Talisker and Whisky. The standard tour will cost you the usual 10 Pounds and is sufficient if you ask me. You see almost everything of the distillery and you get to taste the 'Talisker Storm' at the end of the tour. The Shop is pretty neat too.
  • We visited Talisker in the month of June. Took the distillery tour. The girl who gave the tour was new but had good knowledge about the place and answered all the questions. Also not to forget had amazing sense of humour. The staff at shop was very helpful and polite. Had a good time.
