Talisker Distillery is the only distillery on the Isle of Skye, set on the shores of Loch Harport, against the views of the Cuillins. Visit the distillery to know and take sips of its alluring, sweet, full-bodied single malt whisky. The distillery operates five stills; two wash stills and three spirit stills. All the stills use worm tubs (condensing coils) rather than a modern condenser, which are believed to give the whisky a "fuller" flavor.

Talisker Distillery, Carbost Reviews - Write a Review
my family enjoy a good whiskey and whilst they had enjoyed many whiskey distilleries around Scotland, this was the least enjoyable as the staff there weren't very polite and had no intentions of serving us. the place only had 2 other customers when we were there and they had well of 5 staff in the area and none bothered to approach us. Hard not to feel that unless we have showed commitment to buy their whisky before they will even bother attending to us. Worst experience I've had in Isle of Skye.
Worthwhile tasting tour. Booked ahead. Sat in a lovely room with 6 options. Had an hour to taste and chat.
Whisky here is great, offering some very nice smoky/peated whiskies from the Scottish isles. Big bummer with the tasting room is that there is absolutely no seating and they don't offer formal tastings. Why would someone drive all the way to a distillery and not drink the product? Also very full of tourists compared to the Islay distilleries. Good whisky, bad place to visit.
Great whisky as I always loved their whiskey and bought 5 bottles especially the distillery bottling only is not available else where. But their staff does not seem interested in helping or want to show off their whisky. Definitely not welcoming.
Interesting tour of the distillery. Recommend calling ahead to book as people were being turned away when we were there. If you sign up online in advance as a 'friend of the malts' (google it), the tour and tasting is free. The tastings are not as generous as others I've visited (eg Oban) but can't complain as it was free with the membership.
