Fodor's Review

The only distillery on the Isle of Skye, Talisker produces a sweet, light single malt that has the typical peaty aroma of island whiskies, but is a bit less intense. Robert Louis Stevenson called Talisker "the king of drinks," and the inhabitants of Skye are very proud of it. Classic tours take about 45 minutes, while two-hour tasting tours are usually available Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Book ahead, as the tours are very popular.
