I have been on a few distillery tours but I don't fault the guide. He had his script well rehearsed and was well spoken. He consistently opened it up to questions but our group didn't engage in the opportunities making this a very dry tour.

I'm not a big whiskey fan, but the tour was interesting and informative, and our group of four all enjoyed the tour and the samples. Note at one point in the tour, the boiling room I guess, gets very warm, so be prepared for that....More

It was an interesting tour with a friendly guide. The free samples were good as they were types we cannot get in the states. The gift shop has a lot of branded merchandise. The cafeteria food was fine as well.
