Just got an email back. Nothing allowed from Talisker...
Too bad, although I'd still suggest to bring a camera. Company policy from people who sit at desks all day is one thing, but... just ask again when you're there, about to go on a tour of the distillery. Maybe the tour guide at the distillery will turn a blind eye. No harm in asking again.
