Soft floral notes supported by an attractive array of complex fruit flavours. Melon, pear and orange with a hint of almonds. Taste ~ Finesse and elegance gives way to an assertion of pure malty flavours, drawn from the four distilling regions of Scotland. The main accent being expressed from the Highland and Speyside valleys. However, a subtle hint of Islay can be detected on the aftertaste as it slowly ebbs into a classic, pleasing finish. Sheep Dip is a blended malt woven using up to 16 single malts, primarily from the Highlands of Scotland, smoothly blended with delicate Speyside and smoky Islay malts. But why call it Sheep Dip? Farmers have long referred to whisky as ‘Sheep Dip’. It was a way of disguising their own ‘homemade’ whisky from the revenue man, they’d hide their whisky in barrels marked ‘Sheep Dip’ The excise men didn’t dare sample such a potent liquid. Each malt in Sheep Dip contributes unique characteristics to produce the exceptional, multi-award winning blended malt Scotch whisky. In the words of Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2011, our Sheep Dip is ‘Young and sprightly like a new-born lamb, a fresh, mouth-watering grassy style with a touch of spice, a cleverly accomplished vatting of alluring complexity.” There was a time many years ago when farmers distilled their own “Home Made” whisky and in order to avoid paying taxes to the revenue man, they’d hide it in barrels marked ‘Sheep Dip’. The excise men were reluctant to sample such a potent liquid!
