Whisky or Whiskey
Interesting fact… Sheep Dip whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Sheep Dip whiskey, instead of whisky.
Sheep Dip Bottling Note
A great whisky made from 16 malt whiskies aged from 8 to 21 years. Jim Murray describes Sheep Dip as "young and sprightly". Great retro packaging too. The only thing is, the picture of the sheep on the bottle doesn't actually look like a sheep, it actually looks like an angry spaniel with horns.
In stock, worldwide delivery available.

Nose: Fragrant with notes of the coast, tangy, malty, honey, toffee. Youthful.
Palate: Rich, warming, malty, young and spirity.
Finish: Punchy, tangy.
Surprising and enjoyable
Perfume & floral, nice after shave maybe~tried it on a clean palate,just not anything to get all excited about.

more than young and sprightly IMHO
this vatted malt is deep and complex. with freshness, fruit, vanilla, baking spices, a nice sherry blanket an a very faint whiff of peat smoke. Price performer and any occasion drinker. embodies the goal of a good blend: balanced and competently easy to drink.

I won a bottle in a "nearest the pin" on a round of golf once. It was probably the smoothest whiskey i've ever had.

one of the smoothest whisky's I've ever tried. taking a bottle over to my friend, John's, this afternoon as a gift. I turned him onto this a year ago, and he fell in love with it, Scotsman that he is.

Sweet, fruity and pleasant.
Tasted scotch 30 years ago and hated it. Tried Sheep Dip and LOVE IT. Bought a bottle and when it's gone, i'll buy another.

For a vatted malt you would expect a little more complexity, and the obvious over use of coloring is a turn off, but it is definitely tasty.

I received a bottle of Sheep Dip as a birthday gift. Never one to turn a blind eye to an unknown, I gave it a try tonight.
Dang - not bad. Far smoother than I expected, decent flavor. A bit on the light side, my first thought was, "where's the body?"
Regardless, an easy sip. Something to consider for a generic house Scotch. Sent

The reviewer wrote --> Jim Murray describes Sheep Dip as "young and sprightly".
Obviously he's hung up on the fact that it's a malted scotch and not a sacret single malt, typical single malt snob.
Anyway, nothing could be farther from the truth, it does NOT taste "young" not in the least.
It's a great scotch better than most single malts twice the price, these reviewrs are bimbos (at best)

A fresh, innovative vatted malt.
An absolutely classic example of why young vatted malts are things of beauty. Sheep Dip is quite unlike anything I've ever tasted before, it's surprising and exciting, a fresh, sprightly, grassy young-tasting whisky. I'd recommend it to anyone, from the whisky novice to the connoisseur.

This is not a five-star whisky, but in terms of value-for-money it is certainly one of the best ones out there. Wonderfully integrated flavours of honey, toffee and chocolate shavings, with hints of good quality sherry and subtle whispers of smoke and peat. Beautifully rounded and pleasant. Bit of heat in it, that's true, but it's certainly not off-putting. I'm still kicking myself for not picking up a bottle of Old Hebridean.
