What's in a name? Sheep Dip whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Sheep Dip whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Fragrant with notes of the coast, tangy, malty, honey, toffee. Youthful.
Palate: Rich, warming, malty, young and spirity.
Finish: Punchy, tangy.
Sheep dip is smooth plenty of flavor but not too much to overpower each other. Only not giving ten as i have not tasted all others to compare. More of an island taste than Speyside but definitely on its own
Just tried at the 'Durham Food Festival' , one of the best whiskies I've tasted. Wish I had time to try others but was bit busy doing cookIng demos!!!!
Forgot to rate it.....
Tasted this at the Spirit of Christmas fair in London, really lovely, and I think the label does look reasonably sheep-like :) However, would someone be kind enough to explain what the heck 'gristy' means. Have just asked a food taster, they couldn't explain...its on practically every whisky review on this website, but the internet is devoid of a definition. thanks!!
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.
great taste, very smooth, will definatly buy again
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.
