Surprising and enjoyable
Also from Spencerfield Spirit Co Distillery
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.
Can be dispatched today.
Nose: Fragrant with notes of the coast, tangy, malty, honey, toffee. Youthful.
Palate: Rich, warming, malty, young and spirity.
Finish: Punchy, tangy.

Old sample bottle.
My son in law had a sample bottle from his parents liquor cabinet clean out. It could be 25 years old! I have not been a fan of blends.. until now. It was a truly delightful experience on ice. I'm going out to buy a bottle today!

Made with real sheep?
The bottle claims this is a blend of 16 single malt scotches. I have a rather vast collection of single malts, and the only way to achieve a taste this bad from fine single malts... is to actually dip a sheep in the blend. Question... do they also sell a remedy to get the terrible after taste from my mouth?

Easily the worst
It tasted like straight alcohol totally unbalanced and raw. One would have to best desperate to drink to imbibe a second session; Like a fool who walks through the waif of a friend's annouced flatulence just to attest, I swilled this s@!t whisky, again. Yeah, as terrible this try, too. I will never buy this rot gut whisky, again. What a waste of money/time.

A very nice blend with a difference - full fruity nose and interesting complex taste. First couple of tastes were lovely, but when I added ice it opened up some very strange flavours at first. I got cold black tea at one point, which was quite disappointing and took me half a bottle to shake. Happy to report that my fixation with this taste, and the taste itself, eventually passed. Once you taste something in a whisky it's hard to shake, but it did go. Don't be put off at all - this is very nice stuff indeed.

wonderful aroma, taste and a beautifull feeling when you drink it . But what you don't do is kill it with adding anything to it just have it neat ...

color: amber nose: spice & fruit, a very gentle smokiness palate: fairly complex, some fruit, floral notes, spice and smoke finish. medium length, spice & fruit dominate on the finish
Overall, this is an interesting and somewhat complex dram. If you like highland malts, you will like this one.

Perfume & floral, nice after shave maybe~tried it on a clean palate,just not anything to get all excited about.

Buying another 6 bottles after trying it...Its smooth

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.

26th May 2014
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.
