Sheep Dip Blended Malt Scotch Whisky
Sheep Dip is a small batch of handcrafted, premium blended malt Scotch whisky. It marries together single malt whiskies from around Scotland in an enigmatically refined blend that packs plenty of punch. The whiskies are aged between eight and twenty-one years in quality “first fill wood,” each adding unique characteristics to produce an exceptional product.
Sheep Dip takes its name from the English farming term for an insecticide once used on British sheep farms. There was a time when the farmers would distill their own whiskies and store them in barrels marked “SD” to avoid expensive distilling taxes, and thus, the term “Sheep Dip” became slang for whiskey in the region.
The nose reveals coastal notes with a tangy character alongside malty, honey, and toffee aromas. On the palate, it offers a rich and warming experience with malty and spicy flavors. The finish is long, punchy, and tangy.
