Sheep Dip Scotch Whisky
Sheep Dip Whisky harks back to an era when farmers distilled their ‘homeade’ whisky and hid it in barrels marked ‘sheep dip’ to avoid paying tax to the revenue man. Farmers’ merchants continued the rule bending tradition by entering cases of whisky as ‘sheep dip’ on the farmers’ bills, continuing to pull the wool over the eyes of the tax man.
Where to Buy:
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.
Distinct barely sugar sweetness and essential blended scotch hint of smoke
Slightly leathery, fudge and vanilla. Warming finish with a puff of smoke.
