Review No.231. Sheep Dip

Sheep Dip shares the same history as it sibling the Pig’s Nose.  Sheep Dip differs in that it is a blended malt and according to sources online it comprises of malts aged between 8 to 12 years old from the Highlands and Speyside.  Again, this is another blend that has caught my eye mainly due to the name.  Sheep Dip is some sort of chemical that is used to clean Sheep of parasites.  Not quite appealing.  This is another blend that is not so big in the UK but popular in the US and you will be able to find it online for under £30.  So not cheap as this falls into the price bracket of some single malts and some good quality single malts when on offer.

1 – not to my preference

2 – tastes fine but does not excite me

3 – more to my liking and would revisit occasionally

4 – very much to my liking and would consider as a regular feature on my whisky shelf

5 – permanent feature on my whisky shelf
