Colour: Rich, golden copper highlights. Nose: Delicate and refined. Soft sensual floral notes arise in perfect harmony supported by an attractive array of complex fruit flavours. Melon, pear and orange with a hint of almonds conclude this profusion of charming nuances. Taste: Finesse and elegance gives way to a majestic assertion of pure malty flavours drawn from the four distilling regions of Scotland. Each area forges and makes its own inimitable contribution to this outstanding pure malt - the main accent being expressed from the Highlands and Speyside Valleys.
Wine Enthusiast 94 points - The silly name of this delicious, hard-to-put-down blended Scotch supposedly is derived from the days “when farmers hid their home-made whisky from the nosey excise officers in barrels marked ‘Sheep Dip.’” Made with a blend of 16 single malts from the four major whisky regions, this has an intense apple aroma and flavor, overlaid with a faint curl of smoke. The earthy smokiness grows on the finish, with intriguing dry and savory notes, like baker’s chocolate and brine. Pair this with crumbly aged cheeses.  (Feb 2013)

Ultimate Beverage Challenge 90 points - Bright copper/bronze color. Aroma features malted milk balls, marshmallow, pine, black pepper and dried herbs. In the mouth, the flavor profile highlights the malted grain and semisweet oakiness, which borders on vanilla extract. Aftertaste is medium-lon (Mar 2012)

Producer
Surrounded by rolling fields of wheat and barley, whilst overlooking the Firth of Forth and monumental Forth Rail Bridge, lies Spencerfield Farmhouse. Steeped in fascinating heritage, the 16th century Fife farmhouse is home to the Spencerfield Spirit Company and its unique, iconoclastic collection of exceptional spirits. Set up by former marketing director of Glenmorangie, and whisky aficionado, Alex Nicol, Spencerfield Spirits prides itself on being a close-knit, family run business. A business where Alex and his wife Jane are whole-heartedly dedicated to providing a quality niche alternative to the more conventional mainstream brands. Their flagship product, the irreverently named, yet seriously flavoursome Sheep Dip was developed in 1970, with its stablemate, the seductively smooth Pig’s Nose being launched three years later. Both award winning whiskies have recently been joined by the refreshingly indulgent Edinburgh Gin and the 1990 Old Hebridean, a first vintage for Sheep Dip.
