"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." -Kara Newman

"Eccentrically named, yet of an unsurpassed quality, Sheep Dip was once (back in the 80's) the best selling whisky in Harrods. A whisky whose distinctively full-bodied flavor is only reached through weaving together sixteen different single malt whiskies from Scotland's four regions, aged between eight and twenty years, in specially selected first-fill oak casks. 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." -The Importer
