Sheep Dip, despite its iconoclastic name, is a genuinely great whisky.
The name came about because British farmers have long referred to whisky as Sheep Dip. There was a time when farmers distilled their own home-made whisky and in order to avoid paying taxes to the revenue man hid the whisky in barrels marked Sheep Dip.
Jim Murray describes Sheep Dip in his 2006 Whisky Bible as Young and sprightly like a new-born lamb, this enjoys a fresh, mouthwatering grassy style with a touch of spice. Maligned by some but to me a clever accomplished vatting of alluring complexity
