Sheep Dip’s an old friend of mine.
The tongue-in-cheek name attracted me to this blended malt & was rewarded with an easy going honeyed experience augmented by a rich maltiness.
An Islay version caught my eye – a kind reader generously sent a sample.
The peat smoke was evident – but rather subdued.
More entertaining on the palate. Crisp, sweet & drying.
It’s on the finish that Islay Sheep Dip came alive for me. A gorgeous explosion of smokey goodness danced merrily away to a lip smacking finalé.
Another entertaining brand from the Ian MacLeod stable.
