Ultimate Beverage Challenge 96 points - (UB Collection,Chairman’s Trophy,Tried & True Award)- Roasted peaches and tomato aromas mingle with notes of campfire smoke on the expressive nose. Flavors in the mouth are thoroughly smoky with sweet undertones of sugared grains, creating a pleasant balance that is long lasting..March/2015
Whisky Advocate 91 points - Fresh morning blooms in the flower shop, soft summer fruits of cantaloupe, nectarine, peach, apricot, scallop-shaped madeleines, light vanilla, and dry, unobtrusive spices on this blend of sixteen single malt whiskies. Plunge into a pool of honey, orange, mango, vanilla, and sugary-sweet candy, shot through with little darts of spice. The finish is relatively short, with sweet pastries and light pepper, but I think ewe will like this. Reviewed by: Jonny McCormick (Winter 2018).January/2019
An old West Country term, British farmers have long referred to whisky as Sheep Dip - an insecticide used to delouse sheep prior to sheering. There was a time when farmers distilled their own ‘home made’ whisky and in order to avoid paying taxes to the revenue man, they’d hide it in barrels marked Sheep Dip’. Sheep Dip’s Islay Blended Malt Whisky is a unique blend of several single Islay malt whiskies, all of them distilled and matured on the southernmost Hebridean Island of Islay, one of Scotland’s oldest centers of distilling.
