Sheep Dip Islay Blended Scotch Whisky

1 item left

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.

Its typical smoky character is derived from drying the barley over a traditional peat, prior to distilling. You will notice the distinctive presence of iodine, seaweed and salt which comes from its long maturation in oak barrels next to the Atlantic ocean. When drinking, add a small splash of spring water to open up all this whisky has to offer.

Excellent

Fast service , thank you !

Best bourbon I’ve had in quite a while.

Reminds me of Old Rip Van Winkle 10 year.
I’ve been searching for this nice since 2016 and surprising I found it online @Chip’s. Great customer service, fast ( and inexpensive) shipping. Bottles arrived well packed and secure. This is my new go to shop to order liquor!

Thumbs up

Very Smooth

Great, smooth drinking on the rocks. One of my favorites.

Lovely

Had a nice dram of the Henry McKenna and it was too harsh. Added a bit of water and some ice to mellow out the whisky and it was much more approachable. In the end a lovely drink with hints of cola and spice. Highly recommended!
