Sheep Dip Blended Malt 8yo 700ml
Sheep Dip is what used to be referred to as a vatted malt: a blend of malt whiskies with no grain element. Crafted by Richard Paterson of Whyte & Mackay for the Spencerfield Spirits Company, the malts used are aged between 8 and 12 years old and are from good quality first-fill casks.
Colour: Rich, golden copper highlights.
Nose: Delicate and refined. Soft sensual floral notes arise in perfect harmony supported by an attractive array of complex fruit flavours. Melon, pear and orange with a hint of almonds conclude this profusion of charming nuances.
Taste: Finesse and elegance gives way to a majestic assertion of pure malty flavours drawn from the four distilling regions of Scotland. 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.
