Customer Rating

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.


Sheep Dip Blended Malt Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Notes (Richard Paterson)

    • 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.

    One of my go-to scotches. I have it in a flask in my golf bag and my golfing buddies love a nip at the turn and, without knowing, would compare it to any of the more famous and expensive single malts.

    This whisky doesn’t have the harshness (or kick) that some display. It is smooth, velvety and very drinkable. I like it allot

    Initially I thought this whiskey tasted watered down as it didn't give the kick I'm normally used to. After a few more sips however I can see the appeal. I would say it has a sherry-like quality.

    "Nose" (undiluted) Malty and sherried. "Palate" (undiluted) Soft, sweet start. Malty, cantaloupe, melon and some light tangerine. Good quality flavored Oloroso sherry appears late. "Finish" (undiluted) A little drying malt while the sherry gathers strength and a fine line of sea salt and pepper tang at the very end.

  • Purcy Shaun Kemlo Flaherty 3 April 2012

    A Beautiful nose, dried fruit warm, walnuts, hot Leather, sherry, syrup and a hint of citrus, just the right amount of complexity, sweet and gentle on arrival; soft, amber malt sherry, culminates, in sea salts and warm peppered trace. Rating: 95/100

    I had a bottle of this at my in-laws because no one would drink it. Got it years ago and liked it. Got a fresh bottle this weekend and it is as good as I remembered. I think this will stay in my cabinet rotation permanently. I've been a fan of Mr. Paterson and his work for a while. Value on this is excellent.

    The whisky that has become a firm favourite. Great whisky and a great price

  • Jason's Scotch Whisky Reviews 12 November 2010

    Nose (undiluted): Malty and sherried. Palate (undiluted): Soft, sweet start. Malty, cantaloupe, melon and some light tangerine. Oloroso sherry appears late. Finish (undiluted):A little drying malt, sherry gathers strength and fine line of sea salt and pepper tang at the very end. Bottom line: Lots of sweet Speyside flavors, no peat or smoke.
