WE 94 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - The silly name of this delicious, hard-to-put-down blended Scotch supposedly is derived from the days “when farmers hid their home-made whisky from the nosey excise officers in barrels marked ‘Sheep Dip.’” Made with a blend of 16 single malts from the four major whisky regions, this has an intense apple aroma and flavor, overlaid with a faint curl of smoke. The earthy smokiness grows on the finish, with intriguing dry and savory notes, like baker’s chocolate and brine. Pair this with crumbly aged cheeses.
The color is a rich, golden with copper highlights. The nose is delicate and refined with soft sensual floral notes. Hints of melon, pear and orange are present, followed by a long lingering finish. Rated 90+
