Sheep Dip Islay Blended Malt. Image courtesy Ian Macleod Distillers.This Blended Malt uses whiskies from several of the distilleries on Islay, and as one might expect, the nose is smoky and phenolic with hints of creosote, heather, honey, and vanilla in the background. The taste is smoky and peppery with a good peatiness balanced by honey, vanilla, and caramel candy notes. The finish is long and smoky with hints of caramel candy in the background. (August, 2018)
