Sheep Dip Islay Malt whisky
Τhe smokey edition of the famous Sheep Dip. Dark gold colour with amber highlights, produced at the southern part of the island of Islay, an island traditionally considered the center of the distilleries in Scotland, with the blend of outstanding single malts of the area. The intense smokeyflavour of this Islay malt is coming from drying the malt with peat smoke.
The peat flavour penetrates the malt, transferred to the alcohol and finally in the transformed spirit.Through the peatiness you feel the sea ,plants, and the saltiness of the Atlantic Ocean.
From UltimateSpiritChallenge 2015, where it won an award, the flavor wascharacterised as “baked peaches and tomatoes mixed with smokey notes meeting the underlying sweetness of the grain in the mouth creating a pleasant lasting balance”.

This outstanding blended whisky was created in 1977. It is blended by Richard Paterson the only third generation Master Blender in Scotland. Pig’s nose is the proof that a blended Scotch whiskydoes not need to be of old age, or very expensive in order to be good. The Pig’s Nose name hints at the soft, calm but with a rich character at the same time (smooth as a pig’s nose). Although the usual proportion of malt in whiskies is just 15%, Pig’s nose contains at least 40% malt. These malts come from the Lowlands, Speyside, and islay areas. It has a Colour clear gold colour, a soft rich nose with a butterscotch flavour, with wood and fresh pines notes. The aromatic character confirmed in the mouth where at the same time some spices appear at this mid body Scotish spirit.
