Meee want some.  
Spencerfield Spirit Company is based in the magnificent surroundings of the Firth of Forth. It is a family run business, owned by Alex Nicol and his wife Jane. Nicol was previously a marketing director for Glenmorangie before he chose to start his own Whisky adventure and Spencerfield was born. The first product to come out of Spencerfield was the humorously named Sheep Dip, which has been followed up by Pig's Nose and variations of itself.
 
Sheep Dip is a blended malt brilliantly named after the potent liquid used to delouse sheep. The full-bodied flavour is achieved by weaving together sixteen different single malt Whiskies, aged between eight and twenty years, in specially selected first-fill oak casks. It has been described by Jim Murray as “young and sprightly”, a nod towards its unique taste and smooth qualities.

About the Flavor Spiral
What does Sheep Dip taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Sheep Dip and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
