Old Masters "Freemason Whisky“
Nose: The perfect nose to experience blindfolded (how else ....?) as the depth of the fruit and grain - and their happy intermingling - is astonishing. A few under-ripe gooseberries here;
Taste: Light, graceful arrival with the early emphasis on a Speyside malt theme before some grain and oak kinks in; finish: pretty long with touches of cocoa though the fresh malt lingers;
Balance: a high quality blend that doesn't stint on the malt. The nose, in particular, is sublime.
Old Masters Masonic Gift, is a rich blend originally created for the Freemasons and has been carefully chosen from selected grain whiskies and specific Highland and Speyside malts. The perfect Masonic Gifts for Masons, Brothers, Masters or Past Masters.
