Tasting Notes by Hollingworth

The title translates into 'Good, Good looking and Cheap' in Spanish, but I am afraid to say that this is only partially true.

Nose: Sweet Honey and dried fruit.

Body: Very thin, watery.

Palate: No discernible flavor besides tiny bit of oak but the sweet honey becomes present with a small splash of water.

Finish: Long.

I wanted to buy a cheap, good looking blended whisky which I could use to splash around while entertaining friends and also sip during the weekends.

The nose had a real sweet rich honey aroma but the body and palate was far too light and the rich amazing flavours promised in the nosing did not make an appearance. The finish was long and sweet.

For the price it's a good little treat, but I wouldn't pay any more for it. This will probably end up in my friends coke.
