Old Potrero is a straight rye whiskey, which was recently entered into the 2023 Beverage Testing Institute Judging competition - an event that seeks to find some of the best whiskies in the world.
The judging panel were impressed with this product, and when asked to describe the tastes, they mentioned that the drink has notes of Rooibos! See their full tasting notes below:
“Raisin Bran, banana nut muffins, and apple pastries on rye dough fill the nostrils with a faintly earthy aroma of leather, saddle soap, and mink oil. A menagerie of caramelized spiced fruits fills the palate with dominant orange, mint, suede, chai, and Rooibos flavors. A sensational, flavor-packed Straight Rye that captures all of the complex spiciness, verdant earthiness, and nuance that rye grain is capable of delivering in a copper pot still whiskey.”
