Old Potrero

Old Potrero
18th Century Style Whiskey
Alcohol, vanilla, oak and fresh plastic. Something warm and soft, almost like musk. There's also notes of creamy soda icing sugar and a little herb & spice.
Sweet, oily and honeyed with some oak and spice. Quite chewy. A few seconds in the mouth and it's all sweet and fizzy - Wizz Fizz :)
Very long. Initially chewy and mouth watering then woody and quite dry.
When I first opened this whisky it was dominated by very unusual off notes which I'm beginning to recognise as the result of a "wide cut". A very distinct whisky which is hard to love and equally hard to forget. Try a freshly opened bottle for the full experience.
