from Boise, ID United States
Old Potrero 18th Century Style Single Malt Rye is not what I could call a recognizable rye whiskey by today's standards. I get the impression that they were very faithful to their best guess as to the recipe, method of distillation, and barrel characteristics but the spirit is so different from what we drink today that it is a bit off-putting. In my opinion some of the congeners are similar to those found in inferior distiller's products - think plastic bottle college alcohol. Maybe it is from the barrels. Not mixable either. I am not sure if I would purchase their other products, even if I could find them, if this bears any resemblance to those other whiskeys.
