Old Potrero Rye in Older SanFrancisco

I travel frequently to San Francisco and many times I grab a drink and a meal at Pompei’s Grotto. I have been coming to this restaurant since 1995 and it has always be a friendly and comfortable spot in Fisherman’s Wharf.

What made this journey made even better is that I got to try a Rye Whiskey that I have never had before. This drink, Old Potrero, which surprises me in its pleasantly soapy front end and nose followed by an well balanced and not too spicy tail. Made by Anchor Steam Breweries, it actually had some characteristics of a fine Scotch ( I confirmed this by trying the “Kentucky Hug” method of taste tasting.)

Give yourself a treat and try it.
