Barrel 38 “Washington” is named for George Washington, who after leading the Continental forces to victory against British rule, was compelled to give up the quiet life of a genteel farmer to become the first president of a fledgling country which we now call home. Crafted from eight different vintages, BHAKTA 50 “Washington” is a well-balanced palate of licorice, pepper, and orange blossom with a finish of earthy dried fruits and nuts. 

An astonishing blend of Islay-finished Armagnac crafted from eight rare vintages: 1868 – 1878 – 1900 – 1947 – 1956 – 1963 – 1965 – 1970. With this barrel, we toast one of the Founding Fathers who set the tone for a nation.

About: BHAKTA 50 Year inaugural release includes 38 unique barrels, each with a blend of 8 vintages from 1868 to 1970. The blend is then finished in Islay Whisky casks for two weeks, creating an exquisite marriage.

Vintages from 1868 might have bold notes of caramel, while 1878 draws from new distillates and presents completely differently. Our vintages vary by barrel, as do the proofs of the finished product. The peerless taste of BHAKTA is recognizable in all, but connoisseurs will recognize the nuances and flavor variety in each barrel. You'll have to taste them all to find out...
