Bhakta is changing the game once more, bringing together two worlds for a spirit that is both ancient and brand new. A marriage of Armagnacs from vintages between 1868 and 1970, then finished in Islay casks for a whisper of smoke, this complex spirit is simply sublime and unlike anything on your shelf right now.

It is said that Winston Churchill enjoyed a "mouthwash" of whisky each morning. Whatever his daily routine, there is no doubt that Churchill was witty, savvy, and a visionary. He became Britain's Prime Minister in 1940, just after the start of WWII. His tenacity, stirring speeches, and unwavering resolve made him one of the chief architects of Allied victory. The bold flavors of this barrel would convert the British Bulldog himself into an Armagnac enthusiast. A nose of aged leather and smoky cigar lounges melts into a palate of peaty creosote that softens into floral, even spicy notes of mulled fruit and roasted nuts. A persistent finish of peat and nutmeg linger on the palate.
