BHAKTA 1981 Armagnac

BHAKTA 1981 Armagnac

The pure distillation of the year 1981 

One of the world’s rarest Armagnac vintages — and a personal favorite of the BHAKTA Spirits Team. BHAKTA 1981 shows prune, vanilla custard, baked pear, and Granny Smith apple on the nose, followed by a spicy and creamy palate of dark chocolate cake and hazelnuts. In history, 1981 was defined by the launch of MTV, the debut of Nintendo’s “Mario” character, and the appointment of Sandra Day O’Connor as the first female Supreme Court Justice.

How to drink it

“In this vintage paradigm, every release is special, limited in quantity — there’s only so much of any given spirit made in any given year.”
“You don’t have to love brandy to love this. . . Terrific sipping and thus an epic preview of things to come from the nascent producer.”
