Perhaps no man (or woman) more greatly represents the glamour and complexity of the Gilded Age better than John D. Rockefeller. Born into a poor family in upstate New York, the scrappy Rockefeller saw untapped opportunity in oil refining, founding the Standard Oil Company in 1870. He retired in 1897, a vintage found in this bottle. Indulge in this barrel of BHAKTA 50, and discover the richness within. 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.
