A leaner Cognac, notes of black tea, delicate caramel and hints of coco combine to create a lighter Cognac than most may expect.
Aged for a minimum of 2 years in French Limousin Oak and with 25% of its grapes coming from Grand Champagne and 75% coming from Petite Champagne Tre Kors (3 crosses) is a lighter bodied Cognac with nice spice notes almost making it what Rye Whiskey is to Bourbon. Black tea flavors are robust and full up front and linger nicely. While hints of caramel and a touch of coco soften up the finish and round it out. Once known as 3 Stars, the name was changed in the 1900s when Norway (The native Country of the Bache Gabrielsen family) started Prohibition. By changing the name to 3 crosses, it allowed the Cognac to be sold for medicinal purposes.
