Wine Enthusiast 92 points - BEST BUY - This velvety Cognac opens with plenty of oak on the nose and palate. The more you sip, the more the oak recedes and bold vanilla and citrus come forward, fading to a lip-smacking finish of nutmeg and ginger. Sip or mix. Aged a minimum of 2 years..December/2017
Tre Kors is blended from 25% Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne and 75% Fins Bois cognac. It is matured in casks for around 4 years. Deep amber colour. Lively, youthful bouquet marked by fruit and with something of the character of young Grande Champagne. Soft, rounded attack, but a relatively light, fruity finish.
This is the story of prohibition and Norwegian ingenuity. During the period 1916–1926 the sale of liquor was prohibited. Liquor could still be obtained on prescription, however, and never before has a nation been so ill. Cognac was only available for “medicinal purposes”, and young Bache-Gabrielsen was quick to act. The three existing stars on the cognac label (VS) were replaced with three crosses. To this day, this cognac remains the most popular. A young and relatively unembellished VS, primarily based on Fins Bois.
