Tasting Notes

Dark, golden colour. Very balanced, fine Cognac. Fruits and flower, some spice hints - the palate round.

Bache-Gabrielsen is a medium-sized family-run cognac house with an international history. The cognac house is looking forward to its upcoming 100th anniversary, with the creation of the company in 1905. With its clean design, Bache-Gabrielsen takes an important position in the cognac market, exporting mainly to Scandinavian countries. Hervé Bache-Gabrielsen, the fourth generation head of the company, is well aware that the cognac industry is undergoing changes, with the international market being heavily developed and marketing strategies refined to cater a younger, trendier consumer-base. Considering the size of the business in comparison to the big cognac houses, it is surprising to find out that it holds the market leadership in cognac sales in Norway!

Appearance: Brown amber color with a rich viscosity. Nose: Initial fragrance of waffles smothered with butter and maple syrup, the waffles then give way to fruit notes of raspberry sauce and dried mission figs.Flavor: The initial attack comes on very strong with flavors of honey and French oak, as the alcohol spiked the honey and oak give way to forest floor flavors of truffle and earth. On the long, smooth finish, the oak comes back, this time accompanied by the raspberry sauce detected on the nose. Overall Impression: For a blend of eaux-de-vie that are 50 to 100 years old I was hoping that the transition of flavors would be a little smoother, but for $200 you are definitely getting a lot of bang for your buck. This blend is for a cognac drinker who wants to smell and taste the cellar vs. the vineyard.

    Excellent cognac, my wife received a bottle for Christmas from our son and tried it for the first time in today. Very well done House of Gabrielsen.

      You can feel the wood, smell the nuts. Beautiful dark colour - a great Hors D'Age cognac, from Bache Gabrielsen. It's true, this cognac has a fantastic balance. And the price of under 100 € (really?) is very good. Some say it's one of the best cognacs in the world, especially our Norwegian friends, of course..
