Bache-Gabrielsen American Oak Aged Cognac

Bache-Gabrielsen American Oak is a blend of eaux-de-vie made from Ugni Blanc grapes from the Fins Bois appellation aged at least two years in French Limousin oak barrels. Such a creation would otherwise appear to be a typical VS designated cognac. However, after spending time in French Limousin oak, Bache-Gabrielsen ages the eaux-de-vie in American Oak from Tennessee for another six months, creating a first of its kind cognac. Bache-Gabrielsen cellar master Jean-Philippe Bergier selected the oak in in conjunction with the company’s cooperage partner. The imported Tennessee oak was crafted into barrels in France by French coopers.

Overall: Despite its extra time in American Oak barrels, Bache-Gabrielsen American Oak is a young cognac, aged just two and a half years. Because of the "double oaking" however, American Oak has less of a VS character and more resembles a VSOP cognac. American Oak makes for interesting sipping as the old and new world oak flavors compete. Bache-Gabrielsen does not list its American Oak cognac as a potential mixing partner for any of the cocktails it features on its website. Given the unique character of this innovative cognac it seems best suited to sipping, although a ginger ale mix produces a flavorful quaff.
