A reader from Pennsylvania, USA sent us this Monnet 3 Stars Cognac and writes “My grandfather bought these bottles around 1930 during Prohibition in the U.S. I have 10 bottles, which were passed down from my grandfather to my father and then to me. I would like to see these bottles go to someone who appreciates fine cognac.”
