Here comes a message from Asia. On of our readers found a bottle, a little statue filled with Cognac. But it’s not any statue, it’s a little Napoleon.

Is it a XO Napoleon cognac?

This bottle was purchased by the reader’s father 15 years ago… but the value of this Tanneur Napoleon XO remains unclear.

(If you also have a bottle you would like to submit, please use our form)

Napoleon bottle

Purchased by my father about 15 years ago possibly from duty free at airport but he can’t remember where and how much it was.
It says 40% and it’s a 700ml bottle. The markings that were once gold have faded – can just about make out on the base
“product of france” “16200 jarnac”.

Below you see a nice image of a battlefield or similar.

Napoleon Cognac

On the front it says “cognac” Tanneur and “Napoleon xo”.

    I picked up the same little Napoleon statue in Japan except it is white porcelain (“16200 Jarnac” printed on the back) Excellent cognac. Would be interested in learning more about it.
