    Glad to hear from you Mike! I see your name tied into soooo many other post! Your obviously an expert when it comes to Cognac! I’ve not seen any other bottles like this one tell me a little bit more about it!

    For one the volumetric amount printed on this bottle 72cl is different from the standard 75cl of the 1950’s bottles! In fact the volumetric content is not even printed on those bottles that I’ve noticed, if so its not printed in the same place. Next across the the bottom of the bottle etched in Glass reads Bisquit DeBouche and Co. On the standard 1950’s bottles the etching reads Bisquit DeBouche rather than Bisquit DeBouche and Co.. I’ve also noticed that the 1950’s bottles label is printed in color, while this one is printed in Black and White. Lastly the 1950’s bottles read Product Of France on the paper label and this particular bottle does not. I’ve searched and searched for a Bottle like this to gain specific knowledge about it’s origin, but haven’t found out anything! Educate me why don’t you!

    What pics would you like me to send you of the bottle Mike! I can tell you for sure that it is a rare bottle! I’ve taken to every authority on Cognac from my to San Fransisco and they all have tried matching up to various bottles with no success! The one thing that they all agree on is that this is a rare bottle! I would like to know have you seen any like it.

    The cognac is post 1952 (Late King George VI) but probably from the mid 1960s
    72cl is a very common volume but only for bottles sold in the UK and Canada. A US bottle from this era would be marked 4/5 Qt
    The US 75cl/750ml metric markings were started in the 1980s.
    I found a vintage ad for your exact bottle on eBay France – dated 1961.
    Bisquit-Dubouche is a good cognac brand in existence since the early 1800s but not as well known as many others. It is probably on the same level as Otard, Delamain, Salignac, Croizet, Frapin and Monnet.
    You have an interesting bottle but not an extremely rare one.

    Well Mike, what year is this bottle first of all! I would definitely like to know a little bit more about this bottle before closing the deal. You
    And I both know that the 1950 VSOP is worth 6-7ish in American. I feel that this bottle could very well be older. No expert that I’ve taken the bottle to has even been able to match it to or produce another bottle like it! With that being said I would like for you and I to negotiate a fair price! After all I’m not selling this bottle because I want to but rather because I need to.

    The bottle cannot be older than 1952 because of the purveyor label states the LATE King George VI… King George VI died in 1952.
    In 1952 the Bisquit VSOP was sold in a straight cylindrical bottles. This exact bottle appears in a 1961 advertisement so the year is pretty well established.
    The question of value…
    A Martell VSOP from 1961 sells for about $350. Martell is a much more collectible brand than Bisquit-Dubouche. Even a Martell Cordon Bleu from 1961 sells for $450 and is a much higher grade cognac than this VSOP.
    A price around $200-$250 is realistic anything more is not.

    Here is a late 1940s Bisquit VSOP certified 35 years in cask (In 1961 the VSOP was probably 15-20 years in casks)
    This one is offered RETAIL for about $400. This tells me $250 would be a very generous offer for your bottle. $200 is the more realistic value.

    Ok Mike so offer me a fair price so that I can get this over with. I will tell you that for 150 I would hold on to it Mike. Let’s come up with a price that you and I both feel good with! Like I said I don’t mind selling the bottle however the price has got to be a fair one!

    If your bottle is
    4/5 quart and 80 proof or 84 proof
    I would pay more
    Because your bottle
    Is around 1980 is not 1950
    Best regards

    I own (3) 1980’s bottle of Bisquit, (1) 1976 bottle of Bisquit, as well as a 1950’s bottle! This Bottle is older and more rare than every Bottle that I own according to venders that I’ve taken the bottle to. Of course you do know that a product that’s 40% alcohol is 80 proof. Also we know that because etched in glass across the bottom reads Bisquit DeBouche and Co., that this bottle is a vintage bottle! I paid $689.00 to the whiskey trader for my 1950 Bisquit DeBouche VSOP bottle Mike, and this bottle is far more rare than that one. Every vender that’s looked at this bottle reply that they’ve never saw one like it. I’ve searched on foot and all around the Internet with no success of finding one like it! So we have to admit that this bottle is more rare than not Mike. My 1950’s bottle just reads Bisquit DeBouche across the bottom of the class, so it’s for certain that it’s older than that bottle! Just the fact that there’s none like it to pull up on the Internet makes it rare Mike!

    Sorry Dennis but you don’t appear to know much about this bottle.

    It is not a vintage cognac because it has no stated vintage year. It is a VSOP grade which is by definition a blended cognac NOT a vintage cognac.

    The bottle style with the name cast into the glass is a newer version than the straight “Bordeaux-style” bottles that ALL cognac companies used until the 1950s. The purveyor label clearly sets the oldest possible age at 1952 since it is stated that the cognac was supplied to the LATE King George VI (LATE=deceased). It is easy to check that King Georges VI of England died in 1952.

    You seem fixated on the fact that it says Bisquit Dubouche & Co. on the bottle… This is actually a negative as the newer bottles use this name, for example this cheap 1980s 3 star cognac that I paid $45 for.
    While older bottles use just the Bisquit-Dubouche name. The fact that there are very few of these bottles listed anywhere on the internet is only indication that it is an obscure brand as opposed to a rare and collectible bottle.

    What you have a rather ordinary 1960s VSOP cognac in nice condition but nothing beyond that. See this 1961 ad

    Whoever those “venders” are that suggested it is a great and rare find I would question their opinion.

    Mike, Mike, Mike!!!!!

    I can tell that you and I both like to wheel and deal. I love your Spirit my friend. If we are going to seal this deal lets seal it Brother!! I need some money to buy my wife and kids gifts for Christmas. Work has been very slow my friend. So if it is going to be worth it I will need to sell it! That’s the bottom line Mike. So get back with me ASAP please.

    Dennis,
    I am not “Mike” who is trying to buy your bottle. I am “just” a cognac guy who spends his time evaluating old cognacs on Cognac Expert/Cognac Forum/Drinks Planet. Any bottle posted is just a challenge for me to figure out the year, age, grade, value etc.
    I do buy cognacs but Bisquit Dubouche is a brand I generally avoid because the market for them is too limited. I have a few but I am not going to compete with Mike on this one.
