    Hi my name is Kevin.

    I collect wines in a wine cellar as an interest.

    Would not offer such a measly sum as other people.

    If I was selling this very rare brandy I would want at least £15,000 sterling for it.

    The person selling this is making a bad mistake my advice to you is to keep this brandy and pass it on in your family.

    It is very rare and you are lucky to have it.

    I have a bottle of 1811 Napoleon Cognac, also. My bottle has some significant differences though. The bottle is clearly hand blown, there is still some sealing wax residue in the seal medallion and a couple of other differences. Is any one interested in further information?
