Napoleon on the label? Must be a Courvoisier. One of our readers has a bottle of cognac at home: A Courvoisier VSOP.
The bottle is located in Clearlake, CA, USA. “In 1974 my father-in-law gave me two boxed bottles of Courvoisier VSOP. Due to health issues, he could no longer enjoy his favorite cognac and passed it on for our enjoyment. Upon his passing, we opened the first bottle for a toast in his honor. This is the second bottle he so generously shared!”
