We end the week with an item of the great, well-known Hardy Perfection series, bottle #549 to be exactly of this strictly limited edition. Cognac, Daum decanter, Carzou lithograph and oak case are located in Canada.
The Reader tells us that “Back in late eighties I had a friend that worked in a fine dining restaurant that sold the cognac and was fortunate enough to try it. I cant remember what it sold for, but it was expensive,they would however break the shot into halves or quarters. It was the most amazing, smoothest thing I had, and to this day ever tasted. Knowing how much I enjoyed it, I ended up receiving a bottle (#549) When I opened up the shipping crate(which is also numbered and still have in original condition) thats when I realized the set included the Daum decanter, the carzou lithograph, oak case and all the letters of authenticity, all matched.As much as I wanted to open the bottle I could never bring myself to do so. It has been kept away since then, other than those times I wanted to show it off or just admire it and dream of tasting it once more. I also have photos of complete set.”
