It is to be believed he received these bottles well before he passed away but know one knows exactly. We would like to know how old they are and if we should just drink them or not if they have some value.

    For how much would you like to sell this bottle?
    I have got a few 3cl bottles of this and it’s a very nice cognac, has a full aroma, sweet to drink.
    If i’m not wrong the age would be VSOP

    I have a bottle of Napoleon Bras D’or Hennessy Cognac, Product of France
    40% alc Btle #394398 B letters are in Black on gold label, has a chain around it with the emblem that you see on some of the old cognac bottles…..The bottle is dark green but looks almost like it is black….It is unopened, don’t have the box it came in, I’m wondering what the shelf life is and how much it is worth, it has been in storaage since the early 80’s

    Found this bottle a while back in my parents things/belongings. (My parents stopped drinking when my eldest brother was born. He’s is now 54yrsYoung) Could’ve been a gift years later…?!?! Not too sure tho. If anyone knows any info about this bottle (old? $$?) I’d greatly appreciate it. Mahalo #Hennessy #Cognac #BrasDor or #ShouldiJustDrinkIt?!?!
