Here comes a Hennessy Bras D’Or Grande Fine Champagne Cognac that is located in Arizona, USA.

The Reader writes “This bottle was purchased along with many others in a box lot of multiple bottles of liquor at a general auction. The persons selling, including the auctioneer, did not know what they had. Judging by not only the condition of the bottles and spirits in the collection, but the caliber of the spirits in the collection, the lot appeared to be part of a much loved and coveted private collection. I can only assume they were carefully stored by a connoisseur of fine spirits prior to my acquiring them. The cork is still very much intact. It appears darker on the bottom because I had to tilt the bottle in order to read and photograph the markings on the bottle’s base. In fact, the only thing that appears to have suffered over time is the plastic seal which has split (see cork photo), and the label which appears to have suffered some wear and tear from handling, and there are nominal sediments. Sorry, I do not have the original green velvet box or the crystal stopper for the Baccarat bottle.”

    Hi,

    1. What is your piece for this bottle?

    2. Do you have the box and crystal stopper for it?

    3. It seems the plastic seal is broken. Am I correct?

    Thanks
