We start the week with this beautiful and well-preserved Hennessy Extra Cognac that one of our readers from Maine, USA sent us.

The Reader writes “My family had 2 of these bottles. We drank one about 40 years ago at my wedding and have never opened the other. I remember thinking that this is to special not to keep.”

(If you also have a Cognac bottle you would like to sell, or you need information about age or value – send us photos and information, just submit: Use this form – but please be aware: if you don’t follow the steps precisely, we will not publish your bottle.)

    Please provide photo of bottle in straight upright position so exact level is clearly visible.
    If level is good I can offer you $500 for this bottle.

    Oh so sad… the level is so low. What a pity!

    It is unfortunate the level is low and i will have to pass on this one. chances are the cork has deteriorated to much and can come loose in transit costing the bottle to leak and loose even more of the content. So sad could have been a nice specimen to add to my collection

    I am still interested in the bottle but could only pay $450 due to the low level. If Andrey’s offer is still good after seeing the level I think you have an excellent deal.
