Here comes a Hennessy XO Cognac. Unfortunately we don’t know where the bottle’s located.

The Reader writes “I bought a collection 24 bottles in an estate sale of a retired military doctor who traveled around the world. Bottles include bottles of Cognac, Absinthe and whiskeys.”

The label reads: JA Hennessey & Co
Produce of France

Tax labels, revenue, signs or similar: Some of the bottles didn\’t have a tax seal.
Some bottles are from 1950\’s and I believe that bottles were directly bought in different countries
and not having their tax seal.

    A late 1950s early 1960s XO in the Chabrignac bottle created in 1947. Obviously purchased in Asia, probably Hong Kong or Singapore. I will offer $275 for this bottle if located in the USA. $300 if you have the box.

    I could not find the bottle you were referring to on eBay UK. Do you have a link to this sale?
    Do you have the box for it?

    Similar bottle but European version with the original oldest version of the box.
    That is a top price for a late 1950s bottle mint condition with original box in mint condition… I would have paid $400 for that set but not 411 Euro.
    It was on Ebay Italy.
    Do you have the box for you bottle?
