Here comes the weekend and just another nice Martell item, a Martell Cordon Bleu Réserve Limitée. The bottle is located in Texas, USA.

The Reader writes “Another bottle from my late father-in-laws stash. This is an unopened bottle found under the liquor cabinet. We are unsure of how or when it was obtained, but had to have been before 1981. We are interested in finding out a little more about the bottle and possibly getting it to a loving home!”

(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.)
