Here comes a Martell Three Star Very Old Pale Cognac that a reader from UK has to offer.

The Reader writes “Immaculate condition brought back by our total uncle from the War. He was a rennouned boxer during and after the war featuring in the first televised boxing match in the UK. We are currently searching through pictures of his prizes which we suspect may show this bottle as part of his winnings along with ivory cutlery and medals. Does anyone know how to contact interested parties who can date the bottle properly for us”

    I am still looking into this bottle. I posted a bunch of photos on Drinks Planet in regard to this bottle (I believe it is the same one?)
    The circumstances of how/when it was acquired seem to match my dates better than James’ but I will follow up shortly.
