Here comes a real old lady, unfortunately without any brand name. The label of this cognac bottle reads: Grand Cognac 1811 Fine Napoléon. It is located in Coimbra, Portugal.

This is what the reader tells us about his bottle: “This bottle was offered to me by my father in the early Seventies. It was his father, my grandfather, who had offered it to him in the Thirties. My grandfather was from a village called Almeida, where he was Mayor in the beginning of 20th Century. Almeida is a Portuguese village that had a crucial role during the Napoleonic Wars because it was a fortress that was occupied twice by the French troops.”
