    Hey Roman it would be great if you could perhaps give us an idea of where you see the price range/value. Let’s make this a bit more transparent for other users. Thanks

    This bottle of 1914 Vintage is sold for as much as $1500 but one can still order it at $900 from a retailer and obviously less from an auction house should it be on the block.

    Merci à tous, la bouteille se sent tout aussi grande qu’il n’y paraît. Vous ne pouvez pas attendre pour partager mes sentiments sur le reste de ce chef-d’œuvre siècle. Restez à l’écoute et les acclamations

    I also have one of these bottles. The bottle number is 001157. My bottle label is in French (not English) and it was in the barrels 75 years not 15 as stated above. I also have a “Certificat d’ Authenticite” signed by the Maitre Distillateur, Maitre de Chai and Huissier de Justice. It comes in a marron wooden box. This was a gift to me from a Russian Comtesse I knew well. Her family was exiled during the revolution and went to France. .

    I too have two bottles, one Bottle #941 I gratuitusly imbibe in a 3/4 oz portion while smoking a Cohiba(Cuban) sitting in front of my fire-pit on a moon lit night! The other bottle #939 is in it’s original box with certificate of authenticity!

    Truly a remarkable multi-layered ofactory extravaganza! I also enjoy The Kelt Petra(incredible) and to a lesser degree my Louis XIII!
