“My father purchased a case of this Hennessy VSOP in approximately 1968! He was in San Francisco, CA. It has been stored in a dark cool place on its side the entire time.”

There is no back label. The front label says only “Hennessy Cognac Established in 1765.” And it has grapevines and the arm with an axe. On the bottle above the label, the words “VSOP RESERVE” are printed on the bottle in gold. The bottle is corked, and it is sealed with a gold top and a black seal with James Hennessy’s signature printed on it in a diagonal.
The box is in French. Has a drawing of a French military man, and on both sides is the story “Richard Hennessy 1724-1800 capitaine a la Brigade Irlandaife au Service du Roy de France. fonda a Cognac en 1765. La Maison Hennessy.”
Box also says “V.S.O.P. Reserve Hennessy
Maison Fondee en 1765 COGNAC.
Carton made in France.
