Name of bottle: Courvoisier Napoleon cour imperiale


Written on labels: Courvoisier Napoleon Cognac cour imperliale, Courvoisier (in cursive), The brand of Napoleon, Produce of France, No. s2241, the back label is entirely in an asian language.

Story: The owner’s sister and her new husband moved into a family home and not being drinkers they gave the owner the spirits they found stored in the basement.  This bottle was one of those.  It looks well traveled as the back label is written in what appears to be a Chinese dialect.

    Hi, be careful, that bottle of Napoléon is “collector”, ideed, that bottle was edited exclusively for chinese market and the process to obtain cracks in gold is not possible anymore (too old, and law not allow companies to do it anymore because of EN, ISO and ASTM) ! that bottle will never be edited like that ! so I think the price is a little under estimate 😉

    I have this bottle, unfortunately it is nearly empty. What version of Courvoisier comes closest to the quality of the cognac that came in this bottle, i.e.; Courvoisier Napoleon Cour Imperiale? I want to buy another of the same taste and quality.

    Also, can I expect to find this cognac cheaper in Europe? or Asia? or the Carribbean?
