    Convinced my dad to sell this bottle and I took some pictures of it.

    What do you folks think?
    Good pictures? Smexy? no good, redo?

    Appreciate any comments or experience with this Cognac.
    Should he kept it and drink it?

    Sell it, bust just because I don't believe any booze is "that" much better to explain the price.

    I've tasted it. It is great. Unless he needs the money, save if for a special occasion. Just the empty bottle (and stopper) may be worth something. Did he purchase it or receive it as a gift?

    I was having a conversation with a friend who owns a bar over the weekend. According to him the empty bottle is worth $300 alone.

    it's baccarat crystal but still, what the hell would anyone do with it?

    I would probably fill it with E&J brandy and serve it after dinner parties to be cheeky.

    From the early 70s. It was incredible.

    Yes, empty decanter is worth a few hundred bucks.

    That is what I was thinking. How is the demand so high for an empty liquor bottle?
