Where this bottle come from?

Postby J.Phili » Mon Apr 15, 2013 11:36 pm

My friends knows that I'm a Cognac amateur and I received two bottles for my birthday.
I'm not a specialist that's why I ask for your advices.

I knew one of them but my best friend offered me a bottle who looks "not common".
It's an ABK6 bottle but there are no names like VS, VSOP, XO,...

On the label I read this :

" Single Cask Cognac
(...)
Fut : N°18 - Vieux Chai
Distillerie : Domaine de Chez Maillard
Elevage : chêne français du Limousin
Embouteillage : Octobre 2012

Série limitée à 480 bouteilles
certifiées par notre Maitre de Chai"

I made some researchs on internet but I didn't find anything about this.

Maybe you know much than me about this Cognac.
I don't even dare to open it with the "limted edition to 480 bottles" mention. :)

Hi
Coming from a selected barrels No18, old cellars. distilled by Domaine de Chez Maillard.
Aged in French oak barrels from the Limousin forests. Bottled Octobre 2012.
From barrels No. 18 has 480 bottles dropped. Certificates from the cellar master.
From a barrel of 350 liters, you get about 480 bottles. There is nothing unique, next barrel as No. 19 gives 480 bottles and the next barrel 480 bottles so you can keep on and on.

/Michael

Thanks for your answer mikjon.
I understand what is written on the label because I speak french but thank you anyway.
So you think that's not a really limited edition? It's just a mention to make people think that is a rare bottle?
I have a doubt about that because I didn't find the same bottle anywhere on the net after some researchs.
