Duboigalant

Every now and then a set comes along that is quite special, for whatever the reason. This group of three bottles qualifies under a number of headings.

In France those who really know about this sort of thing will tell you that the cognacs of Duboigalant are among the finest ever made. This set of three in its wooden box consists of the V.S.O.P., the X.O. and the Tres Rare. It is not known if the set is actually sold in France or was just made as a special offering for Selfridge's Department Store in London; however, what is known is that it is a very expensive set. At £25 (approximately US $41), this group of three miniatures sells for more than many full size bottles. However, as we all know, quality (like taste) cannot be disputed. (Forget French, for you who remember your Latin, we'll just say "Qualitas non est disputantum".)

  • I need some help identifying a miniature decanter and am most curious about its value. It is a small 5" tall by 2" wide Jose Cuervo cinceucentenario shot size ceramic 'jug'. Any help from anyone?
