Nicholson was a small negoçiant. Before 1856 cognac producers were not allowed to use their own labels so had to sell their cognac through negoçiants. The vintage of this cognac is actually in the glass neck of the bottle, the label is in good condition and it is thought to contain 80 cl. This is a fine example of pre-phylloxera cognac, we have tasted similar to this and believe it to be of the very highest quality.
|Flavour||Whilst our knowledge of these old cognacs is sufficient in many cases to make an educated assessment of their flavour, we are unable to taste many of these old brandies to be certain of their qualities.|
