Answer
Hi Tom,

Private sale of alcohol is a Proincial monopoly in Canada so it would't be lawful for you to offer this bottle for sale privately and I'm afraid I don't know what arrangements the New Brunswick Liquor Board (www.nbliquor.com/) offer to facilitate that. But some LBs do arrange controlled auctions so I'm sure yours would be able to say how, or if, they could help you to get a local valuation as a prospective auction lot.

But if your inquiry was for interest rather than with a view to sell, you are looking at well into four figures CA$ as vintage-dated Cognacs are rare and much sought-after by collectors.

Regards,

Expertise

I have 40 year`s experience tasting, collecting and enjoying wines as an amateur enthusiast. Bordeaux and Port are my particular loves and I regularly buy and sell at auction. I have a good library and frequently participate in on-line discussions. I can only help with valuations, buying or selling if you tell me where you live as there are many variations around the world.

Experience

I would not feel confident answering questions on German wines or those of the USA, South Africa or Australia. But please check my prestige rating and browse "Browse Past Answers" at the top of this page to see if I'm the one you want to help on everything else! (PLEASE don't forget to tell me where you are if you want my estimation of value or help buying or selling!)

Organizations
I also participate regularly on several other discussion groups.
