Armagnac Question


I know this is a wine board, but I have an idea you folks are very knowledgable about Armagnac as well.

I would like to buy a bottle of a 1951 Armagnac as a gift for a friend. I know this is not an inexpensive item, and that is why I'm looking for suggestions as to a good brand/name to look for. It is 1951 simply because that is my friend's birthdate.

Does anyone have any idea on this? Thanks!

  1. Park Avenue Liquor in New York City has a couple. Never had them, of course, so I can't vouch for the taste.

      Thanks -- I think I'll contact them to see what they can tell me about them. Mark
