You do realise that the mention of the late French emperor's name is absolutely no guarantee of quality? The man had a cast iron stomach.The only way to find out what your bottle is like is to taste it

I was more interested in date and origin.

looks very much like a 50s or 60s style bottle.

I do not think it is one of Courvoisier's better quality efforts because it does not say VS,VSOP, or fine champagne on the bottle

I'm no expert on old brandy, but wasn't Steve Shortridge the name of the actor who joined the cast of Welcome Back Kotter after Travolta left?  He had one of the best lines on that show ever:  "My father taught me three things I've never forgotten:  Never cross a woman, never eat bad possum."  "Wait, what was the third?"  "Never eat good possum."
