The "Black Mystery II" was a special release for France in late 2009. The offering consisted of a standard "New" TEN bottle with a special Piano Black wooden display box. 3,000 of these were made, and half of them were alotted to La Maison du Whisky. Of special note, approximately 1000 of the Black Mystery II were released with a special wax seal set.

Note: The photograph above was originally sent by Moet-Hennessy to La Maison du Whisky, and it pictured the "Old" TEN. However, the Black Mystery II was released with the "New" TEN as seen in the pictures below from Thomas Kruger's Whisky Auction.
