About this deal

I'm sure that in cocktails or as ice melt it does about as well as any other cheap liquor meant for mixing. There are cheaper bottles that taste better and many far better bottles for only a few more dollars/euros/pounds. He took his inspiration for the iconic design from his grandfather, who resided in the majestic landscapes of the Cyclades ( source). To bring you our insightful drinks reviews, we use a combination of tasting sets, miniatures, full-sized bottles, plus visits and toursof distilleries, breweries and wine tastings, plus bars and pubs worldwide.

Metaxa 7 Stars takes it up a notch with a sweeter honeyed note, and the 12 Stars offer a light hint of citrus.

The body is on the thin side — this is a 78 proof spirit — which leaves plenty of room for those rose petals to come on strong again on the finish.

Metaxa was first compared to a Cognac, and then later in its history, it was re-classified as a Brandy. Our team provides a worldwide drinks review service to assist our readers from every country make informed drinks purchasing decisions for events, parties, gifts, or simply enjoying at home. But the truth is, it is in a class of its own and should be considered a Greek liqueur made by blending wine, brandy and botanicals .

Maybe some people like the idea of a brandy distillate being diluted with sweet wine but I find the flavors actually conflict. Don’t judge (and let’s hope Metaxa does not find out), but I found this works incredibly well as high-class brandy and coke. Metaxa 5 Star is aged in oak casks for at least five years, and it has a mellow flavor that can be enjoyed on its own or mixed with other drinks. Officially not brandy or cognac, Metaxa is a blend of Muscat wine and aged brandies (wine distillates) combined in Limousin oak casks.
