I first had this brandy what seems like a millennia ago when I first went to Greece. Unfortunately I was not able to go back to Greece until the end of May this year. To Zakynthos. I was a bit stunned at the serving of this brandy (WOW!!!) but, nevertheless enjoyed it with my coffee after dinner. And boy did I enjoy it every night for the week I was there. It is such a smooth brandy and unlike French or Spanish it is not harsh.
I brought a bottle home from Duty Free for my son and daughter in law and they loved it so when they were due to visit me I. . sent for a bottle. OK so the brandy arrived well on time but I was not entirely happy with the packaging. It was in a plastic case inside a cardboard box but somehow the cap of the bottle had come loose and there was brandy all over the place. Otherwise I have no grouse. It arrived on the Friday whereas Monday was given as the delivery date but I would have been severley miffed if it had not been delivered until the Monday as I paid quite a lot extra for "next day" delivery

Metaxa Greek brandy can be a bit of an acquired taste, but it is a taste that I recommend people work on. It is actually a mixture of distilled spirit and herbs, apparently, unlike French brandy. The Greeks drink it with ice, but I prefer it as it comes out of the bottle, in a brandy balloon shaped glass. They also make a Seven Star Brandy, which is even smoother, and also very acceptable. This is a nice alternative to traditional brandies, and certainly doesn't give me heartburn, as some of the others can do. Recommended.

A deliciously smooth brandy that is well worth trying. METAXA 5 Stars has a floral character, revealing notes of bitter orange blossom, roses, apricot, flower honey, vanilla and a touch of violette and balanced, with notes of peach and apricot, raisin and brioche. Delicious and unlike any brandy you have tried before.

I have given this product a rating of five stars because of its quality, presentation and price! It is a delightful brandy and I would recommend it for its flavour. I enjoyed it as much as I did other more expensive brands

Bought this item for my guest, but they said it's not original as they are real Greeks.. I love it anyway. Amazon also mentioned that it's 40%.. the bottle states 38%..

FIX THAT AMAZON.

I have been drinking this since I first discovered it on The Greek Islands more than 35 years ago. It is smooth, rich and warm. Not as harsh as some cognacs.
