Metaxa Amphora 7 Star Reviews

Ohh the dreams you get...

Ohh the dreams you get with the 7*

Not worth the money.

I've tried the 5-star and now 7-star. Sure, they're not undrinkable but for what they cost you can get a number of single malts (or very close to it), a few Armagnacs and some brandies (St. Remy VSOP way cheaper and better).

Maybe some people like the idea of a brandy distillate being diluted with sweet wine but I find the flavors actually conflict. At mere 40% this brandy is much too spirituous (boozy), which distracts from the flavor. I don't care about "smoothness", I prefer interesting whiskies and brandies (and other spirits) with some bite, but this one is neither smooth nor interesting. I'm sure that in cocktails or as ice melt it does about as well as any other cheap liquor meant for mixing.

My experience with sipping spirits includes dozens of single malts, XO cognacs, hors d'age armagnacs, Armenian "cognacs", pisco, grappa, tequila, bourbon, rye, etc. I am not a brand or even a price snob. But I am definitely value-minded. There are cheaper bottles that taste better and many far better bottles for only a few more dollars/euros/pounds.

METAXA, an Exceptional Greek Spirit.

I no longer buy Brandy/Cognac since I started drinking Metaxa 10 years ago.
7 Star is splendid stuff.
The Metaxa Private Reserve is exceptional.

Hard to Describe

Well the 7* version is way too sweet in taste for someone like me, though it has a rich taste of different botanics and a clear taste of the muscat wine which is the main cause of the sweetness. I do recommend it for people who like sweet stuff not for the casual brandy lover.
My personal recommendation is the Metaxa Grand Fine

Metaxa 7 star

Love the stuff, especially in winter in front of the fireplace. Always drink it neat. It makes no sense to have a drink thats being aging for 7+ years, and then ruin it by mixing it in a cocktail. Use something cheaper for that. Having said that, I recently used it to create a home make liquer with sour cherries. Briefly, this is sour cherries mixed with sugar, whole cloves and cinnamon sticks which is placed in a glass bottle (sealed) and left in the sun for 3 months. I then run it through a coffee filter to clarify it and mix it with Metaxa 7 star. That rests for about a month. The result is heaven.

Metaxa

I only drink Brandy neat, had a bottle of covoursier xo brought for me last year. Very nice but I LOVE METAXA 7 star better. Very smooth drink.

Metaxa 7 Star Greek Brandy

I bought this bottle to try based on the good reviews I've read. I only drink brandies and cognac straight. Tasted funny, herbal, and more medicine like. Might be ok for mixing cocktails but definitely not enjoyable straight. Preferred the St. Remy french brandies or better yet, cognacs.

Great price

I've just returned from Greece with a bottle of this having fallen in love with it on holiday, only to find i can get it (MUCH) cheaper here! Ah well, i know where to come when it runs out...
