Metaxa Private Reserve Bottling Note

The Metaxa Private Reserve is made yearly by the Metaxa Master, who selects the well-aged expressions of Greek brandy from the extensive cellars, using distillates matured for up to 30 years. Following this, he blends them to create the Metaxa Private Reserve, the cream of the Metaxa crop, if you will.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Honey-dipped dark chocolate, coffee beans, light floral notes and rich oak.

Palate: Cigar box mustiness, figs, raisins and orange zest.

Finish: A long finish with hints of smoke.

Overall: Intensely enjoyable from the nose to the finish.

Metaxa Private Reserve Reviews


Was given a bottle as a gift, was unsure as I'd never heard of it....once opened nearly impossible to put away, it was such a fine brandy. Excellent in every way.

Happiness in a bottle!

Please ignore the brain dead review from what I can only surmise is a former employee who was fired for watching episodes of Spongebob Squarepants when he was supposed to be emptying the bins. Metaxa Private Reserve is quite simply the most wonderful thing to come out of Greece since Trial by Jury. Without exception the nicest Brandy I have ever tasted. Ever.
If I believed in Gods I can only imagine that this is the nectar they would drink!
Ps. Not an employee.

Below disappointing.

Disgutsing. Like vodka and rose/flower extracts. I have the Private Reserve and today i found a 20+ year old unopened five Star Metaxa 1L. I opened and compared it and after already being disappointed I was even more since they dont really differ in taste. For me, Metaxa is a successful marketing company with a horrible product: flavoured brandy. There is no oak taste or barrel taste at all. So probably my Private reserve is a blend of up to 30y aged in an empty crude oil barrel. I hope Metaxa goes bankrupt. I guess many comments are from Metaxa-employers.

Connoisseur standard.

Don't bother with a Brandy/Cognac XO costing £70+, because Metaxa Private Reserve is far superior.
Exceptional, raises the bar so high.

Metaxa private reserve

It's full of taste, but in The same time light and The flavours are dancing in your mouth! It's a delightful experiance!

Excellent, just excellent.

Metaxa Private Reserve is simply a delicious brandy that is definitely a great addition to your drinks cabinet. How can I describe it? Balanced, sweet (not in a sickly way at all), smooth.

If you're unsure about the full purchase price, I throughly recommend trying the sample version. It's a big claim, but I assure you that you won't be disappointed.

Worth it !!!!!!!!!!!!'!!!!!!!!

I have come to enjoy Metaxa's brandies very much and have drank and tasted them all from 5 star up to AEN which would be a 80 star or 80 year old. I must say all though the private reserve is very very nice the best in terms of purchasing one every 2 weeks is the 12 star grand Olympian reserve it ticks all of the Greek brandy boxes it has depth and sweet and ever so slightly brandy butter tones with that treacle or molasses taste on the back of the tongue and oaky toffee and just screams "I'm dangerous because I'm very very tasty and will get you drunk because I'm so moreish". Any Metaxa is worth buying and trying but you just see if you can find and buy 12 star grand Olympian reserve I will bet you can't for a good reason it's just that dumb good demand out paces supply !!!!
