    Of all the spiritous drinks brandy and specially cognac are my favourite. During the years I've appreciated Metaxa more and more. Both the 7 and 12 stars are highly recommended! They are complex in bouquet and taste and offers superb smoothness.

    Bliss in a bottle. I drink scotch neat, and I was looking forward to trying some different types of brandy. I am new to the brandy game, but Metaxa 7 Star is by far the best brandy I have had yet, it surpasses most smooth scotches as far as drink-ability goes. The caramel after-taste and the smooth, rich flavour has me looking for my next bottle time and time again.

    My Greek Dad introduced me to Metaxa 7 Star. A man of a few rare pleasures, he insisted on its practicality - that it chases away winter colds. When I was old enough to drink it myself, I discovered that its an entirely different kind of medicine. I drink it over a bit of crushed ice - seems to bring out the delicate tones. The only bottle I keep in the house. You won't find a more exquisite sitting and thinking drink. Just finishing the remnants of my latest bottle as I write.

    Extraodrinary! Never tasted better.

    Never been to Greece or any of the islands, but friends have been very generous. The 7 star has been my best so far. Cant believe how quickly that went down.

    Mmmmmm ....

    The first time I had the 7 star was 1978 on a boat at a Greek family coumpound near my home. They would bring it into the country by private plane... I didn't look to see what it was and thought it was the most delicious warm wine ever. It was my first experience with brandy. Nothing has come close since. They served it with orange slices and the two flavors were exquisite together. Other brandies are not subtle or seductive like this. I have loved it ever since.

    I have just come back from Pefkos in Rhodes and have enjoyed every mouthfull of the seven star, the twelve is great but the seven is brilliant

    My Missus drinks 7* by the gallon and frequently travels to Greece for a 48 hr replenishment bender. 7* Metaxa now flows through her veins instead of blood and she's a better unit for it!

    I just cleaned a friends cellar and found 18 bottles. Haven't tried yet but reviews make my mouth water.

    For some reason I always find this goes best with the Corfu Sun! Seems strange the five star is not available in the UK but they are all very good indeed, nectar of the Greek Gods!
