Description
Close to 2000 hours of sunshine in every bottle, Metaxa is Greece’s leading export spirit. Metaxa 12 Stars reveals the unique talent of the Metaxa Master and his devotion to delivering supreme smoothness and quality. It glows with a radiant amber colour flecked with bronze. Twelve years in the making, its lively concentrated bouquet releases generous aromas of dried flowers and herbs, interwoven with luscious notes of chocolate, butterscotch and hints of orange peel.

A fabulous blend of brandy which has matured for up to 12 years and Muscat wines from the Samos region goes together to create Metaxa 12 Star. Floral, herby and pleasantly sweet, it’s a gorgeous Greek treat.
Tasting note: Deep copper appearance is slightly subdued in the glass. Perfumed opening sniffs offer an amalgam of sweet scents from creme caramel to cocoa and dates. Aeration draws out hints of Turkish Delight then liquorice bullets, the latter partially relieving the sugars. Initially light and semi sweet in the mouth; mid palate shows extra depth offering spicy caramel flavours and hints of dried fruits towards the finish. Ends flabby with moderate length as the sweet spices linger. The genteel spirit and glossy texture don’t really compliment the sweetness. Overall, somewhat broad and flat. 40% Alc./Vol.
