Metaxa 7 Star Greek Spirit 40% 70cl
Forever associated with being on holiday, Metaxa is known as a brandy (for some reason I always thought it was Spanish!) but officially it's a 'Greek Spirit Drink' as botanicals such as Meditteranean herbs and rose petals are added as part of the finishing process - a pot-still brandy made from native Greek grapes is aged for a nu ber of years - the 'stars' on each label determines the length of time in cask, so in this case an aging for 7 years - before marrying with aged Muscat wine and an infusion of Mediterranean herbs and rose petals for a further 12 months.
Compared to the younger 5 Star, the additional two years of aging might not seems like it should make a difference, but boy howdy does it. The depth and complexity is considerably improved, with the sweet floral notes becoming richer and fuller. Whereas 5 Star comes across as a quaffer, this is very much a sipper - it'll bring back memories of your Greek holidays for sure, but the ones of relaxing on the beach in the sun, as opposed to drinking too much at the hotel bar...
