The bouquet comes off very mature, brandy-like, raisiny and pruny with a genuine wood influence and vanilla-like sweetness that rounds out the raisin/prune aspect. palate entry is truly raisiny/pruny and more bittersweet than sugar sweet; midpalate stage features a wood resin impact on the fruitiness and a honey and orange zest presence. Concludes long, gently sweet, moderately fruity and woody.

Significantly darker and richer in color than the other two Metaxas, a medium amber/medium brown color, superb purity; this bouquet is decidedly brandy-like as succulent, heady, and spirity aromas of Muscat grapes, almonds, oak, and caramel come together with style; on palate, the entry flavor is intensely grapy, then the taste turns compact and pruny, even raisiny, at midpalate, reminding me slightly of oloroso or palo cortado Sherry; the aftertaste is very long, burnt, and brandy-like; like its siblings, it rides the fence that separates brandies and liqueurs.

Gorgeous mahogany/chestnut color; impeccable clarity. Comes off very mature, brandy-like, raisiny, and pruny in the opening inhalations; for the first time in all the Metaxas tried thus far, I get a genuine wood influence and vanilla-like sweetness that rounds out the raisin/prune aspect. Palate entry is truly raisiny/pruny and more bittersweet that sugar sweet; midpalate stage features a wood resin impact on the fruitiness that worked in 1993 when I first reviewed this product and works today as I take note of the presence of honey and orange zest. Concludes long, gently sweet, moderately fruity and woody. Recommended.
