Hi guys you are wellcome to my cabinet!! I prefer rums with medium sweetness, well aged and smooth. I am big rum lover compared to other spirits (cognac-brandy, whiskey-bourbon, wine-champagne, gin, vodka, tequila, liqueurs & cocktails) but with an exception of house METAXA. METAXA is a brandy-cognac which doesn't taste typicaly it's a category of it's own, much richer without being acidic as many cognacs (the taste reminds me much more a sweet rum than a brandy). It's made of best greek moscato (of island Samos) & other high quality wines combined with an other secret plant which works in small quantities and the result is a mysterious blend "somewhat as Zacapa is in the rum world" but little different. My favorite drink of this brand is METAXA Angel's Treasure and this is the most flavorful spirit I have ever taste with a exceptional mysterious scent! But expensive with a pricetag around to 150€. If you want to taste for 1st time METAXA brand i would recommend you the Private Reserve (new version) which costs around 60-70€ & it is close to Angel's Treasure but not same. The flavour profile of Angel's Treasure is amazing thick-creamy with balance sweetness. Flavour: fruits like apricots, raisins, peach, figs, plums & orange peel, caramel, vanilla, butter, pepper, sweet spices as cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, also mild-melt oak, honey, mocha-coffee, chocolate, rose, anise, licorice & light mediterranean botanicals-floral-herbs (mysterious blend) & soft smoke with silky smooth end like a true nectar with very long aftertaste & special complexity!! Also there's and the big brother of the family METAXA, the AEN which costs more than 1500€ and I was not lucky enough to taste it. Anyway but even cheaper Metaxa for their money are very good...
