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...

My favorite drinks:

1) Metaxa Angels Treasure

2) Zacapa Roayal

3) El Dorado 25 1986

4) Metaxa Private Reserva (new version)

5) Diplomatico Ambassador Selection

6) Malteco 1987 Selection

7) Ron Quorhum 30

8) El Dorado 21

9) Zacapa XO (old & new version)

10) Metaxa Private Reserva (old version)
