Not a liqueur, I like most drinks, but, this is not one I hanker after.
As for taste, think of brandy, then forget it! Can't really describe.

Can confirm taste is similar


Your taste buds must be cattle trucked.

Great drink, smooth, mellow and also fantastic mixer.

7 Star is only a few quid more and well well worth it for the step up in quality.

12 star for 30 quid, thought it stopped at 7, tempted to try.
OK if you can't get paint stripper from B&Q

You can't get hangovers on holiday! You must have been doing it properly
Tastes great in Greece, not so much when I'm back in UK!

Spotted this the other day. The 12 Star was a ridiculously well priced £25 at the beginning of the month.

Exactly! This is the stuff they used to bring out with the bill! They probably hoped you'd pay up and leave after a shot of this!

It's always ranked as one of the best standard Brandies

You're possibly thinking of Raki
it’s kinda like a cross between southern comfort and cognac.

We brought a bottle of Retsina back! Tasted so different back home in Manchester, my tastebuds must have changed on the flight home!

Did you put it in the fridge first? Also what brand do you go for? Don't say Kourtaki because that's not really good stuff.

I’ve been going to Kefalonia every year since 2010!
Please keep in mind that retsina is not to be drunk on its own, rather mixed either with coke or sprite.
And kept cold in the fridge.
I'm originally from Agio Nikolao and was supposed to fly back for Easter these days (
