It's got a great unique flavor. A nice oaky touch with enough dark fruit to balance — a month ago
Really smooth, blooms in your mouth. Had with duck confit rolls, shrimp tempura, fish tacos and swordfish. Went well with everything. Fonished with banana chocolate bread pudding. Mmmm good! — a month ago
I don't particularly care for peated whisky, but this bottle was nothing short of brilliant. The finesse was absolutely mind-boggling - not something I had expected out of a dram made with high levels of peat smoke, at 67 ppm.
Again, I'm not very good with whiskies and it's not often I write notes on it, but this just demanded the attention. Perhaps the best peated whisky I've had.
Tasted neat. Very elegant smoke, if that even makes sense. Neither harsh, nor overpowering. There's a citrusy, spice box, and sea-spray element to the nose too. Palate feels quite rich, kinda like smoking a cigar and eating creme caramel with candied pineapples. The finish is smooth, long, spicy, and smoky. With ice/water, I got more of the oak, but the more delicate citrusy elements started appearing on the palate. The smoke also feels more savoury than cigar-like, kinda like that smokiness in smoked foods. A real joy to sip on.
NB: Distilled 2006, bottled 2016. Another user's tasting note sums this up very well - strong peat, light scotch 🤣 — a month ago
Minerals. Granite. Citrus. All the ingredients needed for a light evening in the lair. Now to find the missiles. — 4 days ago

I drank it with some red meat, the flavours where awesome, really! Was full bodied but not the drying kind. Had a nice smoking taste, not too present. Would totally drink it again with some other red meat of bœuf bourguignon — a month ago

Pretty good. Definitely tastes like a blend. Love the Merlot of the same brand. — a month ago
Someone said natural. Think this is organic farming but I don’t think this is natural wine. Pierre Gauthier, almost 40 acres of Clay/Limestone Tufa in Benais outside of Bourgeuil. Probably just over $25-$30retail, $45-$60 on a wine list. Smoking good. The composite rating here is insanely low for the QPR. Everyone should be drinking these wines. This is a great wine in the grand scheme of things, it’s all about perspective. Entry level wine, the Jour de Soif has no oak, bright fruit, amazing green edge. There is a wet tobacco thing. Classic wine! Love it. — 10 days ago
