Smoke Wagon Uncut Unfiltered 114 proof. If you can find a bottle, it's worth picking up.

I`m using Bowmore 12yo as a go-to whisky. Cheaper but must not
be underestimated.

Domaine Belluard Pur Jus 100% Gringet 2016
Vin de Savoie, France
No sulphites added.




Very mineral, beautiful nose, nice grapefruit accents, rich aftertaste.
Only 12 hectares worldwide of this grape!

Since beginning of Covid, and this is a coincidence, we almost always drink so-called natural wines.
We just like the taste - we have a passionate wine lover who sells us the most extraordinary bottles - and you simply feel better the day after!

Joel..., I was of the opinion that most Savoie wines had a rather poor taste.
This white wine, almost a 'vin jaune' like the Jura whites, is a nice surprise.

Yes, I’m generally not a great fan of vins de Savoie, except maybe the Chignin-Bergeron which makes an ok wine for aperitif, but now I have to try this white wine of yours
