Clarke's Commentary on Proverbs 23 :30

Barnes' Commentary on Proverbs 23 :30

Mixed wine - Wine flavored with aromatic spices, that increase its stimulating properties Isaiah 5:22. There is a touch of sarcasm in "go to seek." The word, elsewhere used of diligent search after knowledge Proverbs 25:2; Job 11:7; Psalm 139:1, is used here of the investigations of connoisseurs in wine meeting to test its qualities.

Wesley's Commentary on Proverbs 23 :30

23:30 Mixt wine - Either mixed with water, or with other ingredients to make it strong and delicious.
