COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This version is created by ageing Xyauyù in barrels of (peaty) Islay whiskey.

Editor’s note: previously there was another smoked version of Xyauyù; the X-Fumé was brewed with smoked tea (Lapsang Suchong) and no whiskey barrel; last known vintages are 2008/2009.
The new Xyauyù Fumé appeared first on draught at Open Baladin or Un Mare di Birra with specific barrel indication (Laphroaig; Caoli Ila...). The first bottles appeared in 2012, vintage 2008 (notice the overlapping of vintages with X-Fumé).

Deep mahogny colour. Aroma of nuts, ice tea, orange, dark fruit, leather, liver pâté, caramel, bbq, tar and loads of peat, Taste is very sweet combined with a meaty smokiness that’s almost overwhelming. Completely flat. Slightly bitter and very complex. Alcohol is very well hidden.

Sample from bottle at Owl Farm, New York. Vintage 2010. Colour is clear dark copper with almost no head. Aromas and flavours: Dry fruits, warm whiskey, some sweetness and malts. Aroma is great and flavours are soft. One of the best whiskey barrel aged beers I have had (or best). Lingering. Great aging.
