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).

MarcoGori (10) - ITALY - NOV 13, 2014
Birra tecnicamente perfetta, è un barley wine servito dalla botte che profuma di vaniglia e torba, molto corposo, come un whisky da fine pasto.

Cervesa molt complexa, per beure amb molta calma ja que evoluciona en cada glop, es nota molt el toc turbat del whisky. Cerveza muy compleja, para beber con mucha calma ya que evoluciona en cada sorbo, se nota mucho el toque turbado del whisky.

allmyvinyl (4254) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle at Craig’s. Pours hazy amber with no head. Aromas is mostly cardboard I’m afraid, light fruit and smoke in the background. Taste is better, fruit coming through, only light smoke again. Finishes sweet and boozy. Not bad.
