This version is created by ageing Xyauy in barrels of (peaty) Islay whiskey.

Editors note: previously there was another smoked version of Xyauy; the X-Fum was brewed with smoked tea (Lapsang Suchong) and no whiskey barrel; last known vintages are 2008/2009.
The new Xyauy Fum 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-Fum).

Pour from a bottle at the Baladin location in Rome. Brown pour, no head, into a Teku. Aroma of sweet caramel with lots of peaty smoke notes. Flavor is sweet caramel and smoke, lots of peat here, with beautiful oak and whiskey character. Rich body, low carbonation, really nice after dinner drink. Good stuff, but pricey for a bottle.

Malty caramel and fig flavor, smoked, raisins, toffee, oily, port, whisky, plums, some licorice. Extremely fullbodied and with alcohol quite well hidden. I like this.

marcus (8001) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Bottle from Belmont Station. Pours cola with no head and a smoky tea aroma. There is a sweet dark malt flavor with a lot of smoke and tea. It has all melted together over the years, creating an interesting taste. Also a nice whiskey finish.
