77ships (8211) - Antwerpen, - OCT 9, 2012
Bottle sampled @ Quintessence 2012. With some fine chocolate caviar served alongside. Aged on Italian red wine. Whiskey sized pour of a completely flat, not the slightest inkling of a head of a brandy looking liquid - colour me impressed. Smell is very sweet caramel mixed with dark sugar, liqueur, honey, dark fruits, wood. Taste is slick, bit thick, oily goodness, caramel, toff, liqueur, concentrated caramelized sugar, maple light dark fruits leading in a lightly woody and vinous finish. I liked this one even more than the already exceptional Baladin Xyauyù Barrel - even rounder, slicker - mighty fine stuff.

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 20, 2016
Dull light brown, no head. The aroma has a fair bit of chocolately, espresso character, with maybe a light brown sugar. There is light sugars, some tree fruits, and finishing in a bit of wood. There’s a fairly sherryish oxidiation in the finish, with a touch of alcohol lending a little bit of drynes.

mcberko (14682) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 20, 2016
500mL bottle, pours a filthy dark orange with a small bubbly beige head. Aroma has some oxidation, with red wine barrels, light caramel and toasted bready notes. Flavour has pleasant sherry-like oxidation, caramel, vanilla and subtle red wine. Finishes with vanilla, subtle sherry and caramel. Complex, warming, and beautifully constructed. Fantastic.

Brandman (2850) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 20, 2016
HHOK 18. Dark brown body, no head. Aroma has some dark hops, raisins, dried fruits, chocolate and rye. Flavour has chocolate, alcohol, mixed fruits and raisins, roasted caramel and intense red wine notes. When warms, this becomes a chocolate bomb.

cadilhac (36) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 23, 2015
Woody and less vinegary than xiauyu, faint on the after taste and aroma. A watered down version of xiauyu if you take them in that ordered.

laiti (8081) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 30, 2015
10 cl sample (11%) @ Baladin Open, Rome as "Terre 2010." Aroma is sweet with licorice, raisins and hints of hay. Flavour has licorice, raisins, sweet sugary tones and rye pudding. Close to Xyauyù, but not that rich or intensive.

olio (9376) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 30, 2015
10 cl sample, 2010 vintage @ Open Baladin, Rome.
Pours murky brown color with no head. Again, quite sweet with plums and raisins, caramel and some brown sugar, the red wine barrel is quite faint. Sweet plums on the flavor, caramel malts, sugar and some earthy notes too. Nice sweet BW but a bit simple. Tasty anyway.
