New Game +
version 1.24

During this quest, when in celler, and after finding the correct "spiked" wine barrel, place caught fire and when I tried to bring up AARD to use on the 5 barrels, nothing would happen (aard and any menu). After dying and told it to reload, it would not reload (just stayed on same screen). Used Task manager 5 times to shut down the game and restart it trying different things to get thru it.
Finally ended up before finding the correct wine barrel, used AARD on the 5 barrels first then examined the corect barrel. Made the escape.
