Sure thing, actually. And yet, now that I have the 1.2 in the glass, I am a little surprised about my rating of the 1.1. The finish is actually not that short, and in the nose the notes of the 1.1 somehow also lacked the toffee and caramel notes ... In any case, the 1.2 has more than deserved his / my 87 points, and with the best will I can not say whether the gain compared to 1.1 has objective reasons in the form of a little more maturity or subjective reasons based on the increasing personal conviction that the Waterford stuff is just delicious. At this point, at this moment, but ultimately, I don't care. :)
Toffee, malt, caramel, plus dried herbs and the scent of dried flowers. Cold coffee grounds mixed with block malt, yeast dough and a hint of dried lavender. Marjoram, chervil, tarragon. And yet there are also hints of a fresh note of freshly sliced red apples and mirabelle plums.
Sweet apple crumble, malt, toffee, milk chocolate. And then a dry note of wood comes around the corner pretty quickly, bringing notes of leather and tobacco leaves with it. Slightly tart herbs on the tongue - marjoram and chervil to it - give it a certain depth. Tart honey, sugar beet syrup.
Delicately tart, not so short at all. Fudge, caramel, dark chocolate, and cold coffee bring up the rear.
