This must be the seventh Waterford release I try.
N : once again, a variation on the barley theme. Rawer than The Cuvée. Peppery, barley sugar, menthol and raw fruits (apricots, acidic like a green apple or perhaps pineapple). A little alcohol tingling here and there sadly. Very reminiscent of labneh too. Thijs100 noticed an agave-like note, and I have to say it's reminiscent of some of the softer mezcals I had. Just like The Cuvée, it develops with time on biscuits, chocolate and citrus, while remaining on the wild side.
M : oh yes, mouthcoating once again. I'm an absolute fan of the mouthfeel there, the most impressive (and I've been impressed) I had from Waterford. Less on the dough and yoghourt than the nose, more floral-forward. Barley sugar, biscuits, bitter orange. Great first impression. A bit on the bitter side, a little hot too sometimes (chili), still simple but more variations than The Cuvée. Lot of salinity.
F : medium, still on barley. Christmas cake feeling in the end, still lightly bitter : cinnamon, orange peels, nuts. Roasted coffee beans too.
To me this is the best Waterford release (out of the Micro-Cuvée though). It should appeal to lovers of raw products : white mezcals, rhums and clairins, natural wines etc. It's raw, has some flaws, but very generous. 7/10
Edit : tried again 4 months later, and boy I hope there will be some older versions soon.
