In terms of color, they are very close to you. The TWCC may be a little bit darker.
The WD is neatly smoky in the nose and also quite fresh and cool. Menthol cigarette. The fruits go in the direction of citrus fruit. Cliché sea breeze.
The TWCC, on the other hand, is a lot calmer. The smoke is withdrawn. The malt is not as fresh as the WD. Warmer wood notes are present. The fruits are not that fresh any more. Although also towards citrus fruits, but now rather candied.
In the mouth, the WD is still intense, but not as fresh as in the nose. It comes through a lot of sweetness. Paired with the strong smoke. From the wood is not so much to feel first. Towards the end she says hello and it gets drier.
In the mouth the same game in the TWCC as in the nose. He is less excited. Also nice sweetness here. Overall, the TWCC looks fuller. Then some herbs. In short, funnily a reminder of cannabis. In the finish, the smoke is then surprisingly colder and drier.
Both good malts. I will probably not buy both of them. The WD is too expensive for the offered and the age. The TWCC somehow offers me too little depth for old age.
