Short Comparison between the Cask Orkney (WID: 113256), the Full Volume (WID: 101678), and the Berry Bros & Rudd (WID: 108315)
The Cask Orkney and the Full Volume are almost inevitably similar. The Cask Orkney has a bit more freshness and citrus in it. The smoke feels a bit cooler in the Cask Orkney. The full volume has more grain and oak notes, is slightly muted and fuller. It seems to me that the Full Volume has a little more wood influence.
I tend to like the Full Volume in direct comparison even a bit better, because it works a tick older than the Cask Orkney. Both are really solid malts. There will not be a big bottle, so I do not have to ask myself which bottle to buy.
The Berry Bros & Rudd tolerate some water. Otherwise he seems somehow alcoholic. He opens with water. The water then has herbal, forest and meadow notes. It's such a cross between Cask Orkney and the Full Volume for me. He also has a freshness similar to the Cask Orkney, but this seems somehow elegant in the Berry Bros & Rudd. In addition also wood influence like with the Full Volume. In addition, the smoke may be stronger than the two before it. The sherry is not really something to hear. Overall, the Berry Bros & Rudd is probably the most complex whisky in comparison, as it brings a mix of freshness and wood with it. But it does not necessarily have to be a big bottle.
