Celebrating the whiskies of the world

Orbital from Whisky Magazine

A global blend of hundreds of world malts

Discover the first new expression from Whisky Magazine, uniting the whiskies of the world in one bottle. Orbital blends the hundreds of malt whisky samples received each year with a fine aged grain whisky and matured in a Pedro Ximinez cask to create a truly out of this world experience.

Bottle No. 1 is destined for HRH Prince Harry, expedition patron of Walking With The Wounded, the charity to which all profits from the production of every bottle are donated.

Tasting note: butterscotch, manuka honey, toffee apple, biscuits and subtle warming spices.

Recommended Whiskies

Glencadam 19 Years Old Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish. Whisky like this makes tasting an absolute pleasure.

Ailsa Bay Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Although pleasant, I think it has been bottled just in time.

Auchentoshan American Oak. Is this a sweet Blanc du Blanc?
