Whether you enjoy whisky or cocktails, The Singleton 12 Rob Roy promises a sensory adventure that tantalises the palate and stimulates the senses. The charm of a well-crafted whisky cocktail is found in the harmonic union of flavours, in which the rich complexity of whisky merges with complimentary ingredients to create an experience that is greater than the sum of its parts. This whisky cocktail is a version of the classic Manhattan cocktail recipe, but the Singleton 12 Rob Roy replaces rye whisky with Scotch. The cocktail recipe was made by a bartender around the 1800s to pay respect to a great Scottish Folk hero.
The cornerstone of the Singleton 12 Rob Roy is, of course, The Singleton 12-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Renowned for its balanced character and smooth, velvety texture, The Singleton 12 lends itself seamlessly to the world of cocktails. The whisky’s dark golden colour welcomes the aromatic notes which will remind you of black pepper and cigar. The hints of blackcurrant and coffee balanced by chocolate cherry and chilli notes give it a rounded finish.
The Singleton 12 Rob Roy is a flavour symphony that dances across the palate with each sip. The lush honeyed tones of the whisky offer a sweet background, while the dried fruit notes merge seamlessly with the herbal richness of the vermouth. The bitters from Angostura give a mild bitterness that adds levels of complexity to the overall character. The garnishes serve as the final crescendo, infusing the cocktail with bursts of aroma and visual appeal. This whisky cocktail is as versatile as they come which makes it an excellent choice for casual and as well formal elegant events with friends and family or even when enjoyed alone.
The Singleton 12 Rob Roy embodies the rich history, flavours, and traditions that have helped to establish whisky cocktails as a valued component of cocktail culture.
