How do you like your scotch? Admittedly, I’m fairly new to it, so having it neat – I’m not quite there.
I prefer mine with a large rock (anything smaller and it starts to melt too fast), dash of orange bitters and an orange twist. Other things I’m new to: Robb Vices (although I’ve been long aware of and fan of the Robb Report Magazine). It’s a box of storied treasures that curates a collection of high-end unique items. It’s subscription base, so sign up and choose the plan that’s right for you and once a month you will receive a selection of curated products and experiences.
For this last month, the box curation began with wood. I know, huh? But that is what’s really cool about these boxes. There’s a cohesive theme that pulls it altogether. Not some haphazard collection of this and that.
To start things off is Glenmorangie – The Original, one of the finest single malts.. A brand that can track its lineage back to 1843. And one of the few whisky makers who will only use casks that has been aged eight years from when it’s cut.
If you are like me and not quite ready to have your scotch straight, Robb Vice has this handled with the addition of The Earl of Harlem, Ambessa Tea. It’s a tea Harney & Sons developed alongside Chef Marcus Samuelsson. It’s a nod to his birthplace of Ethiopia and to his personal journeys around the globe.
Drink it straight or use the Earl of Harlem Cocktail Syrup recipe to create your own whisky cocktail.
From whisky, tea to fashion, the box also included a pair of handcrafted, wood-framed sunglasses. No two pairs are alike given the natural character of the wood grain. These truly are some of the most unique glasses, I’ve ever come across.
Needless to say, I’m incredibly impressed by the Robb Vices box, the unique items are high-end, cool and beautifully curated.
