Jon, Mark and Robbo’s The Rich Spicy One is a rare and great 2002 release. It is supposed to be modelled after The Macallan’s Gran Reserva and Exceptional Single Cask, but affordable. David Robbertson (Robbo for friends and whisky labels) used to be the Macallan master distiller. In 2002, he teamed up with brothers Jon and Mark Geary for their range Jon, Mark and Robbo’s. All names are as funky as their whiskies: The Fresh and Fruity One, The Rich Spicy One, The Smokey Peaty One… We like it. The trio disbanded again in 2010. Their aim was to make Scotch approachable and fun and to shed snobbery. We think they succeeded!
