According to Wikipedia, the first appearing of the Rob Roy was in New York City around 1890. The drink is named for the Scottish folk hero Robert Roy MacGregor.
Just like the Manhattan and the Martini, a Rob Roy can also be made Dry (with Dry Vermouth instead of Sweet Vermouth) or Perfect (with half Dry Vermouth, half Sweet Vermouth)
Some would call the Manhattan the most classic cocktail, or the King of Cocktails.
