When you need a stiff drink to unwind, nothing should come between you and your spirit of choice. Unlike ice, which spurs you to throw back your rye before it gets watered down, pre-chilled Whisky Stones® won’t melt. Made from Vermont soapstone, the non-porous cubes won’t absorb or alter the essence of whatever you’re sipping. They’re an ingenious way to keep your spirit chilled and unadulterated.
stone doesn't hold the amount of coldness that ice does. Google it.
If you don't want to water your bourbon down, freeze larger shards of ice. The density and lower surface area keeps it from melting as fast.
Also, drink faster.
you need a lot of this. these whiskey stones don't stay cool pretty long. I like how it doesn't dilute my whiskey but the fact that I have to change pretty often makes it annoying to use these instead of ice.
I was so excited about these, but they fail: they idea is to cool the whisky without changing the flavor (from the addition of water), but these stones add a flavor of their own. I can taste them, and it's not pleasant. The also didn't seem to cool the whisky well at all, despite claims that they stay colder longer than ice.
Nice idea, great back story - the quarry they come from. Plus you can never have too much soft porous stone in your life. But, after a couple of months, they pick up a feint freezer burn taste that really doesn't do much for your drink. So you really shouldn't store them in the freezer, but then they'll never be ready to go when you want them. They need to chill at least 4 hours b/f you use them, and even then they don't seem all that cold, def not cold enough to have any impact on your drink temp.
I'm surprised to see such consistently positive reviews for these. We'd tried them before they came in the box and found them to be a terrible let down. They kept the drink cold for only a few minutes, warmed up very quickly, and as an added bonus cracked our glass. Aware that they were rocks, we'd even set them down in the glass quite carefully, but tipping it to drink from, when they tumbled over each other the glass didn't stand a chance.
If you only want to quickly drink an ounce or so, and you have really thick and chunky glasses, I imagine the stones would work for you. To me at least, that is too particular of a situation to warrant storing another thing in the freezer. It seems more worthwhile to just use a chilled glass, or put the drink in the freezer for 10 minutes before enjoying.
Might be really nice if I drank but I don't have any use for these. Guess I could give them to someone as a gift.
The stones don't seem to get as cold as ice does, nor do they stay cold for very long. My whiskey was back to room temperature after just a couple sips.
Maybe I have a particularly warm hand, but I gotta tell you, they don't keep my drink cool. Constantly disappointed. They do dazzle guests though. And are very manly.
I love to have a nice Scotch to wind down at night. The single cube was my way to go prior to this purchase. I just don't think these rocks give enough chill. I'm back to my single cube.
These are good stones for your whiskey. The only bad thing is is that they get warm quickly. It helps to have the whiskey chilled when you use them. A plus is that with using these stones, your drink doesn't get diluted.
