Whisky Stones

Postby Green Hornet » Tue Jun 07, 2011 12:21 am

I was wandering through the aisle of the Total Wine store and saw these on the end of the shelf. Too neat to pass up. They are soapstones that you freeze while dry and put them in the glass and they chill the nectar! No off tastes, it does not dilute the drink, does not scratch the glass. I thought it was kinda cool. I tried it with a couple ounces of Laphroaig tonight. Neat item. :mrgreen:

Any problems with them sliding down the glass and into your teeth when you're drinking?

I'm intrigued by these. I've been keeping an eye out for them here in Canada.

After extensive testing last night I found them to stay put in the bottom of the glass! They say to use 3. If I had put more in stacked up they would have rolled out for sure. Used as directed I was able to get all but the last few drops out of the drink.

Whisky rocks don't cut it for me, maybe it was an alternate hundreds of years ago when there was no clue as to what ice was, but not for me... :D
