Whisky Rocks

We have all seen the old cowboy movies where the hero walks into a saloon and orders a Whisky on the Rocks.  When I was young I wondered “What is Whisky 0n the Rocks?”   It wasn’t until I was older that I found out it was just straight whisky and ice.  I also learned that it wasn’t just limited to whisky but it could be used for all sipping drinks.

The draw back of using ice to chill the drink is that it also waters it downIf the drink gets watered down then you can’t enjoy it as much, so you have to drink it faster to prevent the water from diluting it and you can’t enjoy it as much.  If you are forced to drink your drink fast then it’s not a sipping drink any more.

If these aren’t ice what are they?

These Whisky Rocks or Whisky Stones are actually made out of SoapstoneThese are literally Rocks!  The main advantage of using these to keep your sipping drinks chilled is that you can’t dilute your drink.  These are not intended to keep your drink at a freezing temperature though, just to chill it.

There are plenty of whisky drinks out there these Whisky Rocks make Whisky on the Rocks the coolest of all the whisky drinks!  These have a very specific purpose they are intended to slightly chill your whisky, scotch, bourbon, vodka, or any other sipping drink! This is to help release the flavours from the drink while taking some of the edge off at the same time.

Warning These Are Made of Stone!

If you enjoy chewing on your ice while drinking, AVOID these because chances are they are stronger than your teeth!  If you love slamming back your drinks then you will probably have these rocks fly at your teeth when drinking!  So DO NOT use them unless you like to sit back relax and you actually enjoy a good glass of whisky, scotch, or bourbon after a hard day of work.  If you are the type of person who savours your beverages and has a sophistication that is attached to your drinking habits then these are for you!

I find these stones provide a moderate cooling effect on straight whisky and seem to promote better flavour recognition. Someone who likes an ice-chilling effect would not find them cooling enough. Besides the flavour effect is their aesthetically pleasing look in the glass and the bit of added ritual to fixing an end of the day drink. I give them 5 leaves for improving my whisky experience.
