Hot on the heels of last night’s gin experiment I tried out whiskey rocks for the first time tonight.
The soapstone cubes are meant to chill your scotch without tainting it with melted ice cube water. Which is perfect, because I prefer my single malts slightly chilled at home. So I chose a nice 14 year old Oban to test them out.
The only downside to the rocks seems to be the fact that you have to wait an entire FIVE MINUTES before drinking. The rocks need that time to have an effect on the temperature. Which, you might understand, is interminable with a nice whiskey sitting there. However, I persevered and was rewarded with exactly what the packaging promised, a slightly chilled drink that goes in cold but warms you up inside.
And bonus points for the lovely packaging.
