It doesn’t matter if it is a bourbon, rye or whiskey; there are certain times that you don’t want to add ice. When you have an exceptional product, regardless of how high the proof, you want to experience what the master distiller envisioned when he crafted the bottle.
Adding ice waters down the product and ultimately radically changes the flavor profile. At the same time adding a few drops of water can unlock new tastes and flavors that you can’t get to without that water.
Whiskey rocks or stones, stored in your freezer enable you to bring the temperature down of whatever you are sipping without watering down the product. Ultimately they take up a tiny corner of your freezer and can be used forever so buy a set today and enjoy.
