It does the Job, which is great...

As a bartender, I'm always on the look out for interesting items related to liquor that could potentially be conversation pieces. I came across these whisky stones by this same company on another website and I purchased a set.
These stones do get cold, but are not meant to radiate cold and chill whisky. If you prefer your whisky very cold, then you should stop drinking whisky and switch to soda.
I tried the stones, about 3 of them (after 3 days in the freezer) in about half an inch of American whisky (room temperature, which in Texas is like 72º) and to my surprise, the stones did cool it (not a lot) and made my whisky more flavorful. The next night, I tried them again with a different whisky, a French variety that I had brought back from Brittany (which is close to the Celtic region) Same set-up, 3 stones/.5 inch of whisky, and again the whisky was cool and then all these other flavors started to come out.
The stones work and I recommend that you do the research. If you are a serious whisky drinker, find out what the room temperature of your favorite whisky is and keep it at that. The stones are only meant to slightly cool and open aromas/flavors of your choice of whisky so that you may enjoy it the way that it is meant to be enjoyed.
