Handcrafted Premium Granite Whiskey Chilling Stones
The first thing that jumped out to me when I opened the Gift Set from ROCKS Whiskey Stones was the quality. The stones are handcrafted granite & a remarkably high quality gift sets for an exceptional whiskey tasting experience. These stones are designed to be The Connoisseur’s Choice the perfect fit for premium whiskey from famous distilleries and premium bourbon whisky.
Inspired by Scottish travellers, the “On The Rocks” expression is traced back to the 1940s. Cold river stones were cleaned and used to cool down whiskey while on the road. Scots also did not like their whiskey diluted with water, therefore using natural stones were the perfect solution.
I choose to try these stones with 2 different Irish Whiskeys and 1 Bourbon. Firstly I decided to use one of my favourite Irish Whiskey “Powers Gold Label” which is a fantastic blend of Single Grain and Pot Still Irish Whiskey. Next I choose one of my favorite new release from Lambay Irish Whiskey “Lambay Malt” a blend of 3 single malts, as I wanted to test the stones with a complex blend. Lastly I wanted to pick a bourbon that was easy to find but had big flavours, so I choose my go to bourbon “Woodford Reserve” just because I love it!!
I wanted to see what effects the stones had on the flavour profile, how well the stones chill the liquid and the overall experience.
These solid round granite stones cooled the drinks without the dilution effect found from traditional melting ice which always alters the true taste of the spirit. The stones didn’t actually change the flavor profile of the whiskeys I choose, but they added to the experience. It was a hot day here in Dublin, Ireland when I tried these stone, I had been painting the house all day and I needed a cold drink. The ROCKS Whiskey stone cooled the drinks perfectly, if you live in a hot country, this is what you need on a very hot day!!
Powers Gold Label, when I added The ROCKS stones into the tumbler glass that I made this drink in, they made the perfect clinking sound. This serving is a 71ml pour from a Baby Powers bottle. Powers is a oily whiskey and the liquid coated the stones allowing them to cool the drink quickly, it also looked great in the glass.
Lambay Malt is a very tropical, floral drink which has layered complex flavours. The ROCKS whiskey stones add a summer feel to this drink.
Woodford Reserve is a woody, full body bourbon and is very popular in southern states of the US. Traditional melting ice alters the true taste of this whisky and for me ruins the drink. Next time I’m in Texas in 110+ degrees F I’ll be reaching for my ROCKS Whiskey Stones!!!
