A family member who drinks scotch was given these as a gift last year, and loves them.

How long can these hold their temperature? Could I replace these for the clear, melty things I put in my soda?

They either have a lot of these or someone forgot to start the woot off lights.

Somehow I think these things will absorb odors and end up being as worthless as a rock.

Cheaper then thinkgeek.

Just don't expect this to be an ice replacement for sodas etc. Really only get these if you actually drink whiskey, and want the temperature SLIGHTLY chilled....or if you want to look cool.

I love my whisky stones! I use them constantly!

They are also great for mixed drinks and other beverages that you wouldn't want to water down!

Enjoy!

Happy Chanuka Shmuel. If you buy these as well, I guess you'll have lots of stones

Wait what? oh someone else... sorry, thing in my ear.


As for how well these work, I like them. bought them when they were available a few weeks back, and have used them a couple times. they're the smaller of the 2 varieties they have, and I figure the larger ones probably hold cold longer, but the do a decent enough job of dropping the temperature of my scotch without overly diluting it like adding too much ice would.

I've gotta nice set of stones myself. Sent to me from England. These work well to cool it down, but not so well to heat it up. You have to keep swapping stones in and out to slowly heat it; which becomes a chore.

You can,they aren't replacements for icecubes. . . I suggest using them in the liquids they're advertised for. These stones need to sit in the freezer overnight before use and if you use them in anything with sugar they will leave gunky residue even after wash. I leave em soaking in water for a day after used with mix drinks.

I'm using some right now that I got off one of the other woot sites. They don't stay cold as long as the manufacturer says, and are a MASSIVE disappointment.

I'm glad that they "will not react to household cleaners." Many of my beverage enhancers are greatly offended by Pledge®, Pine-Sol®, and they can't stand Mr. Clean®.

Got a set from thinkgeek.com for hubby for last Christmas. They do the trick. But he complained it didn't get the drink COLD enough. But fun either way!

So is the issue that they don't chill for very long, or that they don't chill very cold? What if you like to sip your whiskey over a long period of time? Just curious, really.

As a drinker of whiskey and whisky alike, I have to personally say that I've never liked whiskey stones. I always drink my liquor neat, but I liked the idea of stones so I bought a pack once and tried them. They sound much more graceful on paper than the actual result--and hopefully no one will be around the first time you carefully tip your glass back for a sip of scotch and you get pummeled in the face by a cube of alcohol-soaked marble.

However, you know, if you already know you want whiskey stones then, well, these would do I reckon.

I just can't find a price to compare to $5.99 now.

I got these for Christmas last year. I'd ballpark their cooling capacity at about 1/5 regular old ice. Plus, they make things taste a bit like rock. From Earth to Earth these things went.

Well at least by the map you can tell which states have the most alcoholics. Happy wooting and goodnight!

How do these compare to ice cubes? If I filled a cooler with like 900 of these things, would it stay cold for days?

They chill for a good while, just not to an ice level. Don't get me wrong, if you're sipping whiskey, get these bad boys!

I just made the mistake of thinking it would replace ice forever.
