Whiskey on the rocks—no melting! Watered-down whiskey is now a thing of the past. These ice cube alternatives made from hand-cut granite keep whiskey cool without ever diluting it. Effective at retaining temperature for extended periods of time.

    Keep the rocks in the freezer and get them out to use to drink scotch without diluting the great taste of the scotch or other whisky. One order is enough for self and several guest ( put two rocks in each glass). Highly recommend. Just rinse and put back in the freezer when done.

    I am a single malt scotch drinker. And contrary to the rules, I like my scotch chilled. So I often add ice cubes. They chill the scotch nicely, but they also dilute the scotch. So when I saw the ad for the granite cubes, I thought what a great idea.

    I have had the 6 granite cubes for long enough to use them with about 6 glasses of scotch (over time !). What I discovered is that while they do not dilute (which is great), they really have some serious drawbacks. First the chill effect dissipates VERY quickly. So after the first two sips, the drink is not noticeably chilled. Second, in order to get real chilling impact you have to use all 6 cubes. But in order to do that you have to use a wide-bottomed glass. OK - I have those. But then when you take a sip - tilting the glass up to your lips, the 6th cube is way up on the top and begins to want to fall down on what you are drinking.

    Bottom line: neat idea but it did not work for me. Will go back to ice cubes and suffer the dilution.

    Perhaps if they were shaped as small ball bearings it might have worked better.

          These stones do not fulfill their purpose. They do not cool the drink more than 5 degrees (maybe). Even when they are used for a small shot of scotch.

          Comments about Arctic Rocks (Set of 6):

          We gave this set of Artic Rocks as gifts to a few friends over the Holiday Season. They were thrilled with them. A couple of people were familiar with the concept of the Artic Rocks, but had not seen this particular product. They liked these so much better and couldn't wait to get home to use them. The thought of not diluting their particular drink of choice was a good thing. They were really a big hit.

                  It's a great idea but they don't stay cold long enough to have much impact on the drink. And, of course, you need to remind some people that these are not "disposable." You don't want them thrown out.
