Whisky rocks

Has anyone ever used these?

Would you recommend them? Are the cheap ones as good as expensive etc?

I'll take that as a no then

Probably should have called them by their commercial name!

I freeze a glass in the freezer.

But they look just as handy.

You can buy plastic 'ice cubes' in almost any € shop.

Like these http://www.amazon.com/CoolBlues-Reus.../dp/B000PGOQNQ

Yeah I use them. They aren't as fast acting as ice(I don't use ice in whiskey mind just in relation to vodka drinks). If you want to get it properly chilled you have to lump in about 4 or 5.

I kinda like watery whiskey. Or rum is better, the technical term is "grog".

A small bit of water brings out flavour. One cube is best.
Whiskey kills!
