Some people like neat drinks. Some prefer on the rocks. I think it is very cool to be able to chill your drink (if only slightly) without diluting. Thoughts?

    I love big ice cubes or an ice ball mold.  Really does make a huge difference in not diluting the drink too fast.  

    I don't always use ice, but when I do, it's a ball.

    Been trying to find ice balls that fit my fancy whiskey glasses, but my balls are too big. So I am using half moon ice.

    May have to try Soapstone whiskey stones.....

    Just read an interesting article says steel ice (gel center) does the best job.

    Sounds like a personal problem.  I'm sorry I had to.

    Depending on what you're trying to accomplish, the medium varies. I can't speak to the stainless steel thingys whether or not they have a gel center because I haven't tried those. I HAVE tried the whiskey stones. 

    If you've read anything at all about whiskey stones, you already know that they're not intended to chill your drink like ice does. Their purpose is simply to lower the temperature of your drink by a degree or two as an aid to dissipating the ethanol in whatever you're drinking. It's the ethanol that causes that burning sensation in your throat. 

    If you use whiskey stones thinking you're going to keep your drink cold, forget it.  :#
