Whiskey: for optimal tasting, it’s best served around 60 – 65°F (15-18°C), but adding ice can actually dilute some of the flavor notes. So how can you chill your whiskey without diluting it? With whiskey stones, of course. Or, in this case, whiskey grenades. Fire in the hole!
Created by The Wine Savant and available on Amazon (affiliate link), the 1.8″ grenades are constructed from 304-grade stainless steel and are ready for use in less than an hour in the freezer. They come in a four-pack and include a storage bag and tongs so you can place the grenades in your drink instead of lobbing them in like actual grenades and breaking all your glassware.
Of course, wanting to make sure your whiskey is at optimal tasting temperature to express all the intended flavors is assuming you’re drinking a whiskey you actually want to taste, and not the back-alley swill I drink. The stuff I drink is best poured directly past your taste buds, where you hope it goes down and stays down.
