    Depends on the ambient drinking conditions. My wife, who is the cold whiskey drinker in the family (I drink it neat, at room temperature) likes to sit out on the the patio duing the summer. The bourbon warms up pretty quickly.

    I received a set of these as a gift and was told to keep them in the freezer. They do the job as advertised but the novelty is when a guest asks for whisky on the rocks.

    As for keeping whisky in the freezer, well, that's perfectly acceptable. It's your whisky, drink it as you like.

    I also received these as a gift a couple years ago. For some reason, I really enjoy these with rye whiskey and certain types of scotch. I think the coolness takes a bit of edge off, but not so much as melted ice. Otherwise, I don't notice much difference with bourbons and most whiskey, and they just get in the way.

    Chilling a bottle or glass makes sense as well, but I have a tiny freezer. Besides, my my bottles look much better on my shelf. I'd say if you can find these for $10 or less, pick them up on a whim and try it out.

    Re: Whiskey Stones?

    The wife got me a set of these.

    If you're looking to chill your whiskey they really don't work at all.

    However, I enjoy the weight they add to my glass. I don't know why.

    Whiskey Stones? A gimmicky fad and from the same fold as the "Pet Rock".

    I sure hope that pun was intentional... and if it wasn't, you need to claim that it was!
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    It has to chill them some, right? I enjoy my bourbon neat, at room temp or slightly cooler, not cold though. However, my room in the summer gets 80-85*. Hot bourbon is not as enjoyable. I was really considering some stones to keep in this freezer to cool my pours down to proper temp when it's hot as hell in my room. I keep my bourbon in my room since I have a house with roommates.
