    I think it's filled with water, or with nothing.

    I don't know, it might work. But $29.99 worth? I don't think so. Not to me anyway.

    Their take on the filling: "The magic behind this is a liquid core of a top-secret substance that freezes solid". H2O? Probably not ... water expanding would make a nice bomb out of it.

    My question is what metal is it and do you think it would leave a taste?

    $30 bucks .... maybe a nice geek gift.

    They said stainless steel was the metal. Stainless is used a lot in cooking and distilling. As is my understanding, it used because of it's neutral properties. Remember that the HIrsch was pulled out of barels and put in SS to end the againg process.

    As far as the "bomb" effect, I think not. Almost any metal should be able to contain the force exerted by the expansion of water. JMO.

    I remember Mr Wizard using a freeze bomb. I couldn't find any video but if you want to try yourself:

    Depending on the glassware, swishing your drink around could blow the side right out of your glass. Heavy metal object, thin glass wall...hummm

    It looks kind of cool but what if you swallowed it? Have fun trying to pass that! Also, I often prefer to warm up my favorite amber liquid with my hands in order to release the aromas.

    You would just have to leave a bubble of air in it to take up the pressure as it expanded.

    Thre are certainly substances that absorb more heat than water ice when it melts. I would imagine they would use that.

    i am not sure i would spend $30 on that...but if there was enough eyewitness testimony to convince me, i might -but not necessarily for bourbon drinking. it seems like a cool gadget.
