The eight soapstone cubes in the pack are reusable, and a perfect substitute for ice, chilling your favourite dram without diluting it.
The Whisky Rocks Pack is the perfect gift for any lover of whisky. Not only does the pack contain a book informing the whisky-lover about hundreds of whisky brands and distillers in Britain, Ireland and North America, there is a guide to the process of distillation and tasting notes. In addition to this, the pack contains eight soapstone cubes which can be placed in a freezer and dropped into a glass and used as a replacement for ice, one that doesn't dilute the golden liquid.
The author, Jim Murray, is one of the most respected men in whisky, on both sides of the Atlantic and his passionate views about Scotch, Irish, Rye and Bourbon are respected by those in the know. He writes in a unique style, with his passion coming through as he explains why a distillery is different to its neighbour maybe only a few miles away and showing how a slight variation in the distillation and/or storage process makes for an entirely different tasting experience. If you are already a connoisseur of whisky, want to become one, or just enjoy the occasional tipple, Whisky Rocks is as welcome as your favourite dram.
