The World Atlas of Whisky

Ultrics Ice ball maker

Euro 11.38

Traditional ice cubes will cool his whisky, but they melt quickly and the result is the whisky gets diluted. Erasing some of the taste notes in the process. The Ultrics ice balls don’t just create unique ice that will make any party drink look more interesting, but because the shape has less surface area it melts slower while still dropping the temperature of the drink.

Still not convinced and want a suggestion on which Whisky to give. Try the Macallan Double Cask Single Malt Whisky. This Whisky has the best of two worlds. Aged in American oak casks and then brought to Spain where they get mixed with Sherry and then get aged in European casks. This is a whisky with a story to taste so to say. The result is a 12 year old whisky with a delicate wood and vanilla profile balance with the fruit and spice of sherry.
