Tovolo Sphere Ice Molds
Tovolo sphere ice molds chill your whiskey without watering it down. Unfortunately, a whiskey-n-water well usually happens when the ice melts too quickly in your whiskey. After that, however, you can enjoy your whiskey and bourbon cocktail a little longer.
But, of course, you don’t want your whiskey as much as you anticipated due to the ice melting too quickly. Therefore, you try to find a solution to keep your whisk(e)y cooler for a more extended period. The Tovolo Sphere Ice Molds solve the problem.
So, you decide on will it be ice cubes, whiskey stones, or a chill glass from the freezer? It’s a huge dilemma!
I have tried whiskey stones, but they proved ineffective. In addition, I found that they imparted a different flavor to the whiskey.
Still, I have discovered that if you are drinking whiskey that aged for long periods, or is cask-strength whiskey, then the Tovolo Sphere Ice Molds work!
Spheres to share
The Ice Molds come as a pair so you and a friend can sample individual younger whiskies or cask strength whiskies and compare them. In addition, the box provides instructions on freezing the ice sphere for 4-6 hours.
I initially froze both spheres for 6 hours in my freezer; only the sphere’s outer area was frozen during the process. However, the inner space of the sphere was still water. So I doubled the freeze time to 12 hours. I then ran warm tap water on all sides of the ice mold spheres as indicated in the instructions to release the ice mold. This process was much more successful.
The Tovolo Sphere Ice Molds create solid ice spheres that chill your whiskey or cocktail, taking much longer to melt than regular ice cubes. At less than $12, these molds make a great addition to your bar or gifts for your friends.
In conclusion, the Tovolo Ice Molds is an ideal choice on your own, with friends, or when hosting a small gathering of people. Your’s and everyone whisky flavor will last longer, and the sphere will retain its round shape. Also,
