There’s an ongoing debate among whiskey connoisseurs about whether you should serve the spirit on the rocks or neat, and there’s no clear answer in sight.

It is a matter of preference.

However, those who prefer their single malts chilled with a handful of ice cubes risk diluting the taste.

The simple solution is changing up the shape of your ice: Tovolo’s slow-melting, sphere-shaped ice molds ensure every sip tastes good going down. The unique shape is the perfect supplement to whiskeys, bourbons, scotches, and even sodas you want to drink chilled, but not watered down.

Considering how pricey certain bottles are, a $US9 ice mould seems like a reasonable amount to spend to keep your favourite spirits tasting their most spirited.

Tovolo Sphere Ice Molds, $US9.66, available at Amazon.
