Imbibing a cup of whiskey is just as simple as pouring and raising a glass to your lips, right?  Wrong. For the true connoisseur it takes a much more refined approach.  And part of that approach is the correct ice, provided of course you like your booze chilled with a hint of water – adding a bit of water to scotch can open up the flavor.

Last year we saw the ice ball mold which allowed you to instantly craft a ball of ice, that is assuming of course you had a chunk of ice to start with.  However, it cost a whopping $184 and that was for the smallest size.  Hardly a deal or a warranted purchase for the occasional drink, though it would bring some significant cache to your home made bar found in your dingy basement.  Fortunately, there is another resolve and a much cheaper one at that; the Roller Rock Glass.  It costs just a mere $21.95 and not only includes a food safe ice-ball mold, but a specially designed glass that forces the ball to roll around in the glass, supposedly unlocking the the aromatics of your drink.  Even better, since the ice is of a spherical shape it should melt more slowly since there is less surface area, or something to that degree.
