Ultra-slow melting ice balls quickly cool your drink without watering it down
The Whiskey Ball is a spherical ice mold that makes jumbo ice balls for classic cocktails. Invented by avid scotch-whiskey drinkers, The Whiskey Ball overcomes drink dilution by producing a long lasting 2.5" sphere of ice. More volume and less surface area results in slower melting than any traditional ice cube. Now, consumers can bring the artesian science of slow-melting ice spheres to their home without any complicated or expensive machinery.
Works great with pitchers, water, coffee, classic cocktails, vodka, whiskey, tequila, and scotch. Jazz up any ice ball with food coloring, herbs.

When I received the items, I was somewhat surprised as there was no Whiskey Ball packaging included. The two molds were wrapped in a bubble-wrap type substance within the Amazon box. There were no care instructions or anything I would expect from a new (not used) item. One other criticism I have is that water expands when frozen, so I don't advise filling the whiskey ball all the way to the top. What would have been useful and cool would be to include a recommended fill-line on the molds so I don't have to keep tinkering with the correct amount of water. Obviously, this isn't a huge deal, but would be a nice-to-have.
In terms of usage, I froze my first whiskey ball today and was pleasantly surprised how easy it was (sans fill-line mentioned above). The mold came off the frozen ice very easy but I did have overflowing (have I beaten the dead horse enough?). The ice was cracked, but I look forward to experimenting with different techniques in the future (boiling the water first, distilled water, etc.).
Overall, I would rate this as a decent start if you are looking for a whiskey ball. If you are serious about your bourbon, the search for the perfect ice cube continues.
Update: One way I've found to get rid of the cracks is to freeze solid... then take the mold out for about 30 mins to an hour and let the top layer melt, then refreeze. This fills in the cracks.
Highly recommend. The only bad thing I can say is that my ice ball cracked in half around my 3rd glass. Didn't bother me though.
