So I was extremely skeptical due to the hilarious marketing by Rick Ross...

...but I tried the Luc Belaire Rare Rose Sparkling Wine and it was actually quite decent for $23.

Good to know. The Meukow VS is just "OK", IMO.

The Pierre Ferrand 1er Cru De Cognac is pretty hard to beat for the price, again, IMO.

Use water that was already frozen then thawed. At least that is what the documentary on ice sculptures was saying, don't think I've ever tried it to see if it is true.

Put the ice mold inside a small cooler then put the whole thing in the freezer.

Use filtered water, don't bother boiling it.

If I'm drinking at home, I'm not too fussed about clear ice - that's more presentation than anything else.

Easier to get clear cubes. The fogginess is usually from the way the ice freezes and not necessarily impurities in the water. The easiest way is to fill a cooler 2/3 with water and freeze. When the big block comes out the top will be foggy and the bottom slower frozen part will be clear. Just cut up into cubes yourself from the clear part.

I don't really use ice in anything except for mixed drinks, which are almost always for guests, so the clear is a fun conversation point for just a little extra work. I already have a deep freezer which makes it much easier.

Over the last few weeks I have been savouring these beauties. The 27yo Panamanian is to die for! The Trinidadian smokey scotch barrel is pretty awesome too.
