I think you will find pretty much universal agreement among physicists on this point as well.  IME if you were storing your "stones" in liquid nitrogen until you need them they still might not chill it as much. 

 
I have zero doubt whatsoever that your experience in this area is conclusive.

 
I was going to get more physicsy but can't remember is it 80 calories* per gram going from ice to water? That's a lot of oomph for a few chips of ice.

*I know it's real calories not the food kcal but still

I got some of those "whiskey stones" that are in the freezer right now, but... I usually like the slight dilution an ice cube gives me, plus the chill... the melting takes out more heat than simply warming the stones... that is, a little ice chills better than a lot of rock. IME

{#Lol} that's funny

some folks enjoy bourbon or scotch at room temp or with an ice cube

for the purist that wants to chill, try stainless steel "ice" cubes

That's how I do my favorite—Woodford Reserve.  Sometimes I'll add a mini-cube or two.  I've come to bourbon recently and really have come to appreciate some.  But I have found many highly regarded bourbons to baffle me as to their appeal.   Mostly, I am a red wine guy.

 
The more exotic, the more "scotchy" they seem to become. I had some higher-end Pappy at Christmas and it's remarkably not much at all like your standard bourbon. Still bourbon, but with so much more going on. 

Our last two bourbons have been Trader Joe's... at $15 it's a great mixer but it's also fine neat. Not complex but very reminiscent of Woodford, altho I think it's probably closer to Buffalo Trace, but I've only had that once or twice...

I'm partial to Russell's Reserve but really the only thing drinkable and affordable here is Wild Turkey (affordable being relative - it's still $40). I usually make an Old Fashioned (a real one - not one of those Wisconsin things) or a Sazarac.

It's really good, get it with a slight chill and enjoy it neat.

That one was the Jefferson's Presidential select - very good stuff, I'd highly recommend it.   I also had some Angel's Envy this weekend. It was okay, but a little light and not up the the reviews I've seen.
