A Taste of Dublin by Trevor Goslin


This past Saturday a group of us decided to go on the Jameson tour. The tour lasted for 45 minutes which covered the history of the whiskey, the process, and a taste of the whiskey. Our tour guide taught a lot in the short time, and also included stories of John Jameson himself. The final part of the tour included a taste test of the Jameson,  a Scotch whiskey, and an American whiskey. She explained the different tastes each one possessed, and what makes Jameson unique.

Following the conclusion of tour you received a ticket for one free drink to enjoy and take in the rich history. They had a lot of artifacts dating back from 1780 and have a display of every bottle they have produced. All in all i really enjoyed the tour and have a greater appreciation for the whiskey industry.

A few days later our class went to the Guinness Storehouse for a tour and a pint. I had the honor of bringing Sparty along on the tour. The tour is a self-guided until you get to the tasting room where they teach you how to properly drink a Guinness.

The Tour even has an advertising floor that displays some of their best ads over the years. They had a lot of ads saying “It’s a lovely day for a Guinness,” that had a different picture on it. At the very end of the tour you have the option to learn how to pour a perfect pint or enjoy one in their gravity bar. I took the gravity bar route and took in the views of Dublin while enjoying the best Guinness in the world.
