0.6 Meeting family in CorkJuly 17 in Ireland
We had a 2.5 days stay in Cork. Much nicer city than Dublin I have to say. Good pubs, a little cleaner and also more interesting architecture. The University College of Cork (UCC) has just one campus with 18,000 students which is amazing. It has incredibly well preserved old buildings which are still used for educational purposes. I wish I had the chance to study there!
Especially the students, but in fact most Irish people, are ... lets say used to drinking alcohol. Mostly beer and whiskey. A must do for me was therefore to visit the Old Jameson Distillery where I bought a whiskey you can fill yourself, directly from the cask. The result is a 0.7 l bottle of Irish Black Barrel Whiskey with your own label, your now entry in the records and a lot lighter purse. The cask strength is 60.6 vol. % and it taste ... aaaawesome!
As every day, we also enjoyed the pub life in Cork downtown with the obligatory live music, which is really enjoyable (once you get used to it).
What a lovely day!Read more
