  • So this afternoon we're doing a battle of the drinks. We are ordering two different

  • spiked coffees. Sam is getting the Irish Coffee and I'm getting the Baileys Coffee. And we're

  • going to see which one is the tastiest.

  • So I've known for a while I've wanted to do an Irish Coffee taste test video but of course

  • I didn't know where to go.

  • While walking around the streets of Dublin we found a place that said: "This has got

  • the best Irish Coffee in the city."

  • So we're looking forward to trying it and seeing if it is the best.

  • What is in your Irish Whiskey? Tell us. Alright, so if you take a look over here you'll notice

  • that there is cream on the top. And then this is normal coffee which has been enhanced with

  • sugar. And the secret ingredient here is Jameson Whiskey. Oh, yeah!

  • Time to take a sip.

  • That must be good because you're chugging it. That is so good.

  • I mean I got a big gulp of cream because it is the first sip but I also really tasted

  • a lot of the whiskey and of course there is a really strong coffee flavor. And the sugar.

  • It is like basically having a dessert.

  • So I got a bit more of a feminine drink instead of whisky.

  • This one has Baileys cream liqueur. So let's try it.

  • Ooh, you can definitely still taste the alcohol in that.

  • Mmmmm.

  • Yeah, this is nice. And it is really sweet. Like Sam said about his it is almost like

  • a dessert in a cup. And it is really nice on a cold day.

  • So I'm just going to keep sipping. So basically it is the same as an Irish Coffee the only

  • difference being that there is Baileys instead of the Jameson Whiskey.

  • Yeah.

  • We're switching drinks here for a second.

  • The girly drink.

  • The Baileys.

  • That's really good. I actually prefer Baileys to Whiskey so I'm going to say the Baileys

  • wins out on the Irish Coffee.

  • So I guess it is time for me to try yours. I have a feeling I'm not going to like it

  • as much because I'm not a big whiskey fan. But here we go.

  • You have cream on your lips.

  • I like mine better for sure.

  • Mine is sweeter. This one is a lot stronger. It's got a kick to it.

  • And I feel like if I drank this whole thing I would tumbling by the time I walked out.

  • So Baileys for the win? Baileys for the win.

  • So you enjoyed those? Yeah, I think we're all done here. So in terms of price point

  • you're looking at about 4.95 Euro per drink. That's how much we paid over here.

  • And I think what really makes an Irish Coffee taste good is there is two main components.

  • The first is that they don't skimp out on the Whiskey or Baileys. That they put in you

  • know a generous amount of that.

  • And the other thing has to do with the quality of the coffee.

  • And both were excellent here. So I can give this place a really good score.

So this afternoon we're doing a battle of the drinks. We are ordering two different
