Midleton Dair Ghaelach is awesome. It’s just… wow. I had a hard time not drinking the entire sample in one sitting, I had to dig deep and find previously unknown reserves of self control to combat the desire to consume the entire thing in one go. It’s as if I was being drawn to it. Animal magnetism, but with whiskey – whiskey magnetism.

There are times
when the space within my head
is not a wise place to be.

There are times
when I could swear I just poured another,
yet my tumbler is already empty by the time it grazes my lips.

There are times
when I couldn’t imagine not having had her in my life,
yet … I still wish I never had.

There are times …
