Love him or hate him, you can not deny his profound influence on the worlds of liquor. It is with mourning that I pass on the news of Michael Jackson's passing as announced on

For clarification:

Mr. Jackson was a world renowned author who had devoted his life to liquors of all sorts, though he is most famous for his work in the Beer and Whiskies circles. His insight, wisdom, and humour will be missed... even if he could be (what Jim Murray referred to as) a "prat".

Damn. For a moment I honestly thought you were talking about that mask-wearing creepy freak.

Do you REALLY think I'd bother posting about -him-? Nope. The only MJ who matters to me is the Whiskies author.

I will raise a brew to him tonight. Thank you for the notice.

Ah... I'm pretty sure that Jim didn't say that Michael was a prat so much as I said he was a prat. Not to speak ill of the recently dead, but Jim may have implied that Michael was a prat in that he was speaking of "people" who use flowery non flavor driven notes to describe whiskies as Michael did do but he didn't actually name him. Now that being said, he probably would have agreed if you asked him as I'm pretty sure they didn't get along. Of course, not too many people do seem to get along with Jim so that may not be too indicative of anything. Just to keep it straight.

Ah yes... my apologies to both you and Jim.
