Michael Jackson: 27 March 1942 – 30 August 2007

Posted in News on September 1st, 2007

A legend in the world of beer and whisky has left us. Michael Jackson, who we regularly quote for our professional tasting notes, passed away Wednesday night at his home in London. He was 65. All of us at The Scotchcast are saddened by this news. His interest in whisky, along with the books and articles he has written, have done a great deal to make this podcast possible. We ask that you join us in raising a glass to the memory and accomplishments of Michael Jackson.

Beannachd Dia dhuit Mr. Jackson,

Jeff, Chip, and Michael
