Episode 107: September 2, 2007

The world of whisky lost its greatest ambassador this week. Through his books, Michael Jackson gave us a vocabulary, and set words to our passion for the water of life. Michael passed away at his home August 30 after a long fight with Parkinson’s Disease and other health problems. In March, I had the chance to talk with Michael, and you’ll hear part of that interview on this episode, along with memories of Michael from Martine Nouet. Raise a glass if you will…to a man who now sips from the angel’s share.
