Jackson, of course, writes about all varieties of whiskey, including bourbon.

I can only offer my best wishes to Michael and his family. I am sure that I echo the entire communities hope that he is able to continue pursuing his passions in life. He has contributed greatly to the appreciation and understanding of our favorite pastime.

I met Mr. Jackson at the a whisky show at Tavern on the Green in 2006. He was a great guy and wonderful to speak to. I wish him the best.

I've had the wonderful experience of attending several of his scotch tastings over the years. He is a delightful, charhing man. My best wishes go out to him.
