If you aren’t already reading “What Does John Know” (and if you’re not you should), there’s an interesting discussion going on with input from all sorts including Tim from The Whisky Exchange, the mysterious “Whisky Party“, Serge Valentin from Whisky Fun, Beer Guy Stephen Beaumont, John himself and of course me (because I can’t keep my mouth shut).
Now that he’s (Michael Jackson) gone, who is out there to pick up where he left off? Let’s just focus on whisky for the time being. Obviously there will never be another Michael Jackson, but is there a clear, emerging leader who whisky enthusiasts can gravitate towards and respect?
My initial answer:
The question isn’t “Will” someone replace MJ. The question is “Does someone need to”. The answer is “No”.
The discussion has now turned to new media vs. the old paradigm of the printed whisky guide.
The discussion has been great and is not likely to slow down.
