A little sad, Bruce, that you feel it appropriate to have a dig at Mr Miller in this forum
Unless you were with Mr Miller 24 hours a day, you can't know where he was apart from when you both happened to be at Chivas events - unless, of course, that is where you both were all the time!.
In over 5 years on WM, Mr Miller undoubtedly spent more time with a wider range of whisky producers than another other journalist in the UK.
I am sure that such luminaries as Richard Patterson, Andrew Symington, Iain Henderson and many others would vouch for
Mr Miller's commitment to the industry.
And we should all remember that without Mr Miller - and, or course, Mr Riley-Smith, there would be no WM and no forum like this.
