Insincere sentence of the week

Or is it ironic sentence of the week?

I can never tell with the ever-excellent David Slack who comes from Kiwitea in the Manawatu, which is not far from Halcombe where my wife’s whanau is from, but that’s not the only reason we like him. Anyway, here he is at Public Address:
I am sitting at a long table in Clooneys about to begin a whisky degustation and I am thinking to myself “Whatever I write about this, I intend to make it as interesting and unpretentious as Peter Calder or Simon Wilson would.”
As Schumann said of Brahms: “Hats off, gentlemen, a genius.”
