Autism ... you surprise me, how could you consider slipping a loaded question into any conversation with some poor guy trying to earn his wages? But I see he is a Master of Whisky, so he'll be difficult to catch out.
I suppose you could ask him if he thought United Distiller's (Diageo's) decision to close Rosebank and retain Glenkinchie as their Classic Lowland Malt was based on the quality and flavour of the whisky.
PS I would love to become a Master of Whisky ... I wonder is this an academic qualification or would Diageo award one to me.
Mr Heffernan is a highly regarded speaker on Scotch whisky.
