O, Most Venerable One --
I hope with all sincerity that your aged bones and sinews have been rejuvenated by the benefit of restful sleep and a sweet drop of Heaven's Honey
I cannot pass up the opportunity to ask of you a three-pointed question:
1. Of all the distilleries you have witnessed reclaimed by nature, dismantled, or merely closed, which have caused you the greatest surprise?
2. Surely some of them showed great promise in their day (and your relative youth). (?)
3. Of those distilleries extant today, which seemed of old not worthy or likely of long life?
Sir Alfred, I await your comments with patience, and bid you Good Evening, with a Peaty Blessing for your Tired Soul
