I've been told that also, time will tell since there has not been an official announcement.

mickey is very nice bloke and im sure everyone will love him at ardbeg if he goes there.
he puts his heart and soul into jura and you tell tell this by how passionate he is when you talk to him, ive been over to jura 3 times, and each time he welcomes me as if im an old friend, the same way he treats everyone.
if this is true, its bad news for jura, you think islay is remote, you aint been on the road from feolin to craighouses...

Well, I'll be. I saw Mr Heads at the petrol station in Lochgilphead, and he didn't say a word.

Good for him, and good for Ardbeg, I think. I hope he will conduct tours, as he did at Jura. He'll be missed there--a trip to Jura is always great fun, and he was a big part of it.

I did in fact speak to him--took me a moment to place him! But I'm quite sure he was unaware that he was speaking to Mr Tattie Heid.
