product Details

Bunnahabhain 1997 American Oak 19 Year Old Feis Ile 2017 - Islay Defibrillator Challenge

This bottle is being auctioned on behalf of the Islay Defibrillator Challenge, which involved local paramedic Joe Hughes circumnavigating the island in his kayak in order to raise funds to purchase between 3 and 5 defibrillators for the Islay community. Access to defibrillators can improve a cardiac arrest victim's chances of survival from 6% to 74%, and improved nationwide access to the lifesaving equipment would save thousands of lives each year. Covering a total distance of around 135km, Joe's Islay Kayak Challenge took 25-30 hours - quite an endeavour to which congratulations are certainly due! We at Whisky Auctioneer are pleased to have the opportunity to help support such a worthy cause and hope that you all bid generously! 

A single cask bottling of Bunnahabhain. Distilled in November 1997 and bottled for 2017 Feis Ile. 

Bottle number 376 of 528.
