Bowmore 15 Year Old Sherry Cask / Feis Ile 2018 Bottle Number 1 - 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!
This bottle is the first of two releases in the Feis Ile 2018 Collection from Bowmore distillery.
This 15 year old was matured exclusively in first fill Oloroso sherry casks and bottled at cask strength.
Bottle number 1 of 3000.
Please note that the bottle has been signed.
