Laphroaig 20 Year Old Hunter Laing Kinship / Feis Ile 2018 - 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! 

To celebrate the coming completion of their Ardnahoe distillery on Islay, Hunter Laing has released a second selection of 6 bottlings, following on from the original Kinship collection in 2017.

The 2018 Kinship collection was released exclusively to visitors of Islay's Feis Ile festival, and were available to buy at the Ardnahoe gift shop.

The other five featured distilleries are Islay's Bowmore and Bunnahabhain, islander's Jura and Highland Park, and Campbeltown's Springbank. Casks were hand selected by Jim McEwan.

This Laphroaig was from 2 refill hogsheads. One of 470 bottles.
