Islay Festival Auction

Hot on the trail of last weeks stellar Fèis Ìle, we are excited to launch our exclusive Islay Festival Auction

The Whisky Auctioneer team were lucky enough to join the festival, but for those who were not able to make the trip don’t worry – you will find all of the new 2019 festival releases as well as some of the greatest bottlings from previous years in our auction.


2019 Official Festival Releases

Once again, 2019 saw at least one official release from each distillery during the Fèis (Islay devotees rejoice!). Explore Bruichladdich’s oldest Octomore release, exciting twists on traditional expressions from Lagavulin and Caol Ila as well as Ardbeg’s surprise single cask.


Bowmore 23 Year Old Fèis Ìle 2019

This years vintage Fèis Ìle edition is a spectacular 23 year old sherried single cask, of which there are just 325 bottles! Credit to all those who camped out in Bowmore’s legendary queue to get their hands on this highly-sought after malt!


Bunnahabhain 1988 Champagne Finish

Bunnahabhain certainly didn’t disappoint with their experimental 2019 Fèis Ìle releases. One of which is this vintage expression with an astonishingly unique Champagne cask finish. A limited run of only 120 covetable bottles.


2019 Hunter Laing Kinship Collection

At this years Fèis, the spotlight was on not only the proprietary bottlings, but also some fantastic indy releases including the third Kinship collection from Hunter Laing to celebrate the commencement of distilling at Ardnahoe.


Bunnahabhain 13 Year Old Marsala Finish with Signed Cask End

Aged for 13 years and finished in Marsala wood, this is number 50 of 100 bottles gifted specially to Fèis Ìle volunteers in 2017. Alongside this is a Fèis Ìle branded cask end, featuring an autograph from each of the Islay Distillery Managers.
All proceeds from the sale of this lot will go to the Fèis Ìle Committee, the charitable organisation behind the planning and running of the world’s most famous whisky festival.

On the run up to Fèis Ìle, we must not forget the four day event which celebrated the best malts Kintyre has to offer. Our auction also features some of these exclusive festival releases from Springbank, Glengyle and Glen Scotia.
