Australia's only specialist on-line whisky retailer. So if you are looking for fine, rare, odd and downright drinkable single malt whiskies plus other amusing dark spirits, then this is the place for you! Direct to your door, my aim is to give the Australian malt drinker the latest and greatest in single malt whiskies and lots, lots more.
And now, you can follow me on the very new fashioned...
And Trade enquiries are most welcome!
So who am I?
My name is Graham Wright: you may remember me from the old Baily & Baily days in Adelaide, where we built up one of the largest retail outlets for single malts in Australia. Well I've moved on. And so did my customers. With a little nudging from them, the team at Oddbins Wine Auctions and my old boss, Martin Baily, I set up the Odd Whisky Coy. So you could say that we are still keeping the "spirit" well and truly alive in Oz.

Wolfburn 3yo 2016
Scotland's Latest Offering!
Well it's finally arrived! Scotland's newest distillery with an actual single malt for sale. This release comes from the spirit distilled for the first time since 1866 in 2013.
For the moment I am going to let Dave Broom at ScotchWhisky.com describe this brand new dram, "Sweet, softly fruited, but feisty, and even at 46% it needs water. This reveals the youth, but the spirit is clean and characterful, soft and slightly unctuous and showing good weight. Score: 8/10."

The Weekly Dram
Peated 700ml 48%
A very limited release from the chaps at Great Southern Distillery. A relatively young whisky with a very moderate dose of peated malt.
Great length, lively spirit with a touch of saltiness, crisp malt and then you get the gentle dryness of the spicily smokiness of the peat. And there is a nice touch of lingering honey sweetness at the end.

Whisky Of The Month
Big & Solid...
Springbank 12yo Cask Strength
11th Release 700ml 53.8%
And Quite Enticing
This is the 2015 bottling of this most popular full strength whisky. With this 11th Release, the maturation has gone to 70% sherry oak and 30% bourbon, a subtle change from the 9th Release.
In Springbank's word's, "Lip licking - thickly buttered gingerbread, sticky toffee pudding and crème brûlée. Cream and butter really coat the mouth in classic Campbeltown style."

A single cask offering from the Breton producer Armorik. A soft and fruity malt made from local French barley using local French oak for maturation.
It’s a single malt but it does has a very pleasant distinctive style.

Straight Bourbon Batch 006
Fresh & French Oak!
Haven't done much with bourbon in 2015, so when this one popped up, it did grab my interest.
Made from corn (51%), rye (31%) and barley and of course new American oak but with the addition of extra maturation in French oak barrels.
