Welcome to The Odd Whisky Coy!
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.

Mr Tim, You've Done It Again...
Brand new for April 2013, this is a massive, massive malt BUT very sweet and creamy. Loads of honeycombe, sweet, biscuity malt, iin fact me thinks this is the finest definition of malt in an Aussie whisky I have ever seen.
In a word: brilliant!

And Some Peat...
Bakery Hill Peated Cask Strength
Australia's Best Peated Dram...
It amazes me that the increase in alcohol is not just "an increase in alcohol" attack on the palate. Cask strengths just have a habit of revealing more complex flavours and textures than their softer cousins.
And this cracker from David Baker is no exception. The peat is intensified, there's an earthiness and cherry/berry flavours not seen in the 46% and on the palate it is just explosive. And it's all in balance as there is plenty of creamy oak and malt to balance up the high strength alcohol. Great stuff David Baker.

What I'm Drinking
At The Moment..
A Touch Of Nostalgia...
Old Style Longrow......
Compared to the 10yo and the 10yo 100 proof, the 14yo introduces a bit more depth, a touch of elegance and has a couple of Longrow sherry casks thrown in for good measure.
Cream, apricots, chocolate & burnt embers. And as with a lot of Springbank Distillery bottlings...it's no longer made.
Full Sherry Matured...
Time To Say Goodbye...
As there is only a handful left!
The 15yo shows a change in tack for Springbank, as this has a big dose of sherry oak going through still relatively dry and intensive, but mid palate the dark chocolate and rich toffee notes kick in.
“Like a storm gathering off the Kintyre coast. Dark & ominous…”
