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.

The Odd Whisky Coy
2009 6yo 700ml 59%
Riverstown is an offshoot of Robin Tucek's Blackadder range and Benrinnes is another rather hidden Diageo distillery that feeds a relatively unknown blend called Crawford's 3 Star.
Now, given its age and its strength, have a read of this blogger's notes, "sweet, creamy, with rich honey notes and light smoky nuances."

Single Cask Edition
Morinsh 700ml 56.3%
Well, wonders never cease! I normally have little to do with the whiskies of George & JG Smith, but a limited edition of 270 bottles (those so well used words) did catch my attention, mainly because it is at cask strength.
From WhiskyNick, "bold, honey and ripe pears, rich, luxurious dark chocolate and sweet ginger flavours.”

Whisky Of The Month
It's A Single Malt...
A Drop Of The Irish
Now a cask strength version of an Irish single malt is always a treat, especially when it comes from the "world's oldest distillery" in County Antrim.
As one blogger put it, "spicy with a pleasant mouthfeel, finish: drying with white spices and pepper, a heavy whiskey."

What I'm Drinking
At The Moment..
Young & Feisty...
Wolfburn 3yo 2016
But very Drinkable!
From Dave Broom, "Well balanced. A peppery start – there’s that reposado again. 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, which will allow it to grow.
In Whisky This Spring...
A Smokey Treat...
Bright & Enticing!
It's peaty...and it's good.
The whisky is clean, bright and enticing. Peat is definitely to the fore, and I like the description of the smoke as being like smouldering old railway sleepers.
