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.

Interested in finding out more?
Easy...why not join our mailing, keep up to date with the world of whisky and better still, receive offers at below retail prices! And I'm always up for a chat!

A New Spirit
For 2014!

For The Last Time...
Hazelburn 10yo Rundlets & Kilderkins
700ml 50.1%

A Rich Triple Or Even Tipple!...

Now I am led to believe that this is final R&K from Springbank. This time those small 60 and 80 lt casks are used with Springbank's tripe distilled whisky, Hazelburn.

In Springbank's words, "Elegant yet complex with a combination of spices, sweeter candy notes, butterscotch, marzipan and sugared almonds. A rich oily texture is derived from its maturation in small casks"

From Whisky Advocate, "Malt, chocolate & honey, unctuous, rich, soft fruits, almonds, brittle toffee & lots of spice. 88pts"

The Collectors
Den!

How Old?
Cadenhead Glenfiddich 1973
41yo Bourbon 700ml 43.1%

 Only 96 Bottles Produced!

Well, what can I say? The world's most famous distillery, renowned for not releasing their whisky to independent bottlers. But take a look at the age! Forty one years old and still lightish in colour. And get this...only 96 bottles were produced.

Caskstrength.com wrote, "Palate: Rich and oily, it starts off with apricot jam, dark chocolate-dipped candied orange, some more sandalwood, cinnamon sticks and ginger. Rich and mouthfilling, this could have been dry and woody, but it is as refreshing as a dewy walk through an autumnal wood at dawn. Overall: Rich with great woody notes, a full body and lots of fresh fruits. Fantastic."

The Odd Whisky Coy
Whisky Of The Week

So Very Good...
Longrow NAS*
700ml 46%
 
But In Such Short Supply...

Brand new and what a beauty it is. Lean, clean and loaded up with peat. This whisky is intense and long with a hint of citrus fruits.

As one pundit it put it, "A great entry-level offering from Longrow perfect for Islay fans looking for something a bit different." Bravo Longrow! Total allocation = 48 bottles!!

* No Age Statement

 

Whisky Of The Month
For July...

The Mystery Dram!
Blackadder Raw Cask Blairfindy 1997
16yo 700ml 54.1%

  But I Bet You Can Work It Out!

 
Love the name, but where's it from? I'll let Robin explain, "Blairfindy is a single malt from the only family owned distillery on Speyside at Marypark, Ballindalloch. For legal reasons we can never put the actual distillery name of this whisky on the label. We use the name Blairfindy because this is the name of the farm that the owning family, the Grants, came from.".

Still haven't got it? Give me a yell! And some words of wisdom from Mr Tucek, "A nose of chocolate mousse, bananas and some pears, sweet to taste with hints of sherry. There is some slight saltiness in the tail."

What I'm Drinking
At The Moment..

So Young Yet...

Chichibu 2008 3yo Ichiros Malt
The First 700ml 61.8%

So Amazing...

From Japanese fanatic Dramtastic, "Nose: Lots of leafy notes to start. Bourbony. Cola, cigar leaf, some floral notes, bread dough, lemon, pork crackling, strawberry, butter menthols, fish sauce, mashed potatoes. Palate: Neat, it’s big on hot spices; vanilla, cola, tobacco and strawberry. With water, lots of barley sugar, more vanilla, sweet orange, ginger, honey and bubblegum. Finish: Is long and malty with tobacco, mushrooms and sweet spices. Last Word: Chichibu is officially on the whisky map and how! Rating: 86/100"

What's Hot
In Scotch..

The Budget Smokester...
Duthies Islay
700ml 46%

Makes A Return...

A blended single malt whisky from hailing from Ilsay that has been a favourite of TOWC buyers for quite some time.

In Cadenhead's words, "Nose: Peat; smoked cheese; kipper's; leather; iodine. Palate: Dances on the tongue. Burning embers; peat; heather. A long finish. An ideal dram for a cold winters day."
