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!

Blair Who?...
Blackadder Raw Cask Blairfindy
1997 16yo 700ml 54.1%

So Where's It From?

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 and we use the name Blairfindy because this is the name of the farm that the owning family, the Grants, came from.

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."

The Collectors
Den!

Blair Who Again!
Blackadder Raw Cask Blairfindy1986
25yo Refill Sherry Butt 700ml 49.7%

 Still Haven't Got It?

An older and sherried version of this most famous of Speyide distilleries that for legal reasons we can never put the actual distillery name of this whisky on the label. The owners are historically referred to as the "Blairfindy Grants".

From Robin Tucek, "Mouthfilling, fruity, lightly sherried with orange marmalade, spricot and hint of pineapple." And get this...there's gentle hints of peat and peppery spiciness in the tail!

What I'm Drinking
At The Moment..

A South Pacific Dream...

Berrys Fijian 2001 9yo
Rum 700ml 46%

Oh So Fruity...

Why not? Like the Carribbean, the Pacific and Australia is well know as sugar cane growers. So rum is part of this world as is it is in the Americas.

From David Driscoll, "This Fijian rum is the most tropical of the series (from BBR) - honey and sugarcane dance with coconut and tropical fruit on the nose. This would make the best pina colada or mai tai ever."

Moine 2006 6yo 700ml 60.3%

And So Very Peaty...

As they say, keep it young, keep it peaty!
