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.

Burgundy Finish 700ml 43%
Ah, I've been eagerly waiting on this one, th ebig malty Tullibardine spirit being partially matured in French oak that once contained my most favourite: red Burgundy (AKA pinot noir).
Tom Canavan in Whisky Notes wrote, "Sweet and spicy on the nutty palate, with eating apples, cranberries, and a silky texture. Allspice and damsons in the lengthy finish. 3 stars."

The Weekly Dram
Out Of The Square...
So is this Caol Ila light?
This no age statement, young dram, possibly an 8yo, came out to the Friends Of The Classic Malts series released a few years back. All bourbon oak matured and still showing plenty of peat but in a toned down style. The mouthfeel has been described as silky.
From Whisky Notes, "An elegant introduction to Islay, less bold than the standard bottlings. "

Whisky Of The Month
A Breton Wonder...
Breton Oak Sherry Oak
New French & Sherry Oak!
This distillery has been around since the 1990’s with the first single malt being launched in 1987. So that have been around for quite some time.
The Double is a lively style that is matured in both new Brittany grown French oak and more traditional sherry casks. And the taste? Loads of citrus and apple flavours, a hint of pepper and loads of oak and creamy malt flavours.

What I'm Drinking
At The Moment..
Cadenhead Small Batch Glen Grant
1995 19yo Sherry Butt 700ml 58.4%
So It's Back To Sherry Basics!
A curious note from Cadenheads, "This distillery was the first to have electric light when it was installed in 1861." So there!
Cadenhead describe this whisky as a, big Glen Grant without being over the top. Lots of chocolate and a hint of spice in the finish." Sounds good considering a lot of Glen Grants on the market are a touch of the light and fruity style. Oh the joys of sherry butt maturation.
Only 1086 bottles released.

Paul John Brilliance
And It Is!...
Move over Amrut, there is a new kid on the block. Copper pot stills, locally & Scottish sourced barley, ex bourbon barrels and climate controlled maturation.
Jim Murray was impressed giving the Brilliance 94.5pts, declaring, "yet another astonishing malt from India."
And as one blogger put it, "Sweet fruit, honey and a tingle of cinnamon spice."
