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.

Cadenhead Aberlour 1989 23yo
Bourbon Cask 700ml 54.9%
I'm Always A Fan...
Very sexy black packaging and the new, beaut square bottle. In Cadenhead's words, "Nose: Blood oranges; a rich tomato sauce. A touch of chili spice with creamy undertones. Palate: Very orangey – triple sec – very rich. Soft spice comes through along with darker fruits, raisins and sultanas. Finish: Smooth and sweet. Peaches and mandarin orange segments."

This whisky is a blended malt whisky, what we used to call a vatting, made up of Edradour and other single malts. Definitely rare.
This whisky comes from a collection that was purchased by the owner between 1988 and 1992, hence this whisky could have been distilled either in the 1970’s or early 1980’s.

Whisky Of The Week
Aberlour A'bunadh Batch 46
And Oh So Drinkable...
Just in, Feb 2014 but released in Europe in Nov 2013.
Great review from Sanch on Connosr in Feb 2014, "This particular batch is one of the best I've come across. On the nose I get deep spicy cigar box notes ...But the palate is where this whisky really shines: A brief burst of warming spice is followed by sweet tobacco, dark chocolate and more figs. Beautiful. 92pts."

Whisky Of The Month
So Rich & Sweet...
Duthies Aberlour 17yo
Rare Indie Bottling!
You may have noticed, that I've always liked Aberlour, even if it is often generally overlooked by the whisky community. So to see an indie bottling is always a treat, especially when the dram is rich and sweet. Bourbon oak matured.
Official notes, "Nose: Tropical fruits and quite malty. Vermouth, white port and ginger shortbread. Palate: Elegant, hints of spice and more malty notes. Oily with hints of aniseed. Finish: Smooth and sweet with a pleasant lingering dry finish."

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."
Brand New Distillery
Steam Exchange Goolwa Moonlight
100% Malted Barley Spirit 51%
It's Certainly Whetted My Appetite...
Yep, it's a South Aussie Moonshine or new make made on the wharves at the port of Goolwa.
Coming from one our latest distillers, Gareth Andrew’s Fleurieu Distillery, has really started off with a bang. I was really knocked over by the quality of Gareth's spirit. It is so long, rich, oily, abundantly fragrant, intensive and yet, oh so clean. Great malt quality.
