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.

A Big Blast...
Nikka From The Barrel
Of Japanese Greatness...
World Whisky Award Category Winner in 2007 & 2010. This is Nikka's cask strength blended whisky, grain from Miyagikyou, malt from Yoichi, that has been an enormous hit with the drinks trade, bloggers and whisky experts alike. Matured in first fill bourbon barrels,
As Dramtastic says on the Nonjatta site, "Just excellent! Tons of big beautifully integrated spices, creamy nuttiness, nougat and malty goodness."

When It's Gone...
It Will Be Sorely Missed!
So once again, those innovators at Glenmorangie have pulled it off, using a highly toasted barley malt or to use the brewers terms, a chocolate malt, sourced from around Tain.
The resultant whisky was then matured in a combination of ex bourbon, Oloroso and get this, new oak casks as well! Pungent, perfumy, even afterhsvae, plenty of roasted malt flavours, along with sherry and Artisan cask richness, plenty of fruit cake characters as well.

Whisky Of The Week
The Triple Treat...
Clydesdale Auchentoshan 1991
21yo 700ml 56.5%
RARE You should know my feelings on Bladnoch by now: I just love them!! Classically full weight, creamy malt, richly oaked and triple distilled. And as usual, full bourbon oak matured.
This is a special bottling from Blackadder's very own Robin Tucek.
Whisky Of The Month
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%
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"
A Big Smokester...
Blackadder Raw Cask Smoking Islay
Rum Finish 700ml 60.5%
It’s bright, clean and intensive with the peat being held in check by the vanillin oak and crisp maltiness. You could almost call it precise because it is oh so well balanced. The use of rum oak has been kept in the background, so it’s more of a complexing agent than a primary flavour of this dram.
There is a very pleasing lingering maltiness and peatiness at the end.
