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!

Just In...
Paul John Edited
700ml 46%

A New Sub Continental Star!

Copper pot stills, locally & Scottish sourced barley, ex bourbon barrels and climate controlled maturation.

Need I say more, especially as Murray in his 2014 Bible gave it whopping 96.5pts, stating, "A world class whisky to talked about with reverence without doubt..." Fine, complex, full of choc mint and a pleasing light peatiness.

The Collectors
Den!

  Very Limited...
Lagavulin White Horse Distillers
16yo 750ml 43%

 Only One Left...

RARE GEMS A bygone era of whisky production.

An old White Horse Distillers labelled Lagavulin. I suspect it's a bottling from the 1980's as the distributor was Stewart's Of Edinburgh (NSW) and it's a 750ml bottling.

Pic is of the actual bottle.

Whisky Of The Month
For October...

The Gentle Giant...
Bunnahabhain 18yo
700ml 46.3%

  Yet Exciting & Enticing...

 
For sheer excitement and pure joy, I really don't think you can go past this beauty: The Bunny 18 is a truly magnificent malt, as it introduces weight and richness to the palate and a honey note to the nose, but there’s still the trademark salt tang there as well.

There’s a nice big dose of sherry oak that adds a raisined fruit, spice & nut element to the mid palate. The finish is dry & spicy with a hint of salt.

What I'm Drinking
At The Moment..

So Very Well...

Ardbeg Auriverdes
700ml 49.9%

Poised & Balanced.

This is current 2014 Ardbeg Day Release. It's supposed to be all about football but this dram is so highly intriguing and highly engaging

This nose is unmistakably Ardbeg but in a slightly toned down style. But on the palate is where it shines as the bright and highly peated spirit works oh so well with the fabulously sumptuous oak. Almost perfectly balanced, complex and highly tasty.

What's Hot
In Scotch..

For The First Time...
Three Ships 10yo South African
Single Malt Whisky 750ml 43%

Lively & Energetic...

This whisky comes from the James Sedgwick Distillery and while it was founded in 1886, it has only been making whisky since 1990.

Once again, that champion of new world distilleries, Jim Murray, rated it 91pts stating, "...if you are looking for a bit of rough, some entertaining slap and tickle: a slam-bam shag of a whisky - a useful port in a storm - then your boat may have just sailed in..."

TOWC
Weird Department...

From Where?
Benriach Birnie Moss
Intensely Peated 700ml 48%

Not What I Expected!

The lastest big, intensive dram from Speyside's smallest distillery, to which I have alwys found it challenging.

In their words, " this whisky displays an initial burst of black cracked pepper with creamy white chocolate flavours and hints of lime zest."


Members Price: $99
