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.

Go on, take the challenge!

Whisky Of The Month
A Dram That...
An Cnoc 12yo
Just Draws You In!
This mid-weight dram has an intriguing and very complex presence on the palate that just draws you in, enticing you to sample more and more.
The spirit is delicate and enticing but the oak is full and creamy: fat and mouthfilling. But then you start tasting the barley, citrus, the mild pepper and all spice flavours that livens up the middle palate. Great length too.

Another Big Hit At...
Paul John Brilliance 700ml 46%
Sydney Whisky Festival!
We tasted this at a big Sydney Whisky Festival two weekends ago and it turned out to be quite the star.
Mr Paul P John making the bold move in 2012 of getting into the quality end of the single malt business. 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."
