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.

Sauternes 700ml 43%
Lush & Sweet!
Another welcome back into the fold of another TOWC old friend, Tullibardine. Now owned by French based company Picard Vins & Spitueux, both the distillery and the brand have been revitalised.
The 225 refers to the cask size and pleasingly, the Sauternes cask comes from the well-known Ch Suduiraut. Good to see it at 43%, sad to see no age statement.

Caol Ila 14yo Unpeated Sherry
Special Release 700ml 59.3%
Only A Handful Left...
Unpeated Caol Ila...well I never! But has proved very popular due to it's very limited nature and of course, been a full sherry Caol Ila also makes it a rareity as well.
As for the lack of peat...I still reckon there is still some in there. Distilled in 1997

Whisky Of The Week
The Gentle Giant...
Aberlour 16yo Double Cask
The combination of Bourbon & Sherry maturation, leaves this malt lusciously smoothe and sweet. But there's a nice touch of spiciness that combines with the gentle oak, rich malt and balanced alcohol that stops this malt from being cloyingly sweet.
Whisky Of The Month
The Gentle Giant...
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...
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.
For The First Time...
So Soft & Gentle...
Launched in 2011 this dram was originally destined for the French & Spanish markets where Cardhu is huge, but it's the first time I've seen it in Oz.
Like the 12yo, this is for all those who love their whiskies to be smooooooothe.
Members Price: $130
A welcome return to TOWC, especially as the distillery is now under relatively new ownership.
The distillate for this dram comes from around 2010 and was initially matured in first fill bourbon and then additional matured in ex sherry and Swedish oak. They also used Svenk Rok (juniper smoked) barley.
