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.

When Was The Last Time...
Cadenhead Small Batch
Teaninich 2006 10yo
You Tried This Distillery!
Right! Hands up those you have tried Teaninich (tee - ni - nick) recently?
Not me, that's for sure.
This distillery has an unusual method of mashing, that involves filtering rather than using a mash tun. Look it ip.

Getting So Hard...
Douglas Laing Port Ellen
1983 25yo Refill Butt
RARE And highly desirable.
From Douglas Laing's Old Malt Cask range from a few years ago. Looks like it was matured in a refill sherry butt, but don't expect it to be a big dark monster.
The colour suggests a paler style of sherry.

Whisky Of The Month
Springbank 10yo 700ml 46%
From the highly individual and delightfully idiosyncratic Springbank Distillers comes their flagship 2.8 distilled, lightly peated whisky 12-15ppm, Springbank.
The basic 10yo is back to its very best old self: this malt is bright and pleasingly salty, ex bourbon cask matured whisky with noticeable seaside & citrus fruit characters.

What I'm Drinking
At The Moment..
Something A Little...
Cadenhead Classic Rum
Cadenhead's entry level vatted rum and for 2017 now comes in a spiffy new package.
According to the bottlers, "The classic is a blending of several dark rums from Guyana (Demerara mainly) the age is around 5-7 years old but they will use up to 10 year old for the consistency.
Chocolate orange. Slightly spicy with a long finish. Excellent!
And it works!
In Whisky This Autumn...
One Of Faves...
Blackadder Raw Cask
Dailuaine 1996 19yo
A Fiesty Joy!
I've always had a soft spot for Dailauine.
There are only three official bottlings and only a small number of Indie bottlings.
Only 288 released, American oak matured and what pleases me even more? It's well aged and at cask strength with the bits in it.
