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.

Warenghem Roof Rye
Double Maturation French Rye
French rye whisky that's been double matured. Well that's a first for me. But the story behind this whisky is quite extraordinary.
The first rye whisky produced in France, it was matured for 6 years in both used and new Breton oak and then shipped to Marseille for "two summers" of cooking!

The Weekly Dram
Tomatin Cu Bocan
Now here's an interesting dram as I ask you, "When was the last time you tried an official Tomatin?"
And it's a very modern style: lightly peaty (15ppm), matured in both used Bourbon & sherry along with new oak. Yep virgin oak. And the taste? It's young, feisty with the new oak dominating the palate.

Whisky Of The Month
It's A Single Malt...
Blackadder Black Snake
Vat 1 Fourth Venom
But Not As You Know It!!
This is one of Robin Tucek's clever concoctions, as it is derived from a solera system.
Here's how one retailer explains it, "take some barrels single malt whisky, let it mature into two ex oloroso sherry casks and through the so-called solera system. The casks are then 2/3 emptied from below and filled again from above."
Flavour? Smooth and lush.

Heartwood We Are Brothers
Lark Bourbon Casks
With A Hint Of Mongrel!
Yes! Finally!! At Long Last!!!
I have stock from the wunderkind or enfant terrible of Tassie whisky: Tim Duckett.
This time it's all Lark, all bourbon (with a hint of port) and it's all cask strength: 65.6%. Looks like it has Lark 10yo or so spirit in it plus what TD call a good dose of "mongrel".
In Whisky This Spring...
The Tasty Triple...
Triple distilled, fully matured in ex boubon casks and according to blogger SWB, "Thick and mouth coating with gently sweet, fruity oils with a pinch of spices. The quality from the nose comes through clearly into the palate."
