Indri Trini The Three Wood

ABV: 46% Price: $60 Style: Single Malt Origin: India

This must-try Indian whisky comes from a village distillery running on renewable energy in the foothills of the Himalayas. Former Amrut master blender Surrinder Kumar demonstrates his unerring sense of balance, pace, and control over the fast-maturing single malt, which is distilled from organically grown six-row Indian barley indigenous to Rajasthan. Flavors of vanilla, citrus peel, baked peach, hazelnut, and cassis attest to the complex contributions from the first-fill bourbon, French wine, and Pedro Ximénez sherry casks. —Jonny McCormick
