  1. Josh scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Excellent maturation in an extreme climate on the foothills of the Himalaya, three very good working casks, that give each their signature flavour to the whisky and a very decent price tag with just around 40 €.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Mellow, loads of dry spices, but also subtle sweetness and some fruitiness between dark velvet sherry fruits and some tropical top note.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Rich and full bodied, tannins. The original tasting notes speak of "burnt pinapple" and that is at least not completely wrong as it has some sourness but also lots of roasted, spicy wood.
    • Finish
      86 86
      The three casks do their thing and atop of the tannins there is sweetness from the Bourbon, berry-like top notes and some sourness from the French Wine and a rum-raisin note from the PX, coming together very well.

    The first 10 minutes I was impressed by the nose. However, this whisky seems to be a bit of a blender. The longer in the gals, the nose turns. Unfortunately, after the first hour, I have musty notes that are really not nice. These are confirmed on the palate and on the finish.

    Would look for alternatives, a licensed dram can do more in all respects...

    It started off really well with the first drams, but in the meantime I'm no longer really convinced of the bottling. In addition to its fruity and sometimes pleasant spicy notes, it unfortunately also shows a bit too much bite in the nose for me, in the taste once again this disturbing tingling of sharp and not necessarily aromatic spices, which I simply don't want to have in whisky. In the finish for me, at least with this bottling, a disturbing and persistent bitterness, black tea drawn too long hits it quite well in my opinion, which almost overlays the fruit notes and does not accompany them.

  7. Boletus did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    A really decent whisky from India, which doesn't offer me any added value compared to other single malts from this country. The interplay of tropical fruits and spices can also be enjoyed by others who like to appear a little more lasting and with more substance and do not carry this subliminal mixture of alcoholic youth and burnt wood with them. Yummy yes, a highlight, at least in my eyes, no.
    • Nose
      Opens up immediately appealingly fruity with juicy peaches as well as pineapple and resinous mango, the odd lychee is also mixed in, sticky-sweet ''Crimson Red'' grapes, jasmine blossoms, the resinous note increases a little and combines with a quite fresh one Aroma of wood, but also drier toasty oak notes are present, vanilla, hints of sun-heated pine needles, a dollop of forest honey, an alcoholic touch of youth wafts by again and again, subtle spices such as nutmeg far in the background, overall sweet and inviting, but not particularly complex or profound play of aromas
    • Taste
      The tropical fruits are right back at the start, many juicy peaches and lychees, mango with a resinous stalk, some grenadilla and guava as well as pineapple, spicy forest honey, the sweet and lovely fruit spectacle is accompanied by a relatively tart wood note, delicate roasted aromas are added, mildly roasted ''Java'' coffee, some vanilla and a minimal hint of coconut can be recognized before isolated spice components appear with a tiny trace of cinnamon and nutmeg, after the mixture of aromas coming from the fruity and becoming spicier has broken down a bit, the distillate leaves However, something is missing in substance and a bitter woodiness comes into play
    • Finish
      Relatively decent length, but the aromas offered are very manageable, bitter dry oak wood with burnt toast aromas sounds a little alcoholic, the fruits appear again and ensure a lovely finish with a recurring echo characterized by lychee as well as mango and peach, which appears very late again a subtle hint of vanilla and coconut

  8. praisethepasta scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    I ‘m pretty certain that this is the best value for money whisky I’ve had in a long time. It’s engaging, rich and potent, with a near perfect balance between spirit and cask. The combo of wine and PX casks could easily have turned into a case of overkill, but it’s well in tone and the spirit and the bourbon cask sort of balance things out wonderfully.
    • Nose
      86 86
      It’s immediately rich with quite some depth to it: baking spices, notes of tropical fruit and red fruit (cherries and rich, red grapes) with tropical wood in the mix. There’s something slightly fizzy, a spice like sweetness reminding me of cola cubes, and over time a green, fresh herbaceous note comes through.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Again a rich and busy arrival, but there’s something young and youthful in there too. Toffee, coffee and chocolate with spices and roasted nuts to go with it. And then there’s the typical green-spicy note I’ve come to recognize in many Indian malts using 6-row barley. It doesn’t end there: the fizzy and cola cube notes from the nose return on the palate, as well as a barrage of fruits, albeit the dried fruits (dates, raisins) have the upper hand now. Underneath there’s an oaky note, adding a bit of a drying bitterness to it all. So rich and busy, but all delivered in balanced, equal amounts, making this a very tasty dram.

      Dry, oaky and medium long.

    Read some positive things about this one, so had to try it, with quite some expectations. And it didn't disappoint at all.
    Great value for money, very fruity and fresh, but also quite powerful. One that won't scare off beginning drinkers, nor will it bore the more experienced ones.

  14. Koning scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Lovely profile with luscious (tropical) fruits! My first impression was a 87. With more time in the glass, the fruits become a bit less pronounced and the palate less smooth / more sharp. Still, a price of 40 euro is certainly value for money!
    • Nose
      86 86
      Very fruity, with mango, oranges, melons, apples, raisins and pineapple. Green tea and a curious hint of glue give this otherwise lovely nose a strange edge.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Sweet fruits follow up on the nose: mango, passion & citrus fruits. The palate is more spicy, with white pepper and a mineral touch. Becomes sharper after a while.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Peaches and red fruits. Some pepper and a minor plastic offnote. Becomes a bit dry with tannins, the wine casks are finally speaking.

    Was my surprise in 2022. If you see what prices are now being charged, this is really an insider tip. Fruity, tropical, roasted pineapple and all unfiltered and uncolored.

    Überraschend lecker, Noten von grünem Tee, Früchten und ein wenig Gewürzen…. Sehr komplex, ändert ständig den Geruch.. top Whisky mit mega PLV

  17. Defeatless scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Quite surprised by this whisky. Good price-quality balance! It isn't your regular Scotch, but a decent whisky!
    • Nose
      Surprisingly nice sweet and flowery. Something of a mixture of walking in a flower shop and a perfume shop. But it works out well.
      The sherry cask with is red fruits is in the background, but easily recognizable.
    • Taste
      Good and well balanced whisky. The sherry cask is there, but not dominant, the vanilla and fudge from the bourbon casks too.
      It is medium bodied and easily drinkable.
    • Finish
      Medium length. Here shows the wine cask it's face, slowly taken over by the sherry casks. Fades away with some sawdust.

    This was a really nice surprise, not the most complex but I really like this sweet (tropical) fruity - herbal type of malt. Plus you can tell it's not Scotch, which makes for a nice change as well. Highly recommended at a price of around 40 euro.

    1744) Indri, Trini- The Three Wood, Distillers Select, Batch 05, Bottled 06/2022, Piccadily Distillery
    • Nose
      N- Sandalwood and tropical fruits lead to sweet PX notes, the sphere extends to maple drizzled hard fruits- guava, in particular, are apparent. Licorice and sweet tobacco mingled on and even some ripe berries too. The integration of various casks has done well with plenty of room for every aspect to twist and turn effortlessly, without overpowering it. More tropical fruits developed in the glass overtimes, ginger oil, and ginger flower. Feel the modern caramel notes that scale down the points a little, but a 'colorfully' fragrant malt nonetheless. (87/21)
    • Taste
      P- Delicate texture that amplifies the puffy sweet spices. Fruit compotes, ginger spicy, jammy red berries, and subtle wood smokes. Dash of nutty almonds. (86/20)
    • Finish
      F- Medium, vinous dry, spices, sandalwood, tropical fruits caramel. (86/20)

      B/B- 86/20 Best Indian Single Malt at WWA 2022, probably this wasn't the winning batch. Not quite AMR yet, probably at the same level as PJ, and better than RMP.

  24. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Fine easy drinker with volume and solid aromas, whisky with a tropical touch. The aromas are reminiscent of the Kamet, but in the Ferndzell it is finer and more balanced here. positive in this context. Again a good Indian at a reasonable price. I like it, but somehow I'm missing something for a purchase, an aromatic incentive.
    • Nose
      Nose: sweet, vanilla, lots of fruit, ripe and tropical, but quite undifferentiated
    • Taste
      Slightly tingly in the mouth. Slightly bitter oak. A few spices, some pepper.
    • Finish
      The finish shows a lot of fruit again, orange lemonade. Slightly tart and spicy, bitter oranges.

    Indri Trini, The Three Wood, Batch 2, 46% alc. Original bottling (2022). Ageing: Bourbon, wine and PX sherry casks.

    Nose: Sweet, fruity and slightly floral. First maple syrup next to pineapple and apricots, plus some lychee and roasted almonds. Then lots of peach, also peach flavored iced tea. There is a light roasted aroma in the background, I have to think of dark toast with jam. After a few minutes, after this first fruit bomb, delicate oak wood comes through.

    Palate: Creamy and fruity, quite light mouthfeel at the beginning, but then builds up spicy. Here, too, initially fruity and sweet, but much spicier than in the nose. The oak is stronger, nutmeg and cinnamon appear, as well as white currants.

    Finish: long, fruity, fruit basket. Again, a slightly floral component, the spices have calmed down a bit, delicate caramel lingers with pepper and cinnamon.

    Conclusion: What a release for a whisky country so unknown to me. A whisky that doesn't have to hide, and the recommended retail price is a real declaration of war. 84/100 points (2022)
