Shaikh Taher oud oil is the result of a benevolent donation of amazingly high quality wild oud woods hailing from Cambodia, Thailand, Burma and Vietnam, to Russian Adam, by one passionate oud lover. The aim of this creative endeavor was to witness the results of this agarwood olfactory rebirth into oud oil, and to recover the funds spent for raw materials.
Around 50% of the oud wood was cold-soaked for nearly one year; the rest was added, as is, with no further treatment. Nearly 1.5 kg was distilled, with slightly over fifteen grams of oil ultimately collected. At an approximate cost of $4000 per kg of oud chips, the oil commands a minimum of $500 per gram.
Thankfully, our kind oud lover stated that his desire was to make this oil affordable, choosing to recoup only a partial return on the money he spent on wood. Therefore, we are able to offer this oil for 50% less than its cost price. The resulting funds will be shared equally between the wood owner and the distiller Russian Adam.
As is the case with most cold-soaked ouds by Feel Oud, this oil is a hidden beast. It starts off very gentle and unassuming… but then gradually builds up its strength and power in terms of performance and olfactory richness.
Every now and then it manifests new, crystal clear nuances of high quality agarwood resin aroma from the different regions it represents. Bitter, tangy, silky smooth, sweet and sour, dark and bright; you name it, it is all there!
This exceptional, collaborative achievement offers beastly performance, a hyper-complex scent profile and an extraordinarily unique signature. A true artisanal oil, brought to you by Russian Adam and Shaikh Taher.
