The end of the journey, I present the results of the Blind Oud Test. Here is a link to the full results, one file, separate tabs. Each reviewer's result sheet is included, with their questionnaire and notes (if any) appended to the bottom of their result sheet. Then there are the collated results for each panel. In the summary of Panel A I also included the Habzoud results on the right margin, and in the summary of Panel B I included the total result for Sweet trat, i.e. the averages of all 10 reviewers: https://www.dropbox.com/s/jq6i45w2n4hdop3/Blind Oud Test Panels.2.xlsx?dl=0 For the sake of quick presentation here is a picture of the Panel A Results cleaned up to essentials: The panel converged nicely to give clear separation and winners And here is the picture of the Panel B Results: There was a bit of clashing in this panel, to create a hot beautiful mess . Only marginal wins. Before the discussion or reactions begin, I would like to remind everyone to be cordial and polite. A lot of work and generosity went into this endeavour. The reviewers went into this completely blind, and unless you've ever tried blind testing you may not realise just how hard it is to be stripped of all information and all helping crutches, it takes some courage to tackle this task. Each and every one of the reviewers did a fantastic job, and I thank them for their time and efforts; I defend all their reviews 100%. The same consideration should also go for all the benefactors/vendors; the generosity shown was unprecedented. Each and every sponsor put their faith in the community to review their oils, they showed confidence in their products, and great patience and trust in the overall process. A huge thank you gentlemen! With regard to the participating oils though, every comment is fair game. The point was to see how a set of oud oils would be received if we stripped them of all extrinsic information. I also hope that we don't stop at the result sheets. Just because the process is over, doesn't mean we can not discuss and continue to learn from both reviewers and vendors. I am open to all and any questions regarding this process, with the provision that you have read through the process before engaging: http://www.ouddict.com/threads/blind-oud-test-the-procedure-please-dont-post-any-replies.1485/ There are plenty of answers in that thread and I have no intention of repeating myself Enjoy!
