Discussion in 'Oud of the Year 2017' started by AbasFrag, Dec 2, 2017.
You can choose oils from different regions as per the post above
Oud Bilqis: Malaysian (IO)
Sri Pada- Wild: Sri Lankan (IO)
Assam Organic: Hindi (EO)
Ceylon Royale (IO) is the best oil that possess both traditional vigour and modern flare. A unique amalgam of traditional art and modern artisan-ship.
Oud Of The Year, or Best Oud Of The Year.
I vote for Assam Organic Meghalaya
That's a great 1 but I don't think it was released this year unless its a different batch
Organic Meghalaya was this year release different batch i think they are like at least 4 different batches. @Habz786 and @Ouddict know better exactly how many they are total. all this Assam organic releases are a bit confusing , even more of the batches are not even from Assam, but i guess the name comes for all batches because they are like classic Assam profile all of them.
Organic Meghalaya is in my top 5 Hindis i have ever smelled.
Price/quality ratio : laos 95 from zak.
Makes it oud of the year for me.
If only quality : Qandahar 2 from Al shareef.
so far 4 for LAOS 95............................
Oud of the Year Nominees:
Qandahaar II (ASO)
Malay Encens (HoM)
Ceylon Royale (IO)
Suriranka Senkoh (EO)
Laos 95 (Agarwood Assam/Zak)
Organic entry: Assam Organic Meghalaya (EO)
Yes.. great list there. Nothing from Taha I see?! I’m surprised, but maybe his oils were released recently so you didn’t try them?
By the way, this isn’t a per vendor selection! It’s actually been discussed above, but I’m not sure if we are doing a regional approach or wild vs organic or what? @AbasFrag what should we do?
Oh and where is the poll?
I think polls should stay open until mid January. Allow as many people to vote as possible.
imperial oud viet zypher
ensar oud tigerwood 1995
My vote for 2017 would be for Meitei AA
My first impression of Meitei AA was that I thought it was ok. There were many other oils I liked more but as time passed I became more drawn to Meitei and like it more and more.
I must say:
ASO: Qandahaar II
AgarwoodAssam: Laos 1995
Soon time to make a poll so please everyone submit your recommendation today
Both of those are superb.
Can you also put the following categories:
Oud of the Year (Wild)
Oud of the Year (Organic)
Mukhallat Blend of the Year - I am torn between Al Saqr, Al Ghaliya by ASO and Emperor by IO
Yes, unfortunately none from Taha, I am usually too slow to decide with his oils and miss out. I suspect Ayu would've been in my list but regrettably I missed it. Oud game a challenge when you oriented to take time deciding.
True from what I've heard from it it should have been in the list ...
Special K also ...
When I sampled his Ouds with Shabby, they were all great, but for me Kanzen stood out beyond the others, especially at the price it is going for.
I am not sure about my Oud of the year maybe I'll get back for that one.
But my Mukhallat of the Year has to Lubani v2 by AA
@Ouddict maybe there should be 2 awards one for Oud and one for Blend? Imran's given a good idea, i think it should be one Oud regardless of it being wild or organic my blend of the year would of course be Saqr
one oud regardless of it being wild or organic is my choice also.
