    I love a good well aged patchouli. I have a good number of bottles dating back to the early 90’s - don’t have geographic origin on all of it. Some patchouli gets very very thick with age - not sure what sets this apart from the stuff the stays very pourable. This is one oil that definitely shines best as it ages. Yum! Really old patchouli gets kind of tangy, wine-like, dense and oily... just love it.

    Different batches are different colors. Some are very dark, others paler. I think the metal of the still determines this. I think I read the oils are darker if there is a lot of iron in the alloy of the metal used for the still. I am not 100% sure about this.
