    Sumbawa WNT - a RARE and distinctive Gyrinops Agarwood - Gyrinops Versteegii : West Nusa Tenggara

    Jungle : Sumbawa

    Class : Wild

    Species : Gyrinops versteegii

    This is a unique species of Gyrinops : Gyrinops versteegii with limited distribution in Lombok, Sumbawa, Flores, Sumba, Timor and Alor islands of Indonesia.

    Sumbawa is an Indonesian island, located in the middle of the Lesser Sunda Islands chain, with Lombok to the west, Flores to the east, and Sumba further to the southeast. Along with Lombok, it is part of the province of West Nusa Tenggara.

    Traditionally, the island is known as the source of sappanwood, as well as honey and Sandalwood. Its savanna-like climate and vast grasslands are used to breed horses and cattle, as well as to hunt deer.

    In the 18th century, the Dutch introduced coffee plantations on the western slopes of Mount Tambora, a volcano on the north side of Sumbawa, thus creating the Tambora coffee variant. If you haven't noticed ... some very distinctive coffees are grown in this region of southern Indonesian islands. That same distinctive terroir that lends its unique taste to coffee ... also lends itself to the distinctive flavor of Agarwoods from this region.

    Here is your rare opportunity to find a decently priced, difficult to source Sumbawa WNT Agarwood.

    **These chips do well with a little more heat - and are suitable for both Electric as well as Charcoal heating.

    **Resin-density is quite good despite being lighter looking chips ... a hallmark of Verteegii species.


    Grassy, earthy, with hints of spice and sweetness.

    If you are familiar with Sumbawa coffee - you'll notice a distinctive, almost citrusy note to this unique wood.

    Sri Lankan Walla aficionados - you're gonna LOVE these rare Sumbawa WNT chips!
