    Location : Upper Assam
    Distillation Year : 2019
    Style : intriguing, complex, social friendly.

    London Oud Fayre 2019, I was going there having spent my last cents hoping to keep La Maison Khenata afloat by making a decent score.

    I had already spent a lot of money to make the Guldasta and what was left of (very expensive) wild of grade insence and (a minority) of its shavings to top up the pot to make the Yamada Torajiro happen.


    I was talking to an English oud colleague about my plan to make a most special Hindi while the fermentation process started.

    His answer, if he remembers correctly was: "huh, interesting ...".


    Do not let yourself be overwhelmed by the Japanese sounding name, yes of course the overall profile is indeed of a Japanese style but what La Maison Khenata serves you with the Yamada Torajiro is pure Indian Gastronomy.


    Oud lovers know two kinds: barn and not Barn, traditional or modern.
    Basically: soaked and unsoaked.


    The fermentation process:


    Did you know that most of what you eat comes from fermentation?

    No matter where you come from on Earth, you have a fermented specialty.
    Your social drinks come from fermentation, your charcuterie comes from fermentation. Your yogurts too, your kimchi too, your kefir too and as we also talk about Japan, your miso paste too.

    No chocolate without the fermentation of the cocoa bean, is chocolate barn?


    The fermentation process, if well controlled, does not serve to rot an organic matter, it serves to give it a rebirth.

    And that's all that the Yamada Torajiro is about.


    Believe it or not, you are about to swipe an oud that has been fermented for much longer than the most barn ouds you have ever known and yet you will not believe your nose, like all those who have already tried it before you : 0 barn, pure minimalist in its immense complexity, à la Japonaise.

    There too, I will ask you to believe yourself: the Yamada Torajiro did not come out to the store earlier because it is the first oud of which I have not managed to fully go around and at the time when I write this text , I haven't break all the notes down yet ...

    I'm releasing it just because I was asked by many people to make it available, otherwise it could have stayed aging for a long time .


    At application, you are struck by all the notes of what the Yamada Torajiro has to give you: yes but all at the same time!

    Your brain cannot digest as much information at once and as a natural reflex, you move your head backwards to regain your senses: this is where the Yamada Torajiro sequence begins...


    Black tea with a slight hint of peach, sheesha tobacco, creamy spicy custard vanilla, light woody creamy vapes Japanese incense stick , Siberian musk into Mysore sandalwood maceration et caetera, et caetera, et caetera ...

    So give yourself a bottle of this oud of rare beauty and please do me a favor: tell me what notes you found ...
