The wait was well worth it! This is by far an amazing wood to burn anytime. The subtle sweet and earthy tones really lighten a space and bring joy as well as smoothness to my day when burning.
First Oud burnable and I must say that I choose wisely. The importance of type of charcoal used cannot be understated. Stay away from the common type you may find readily available. I also use a mica plate with great results after a friend's recommendation. Hints of pepper, leather, and tobacco linger well after the burn has completed.
