Tinsukia is the un-identical twin of Semkhor, cooked at the same time in the pot right next to it. However the wood for this came from a very different region, almost exactly the opposite area of Assam. Tinsukia is the very northern district, bordering Arunachal Pradesh and a stones throw from Burma. If you have any experience with Burmese agallocha then this oil will immediately make a lot of sense.
Opening with a creamy indolic leather, the aroma is smooth and nuanced. Aging of around 18months (at release) is just enough to iron out any sharpness without dulling any vibrancy. It exudes a slightly bitter note which morphs into a green citrus aura, Lime and Grapefruit being dominant. The sweet Hindiness still rings true, and progressively gets louder to finally overtake in the dry-down. A fantastic example of Assamese oil from this region, something which can be enjoyed by all not just Barn lovers!
