CULTIVAR:  L. angustifolia ‘Opal Rain’

GROWER: Barn Owl Nursery, Wilsonville, Oregon

SEASON:  2021

FRAGRANCE: The undisturbed buds throw a mild lavender aroma with a dry woody tone.  When ground, a bright, clear, “sweet and sour” lavender scent is released, with floral and slightly green notes.  One can also pick-up on a mildly acidic taste impression.  In extracts, the distinct lavender core is accompanied by a slight mushroom-like earthiness and minimal bitterness, followed by the development of rich tea tones.  Structurally, the buds are well-dried with good retention of form.  As these buds are much more difficult than usual to separate from stalks and flower remnants, there is a fair amount of harmless brown chafe.  Overall, this is a great bud for both sweet and savory applications whenever bud color and the presence of some benign chafe will make no significant difference to the end-product.  Particularly good results can be anticipated for recipes using ground bud.
