Bayan-Ölgii is the westernmost of the 21 aimags of Mongolia. The majority here is mainly Muslim and Kazakh. Bayan Olgii is situated in a very interesting and unique location between Russia to the North, Kazakhstan to the West and China to the South.
Mongolia is a line with intensive growth throughout the vegetative phase during which long internodes are formed and at the beginning of the development there are not many lateral branches. During veg, the smell is not particularly intense, although, after a touch and a stem rub, a faintly oily to hashish smell can be caught.
This is a line that does not require special care. The plants from Bayan Olgii produce fairly compact and frosty buds in almost any condition. It appears to be quite resistant to drought, which ensures a well-developed root system. The stem is hollow and flexible and the branches are not expected to succumb to the weight of the buds. Most phenotypes form a main cola and side branches in the style of a Christmas tree. Lateral branches can tend to overgrow the main cola and the structure is then almost bushy.
At low temperatures, some phenotypes stain faintly red. During ripening, the leaves of some phenos tend to become lighter in colour while others tend to get darker, violet and purple, whilst the petioles and the stems remain mostly green.
This line belongs to those that can be smelled from a distance when in bloom. The scent is that of berries, sweet but also oily and with hints of turpentine and hash, not sour. The flavour when sampled is oily at first but with a fruity aftertaste. The effect is initially uplifting and cerebral, later calming with a smooth transition. Perceptible body buzz.
This is a line not to be missed, especially for those collectors of rare or hard-to-get genetics. These plants in particular have undergone and withstood all types of negligence and carelessness. They have been left for days in pots without being watered and in cold conditions during harsh winter and yet they made it through without much attention. As a matter of fact they don’t like to be “taken care of” as in chemical fetilizers. They wil get till the end if left on their own.
