I’ve tried several “toasted” or “roasted” sesame oil; none tasted much different from ordinary sesame oil. This one has a distinct smoky flavor that makes all the difference to my tastes. Since it’s a finishing oil it takes only a small quantity, so being able to get it (and keep it fresh) in a small bottle is a plus. My order arrived within a few days from Asian Mart, too. What’s not to like?
