In this article, I will review their woodsy whisker (beard) oil, which is their signature brand.

The scent of this beard oil is quite pleasant. The label doesn’t say much about the scent itself, and the website only mentions “woodsy”.
I was expecting the typical conifer / cedarwood kind of beard oil scent. I was actually dead wrong. This whisker oil, as they call it, has a mild smokey wood aroma with subtle notes of citrus, that probably come from the grapefruit extract that’s part of the blend. The smoke aroma isn’t campfire-like, but closer to hickory. The citrus notes make the blend awesome and way more versatile and accessible than the average woodsy beard oil. I’m not a big fan of woodsy beard oil myself, but let me tell you that this one is solid. It has virtually nothing in common with the typical woodsy beard oil scent.
If you’re more a citrus beard oil kind of beardsman, I suggest you have a look at that one. The smokey wood twist it has might surprise you.
Feeling on the Beard and Skin
The Winnipesaukee Whisker Oil’s signature scent has medium-light texture that makes it very easy to apply. It’s non-greasy and spreads evenly on the beard without any hassle. It’ll make you beard shine without overdoing it. As for itching and beard dandruff, this product takes care of that as well with efficiency.
Here’s the list of ingredients for the Winnipesaukee Whisker Oil:
Sweet Almond Oil, Argan Oil, Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E Oil, Grapefruit Extract, and essential oils for scent.
All in all, this beard oil, or whisker oil as they say, is terrific. The scent is unique, a bit woodsy, a bit smokey and subtly citrusy. The oil is easy to apply on the beard or whisker.
If you’re looking for a beard oil with a wood base, but not just plain wood, I highly recommend this one. The mix of smokey wood and subtle notes of grapefruit is amazing.
