Take yourself to the olive oil expert!
If you were previously of the opinion that a good olive oil only smells and tastes like fresh olives, you were wrong. First-class extra virgin olive oils inspire with many different aromas. Depending on the type and ripeness of the fruit used, numerous scents and taste nuances can be discovered, from local fruits such as apples and pears to exotic ones such as kiwis or bananas.
In order to properly taste an olive oil, you should enjoy it pure. In addition, just like with a good wine, you must first release the wonderful aromas of the quality oil by swirling your glass. So pour yourself a good gulp of the top oil into a low but wide glass (e.g. whiskey tumbler). Place a small plate on top and swirl the jar in circles a few times. Once the oil has settled, lift the lid and begin your tasting.
First you can sniff your nose. Take a deep breath and keep your nose directly over the glass. You will be amazed at how many different scents a high-quality extra virgin olive oil has to offer. Then take a small sip and let the oil slowly glide from the tip of your tongue over the entire mouth to the throat. Whether sweet, tart, a little bitter (actually every first-class olive oil is) or a little spicy when swallowing, our top-quality oils will impress you with an extraordinary taste experience.
