Very smooth olive oil ** check harvest dates ***!
on March 22, 2012
I ordered this olive oil several times from different vendors, some vendors sell olive oil from 3 harvests ago.
I am not an expert having only triangulated different sources on the internet, depending on filtered or unfiltered olive oil, the product life for optimal taste (not shelf life) can range from 6 months-2 years maximum. Olives in Spain are harvested between November and March depending on the region.
The olive oil is very smooth, light yet "present" for a lack of more appropriate words. Olive oils even those served for salads can be very strong in flavor. Perhaps it is a matter of taste, however I prefer the olive oil component to be easily detectable but not on the foreground.
Friends who are fervent cooks (one from Italy), I have given the olive oil to as a present - like this brand too.
