Testers' Comments

While a few tasters liked this “potent” oil, others said they detected “mushroom,” “rotten walnuts,” “a Band-Aid wrapped in a cherry blossom,” and a quality that was “downright medicinal—Triaminic, anyone?” Several deemed it “overpowering” and “musky,” with a “rank, off-flavor.” “Tastes not like olives but like the armpits of olive laborers,” shuddered one.
