Testers' Comments

“Boring” and “not very complex,” this oil came across as “plastic-y and industrial; some hint of olives, but it fades quickly.” Tasters identified off-flavors that were “unpleasant, dirty,” “like rubber and metal, with a sour aftertaste,” or at least “a bit funky,” with a “strange taste” that was “spicy, but in a motor oil kind of way.” One simply wrote, “Blech.”
