Taste the very best! 

Molefina Extra Virgin Olive Oil

     

 

 

     Try tasting olive oil using the four steps described to discern the various notes and flavor of quality oil.  But remember, taste is a matter of personal preference.  If you like the oil, that’s all that matters!

     The most important factor in sampling olive oil is the perception of flavor which is centered on both the sense of taste and smell.  Train your palate to identify a taste profile—the breakdown of the complexities of aromas and finishes along with pungency, pepper or bitterness at the back of the tongue with mild stinging in the throat—common characteristics of high-quality extra virgin olive oil. 

     Extra virgin olive oil retains its health benefits and delicious flavor when fresh and purchased within 18 months of harvest.  It's always best when stored in a cool dark place after opening.  So treat yourself.  Enjoy the taste and health benefits of using premium olive oil every day!
