When you first open the bottle the aroma, like perfume, arise from the bottle; a soft, gentle olive oil smell. It is light and airy to the nose.
In the spoon, to the eye, it is the greenest, murky, glorious color of a new oil. The cloudiness excites you, creating great anticipation to the vibrant flavors you're about to taste.
The first mouthful is not what you expect. Your taste buds tell you, you can almost feel the cirrus clouds of the floating crushed olives. The oil you taste is a buttery olive. Artichoke and asparagus are the hints that sit inside this flavor profile.
As it rolls to the back of the mouth, that's exactly how it feels, like it's rolling smoothly to the back of the throat and then down. The first spoonful had no peppery kick, no tickle. The second one spoon and I was coughing, not in the hot, kind of peppery way, but just in the way of a good tickle.
There is no racing with this oil, it's just calm as it floats like a cloud as it passes through your senses of your inner being. It is distinctly Tiburtini.
