Extra Vergin Olive Oil Aromas
The Extra Virgin Olive Oil Aromas collection contains a publication and 12 samples of aromas to smell.
The publication provides useful information on the definition of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, its olfactory and taste characteristics, the aromas that can be detected in a high quality product, and how to do an Olive Oil tasting.
The 12 aroma samples help you to train your sense of smell while having fun. Try to smell the samples in a blind smell test and measure the progress of your olfactory sense. Once you have memorized a particular aroma, it will be much easier to identify, in its delicate forms, in an EVOO that you taste! The aroma samples include 9 aromas frequently present in high quality EVOOs, and 3 of the defects most commonly encountered that render the oil generic instead of "Extra Virgin" Olive Oil.
