The best flavot
I love the majority of the flavors with the olive oil, sadly this does not taste like basil, ingredients say extra virgin olive oil and natural flavors .... It does not taste like basil, it does taste like green but not basil
Thank you for taking the time to review the Basil olive oil.
I'm sorry to hear that it's not tasting as expected.
Twice per year we crush olives to make our flavoured oils and fresh olive oil does have that 'green' taste you notice. Unfortunately some olive varietals have a more green taste than others, and that intensity can vary depending on the time of harvest.
So its likely you received our newest Basil olive oil using olives crushed in May 2023 and that fresh oil has overpowered the basil flavour.
Over a short period of time the green taste will fade, hopefully letting that basil flavour through more. In the meantime your oil would go brilliantly in pasta sauce or soup, (specifically tomato!) where that green flavour will will become more subdued.
Perfect in salads and when mixed with any fruity flavoured vinegar
Quick fast service
Another one that I have used for many years. It is my go-to oil.
