This is an excellent, robust, early-harvest, green Criolla that is very well balanced with strong pungency and fruitiness, but medium bitterness. It is extremely fresh tasting with very floral, herbal, and berry-like aromas. This oil has a pleasant nuttiness of fresh almonds that compliments the strong green flavoUrs of fresh-cut grass, mint, and cinnamon. The Criolla finishes with an aftertaste of black pepper and chili pepper.
