Here are some the comments of the Great Taste 2023 judges after awarding the Oro Bailen Arbequina 2 Great Taste stars:
"A green olive appearance to this clear bright oil. The oil is smooth with a clean grassy, citrus flavour; very versatile for drizzling on cooked foods and for salads.....A beautiful golden oil with a buttery, grassiness on the nose. This oil is well balanced in pepperiness and fruitiness, and mild enough to have many uses. A really lovely olive oil....There is a clear rich golden colour to this olive oil and plenty of tomato vine and rocket aroma. There is a light buttery mouthfeel. The flavours are fruity, mildly peppery and with hints of tomato. With medium length and fairly mild character this would be a good finishing oil for white fish:
