A description of the olive oils from the website of "Oro del Desierto".

Coupage

This olive oil is carefully selected by the "master taster and blender." The first oils are produced between the middle of October and the beginning of November using Arbequina, Hojiblanca and Picual varieties. These oils are stored in 2000L stainless steel vats where they are analyzed and then selected in varying quantities and blended to create a superb olive oil with a limited production.
Aroma/bouquet: Touches of recently cut grass, tomato, green olive and hints of citrus and dried fruits less notable. Flavour/taste: Smooth with light bitterness almost unnoticeable, peppery finish. Pleasant after taste with a persistant olive flavour and small after notes of spices.

powerful, notes of tomato, apple and banana. Also almonds and mint touches in less intensity. Very complex and well balanced.
