Taris Zeytin's Olive Oil from TA-ZE Singapore
Cool - a Turkish olive oil shop has opened up at Great World City (1 Kim Seng Promenade #B1-13B, 6737-8307). I'm far from being any kind of olive oil connoisseur, but lately I've become particularly fond of extremely pungent ones; the dark green ones that are so strong in their fruity, grassy taste that they almost sting a bit...as if one were almost biting into the olive tree itself. A few from Spain and Italy come to mind.
Unfortunately, all four of these in TA-ZE's sample pack were more mild than I was hoping for. Even a giant cheapo bottle that I got from Carrefour was stronger in taste than these, if more processed. But lack of boldness aside, these Turkish ones were more natural and polished - and pleasantly so. I just hope that I can find something stronger from them next time.
