What makes a good EVOO like Little Angel better than an inexpensive, ordinary olive oil?

A truly good extra virgin olive oil has vitality and character; it is alive – much like a good wine. It bears the aromas of the fresh vegetal world. In your mouth, the flavors blossom and then linger. In contrast, poor olive oils are a boring, inert experience – no smell, little to no flavor, and often a distinctly oily texture. If they are old, there may even be a slight but persistent rancid smell and flavor, like old peanuts or old oil paints.

An easy way to understand for yourself, is to compare two or more olive oils of different prices and qualities, side by side.

We have a great page on the Little Angel website all about how to taste olive oil.
