ELEONES receives excellent review from world class olive oil expert

ELEONES is in the pleasant position to read the review of world class olive oil expert Tom Muller, author of Extra Virginity: the Sublime and Scandalous World of Olive Oil.

Tom Muller gave ELEONES olive oil a superb compliment and wrote that ELEONES "is one of the very best olive oils I have ever smelled or tasted".

The full review follows:

Hand-picked from Mt. Athos hontroelia olives. I've rarely tried an oil from Greece – or from anywhere else – with this level of complexity and, well, "beauty."

The aromas are extremely complex and rich, with green cut grass immediately perceptible, then clear, rich olive-fruitiness, accompanied all along by an aromatic tingling in the nostrils – what I'm tempted to call "olfactory pungency."  Tasting reveals an equal complexity of sensations that follows similar pattern, and is in beautiful equilibrium with the aroma:  Pronounced green vegetable notes, followed by green olive fruit, and very slow-developing bitterness and pungency that have an almost unbelievable persistency – the perceptions continue to evolve in the mouth, on the tongue and at the back of the throat for minutes after tasting.

One of the best oils I've ever smelled or tasted.  (May 2013)

The review can be found at the truth in olive oil web site visited by thousands of olive oil enthusiasts around the world each day.

The ELEONES team would like to thank Tom Muller for his review. It gives the ELEONES team strength to continue what it started and that is to introduce the world to the “hidden” treasures of Greece.
