To help you sort out what may seem to be an overwhelming array of olive oils, we've separated 3 categories. No one category is "best." Rather, we suggest you sample oils from each of the groups - each can and should take its turn on your table. Many people often have three or four oils at home, using each where it will best fit the flavour of the finished dish. Different days, different oils.
Oro San Carlos is a thoughtful blend of locally-grown Arbequina and Cornicabra olives of Extremadura. The olives are harvested in early October thus giving the oil a more concentrated fruity flavor. This well-balanced oil is medium fruity with notes of fresh herbs, apple and almond with a subtle spicy finish and adds wonderful flavor to grilled meats and vegetables. The oil was recently awarded one of the “Best Olive Oils in the World” with a Gold Medal at the 2015 New York International Olive Oil Competition.
