VIP Gourmet Olive Oil Tasting

What you need to know before your VIP Olive Oil tasting


Spain boasts of over 260 different varieties of olive oil. Virgin olive oil consists of 100% olive juice, with some very interesting and specific characteristics.

The taste and aromatic references on the nose and palate can be very diverse and recall things as different as the smell of a green apple, an olive leaf, fresh grass, a banana, an almond or even a tomato plant. Visually, oils can have a wide range of hues and nuances that range from pure yellow to a very intense green. All of these characteristics may be discovered and compared during Madrid Experience’s Olive Oil Tasting sessions.


The four types of Olive Oil are as follows:


  • Arbequina: It has a fruity taste, hints of apple and banana and is fairly fluid. It is mainly used in pastry dough, chilled soups, sauces and light salad dressings. It is often used raw.
  • Cornicabra: It has the taste of apples and can be slightly piquant. Visually it looks like shining gold. It is mainly used in salads, as a light batter, pastry dough and sautés.
  • Hojiblanca: During an Olive Oil tasting, it may remind us of freshly cut grass. It may be slightly piquant and taste a little like almonds. Its color can be a light greenish yellow. It is mainly used in mayonnaise, garlic mayonnaise (aïoli), vinaigrettes, for marinated fish, cold and warm soups, pasta, sautés and preserved vegetables.
  • Picual: Speaking of flavors and aromas, during your Olive Oil tasting session, you may encounter hints of  green fruits, olives, tomato, figs, and can even have a bitter aftertaste. It is mainly used in salads, for batter and fried dishes, french fries, patties, breaded dishes, slow-cooked stews, and cooked or raw preserved foods.
