To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This truly is a crime against not only truffles but olive oil itself. Bitter and greasy, as though it’s been drained off a deep fat drier from a back street chippy that can no longer justify its quality. A taste that leaves the mouth distressed like an oil spill, as tough the tongue plays the role of an oil covered innocent seal thats dying, desperately in need of rescue. Water etc won’t do it. I recommend a soda/ cola, it’s the only thing that can erode through the thick Toxic mess. I’d have returned these immediately if I hadn’t gifted them all ready. Alas....it’s too late. I sit and wonder what my friends must now think of me. Perhaps confused and panicked at the thought that I’d try and poison them in their own homes
I’ve had a number of different brands of truffle oil before so I know what truffle oil should taste like. This is not it. Very strange taste - almost as if the oil itself has gone rancid. Don’t know if I got a bad batch but definitely won’t be buying again.
I have tried a few alternative brands in my quest to save a few pennies but the results have always been disappointing; ranging from no taste of truffle at all to repulsive. So, I have always come back to this brand; the taste is discernible, you only need to use very little, the price is reasonable and the delivery has always been reliable.
We love mushroom risotto but we used to think you could only really make a good one when wild mushrooms were available. We are lucky to live in area of Scotland where we can find them easily in the autumn. Then one Christmas we bought a bottle of this double concentrated truffle oil as a luxury treat for the family. We were thinking salad dressings but our son Laurence had the idea of adding a few drops to a risotto made with mushrooms from the shop and we now eat delicious mushroom risotto in any month of the year! We have tried some other truffle oils but this is the one.
Im so sorry to have to write a review like this, I love truffle and I love extra virgin olive oil... I can taste the truffle in there but it must be the oil, it taste cheap, growing up in Spain we pour olive oil on everything, this one just doesn't taste great and it ruins everything I add this oil too, hate to write this review but i raved about this oil to some friends when they visited us before lockdown and then it ruined all our food.
