Fifth Time Coming Back to Buy This
Posted by P on 9th Dec 2015
I keep coming back to this extremely intense, sweet, fruity vinegar, brilliant on salads. Nothing else I've found is quite so powerful, not even the other fruit flavors from The Olive Tap. I don't think of "tangerine" as a particularly exciting flavor but it's really more like a clementine or intense fresh mandarin, with that cutting citrus power on top of the syrupy balsamic. If you like citrus, and are considering trying a lemon or orange flavor, try this instead!
Truly Extraordinary Intensity
Posted by Ada Palmer on 13th Jan 2013
Everyone I have ever shared this vinegar with has been absolutely stunned by the intensity of its flavor. I have tried numerous infused oils and vinegars from many sources over many years, including years spent living in Italy. I never liked infused vinegars since they never seemed as intense as the pure flavor of the balsamic, but this one changed my mind. The pure citrus taste is like a distillation the dark bite that makes a blood orange or a meaty valencia orange so much more powerful than the sweet, candy-like lightness of a clementine. It is much too strong to be good for cooking but is perfect on salad, with a simple good plain olive oil to partner with it. Three times I've had friends who claimed they didn't like balsamic fall in love with this one. My uncle gave me a bottle of this as a gift almost ten years ago and I never forgot it, and am so happy to have tracked it down again.
