Here’s one of the bottles of olive oil we bought at Mandarini (gourmet food shop) in Mykonos: Ta Mylelia. I regret not buying more since it’s a beautiful bottle and would make a great gift, but we had no way of knowing which ones would be good.

We like this one very much, so we’re 2 out of 3 so far. The flavor is quite unique, tasting more like olives than any other olive oil I’ve ever tasted. The viscosity is perfect and watching it pour and pool on the dish is very sensual.

I’ve gone through a bit too much bread in the last few days because of this olive oil, but the good news is, it is available on-line (although way more expensive). I do recommend buying it!
