**I want to thank Lindsay Olives for the free product, and for allowing me to review their olive oil. All opinions and tasting notes are my own, and I am not affiliated with, work for, or paid by any of the companies I taste oil from on my video blog. I only represent my own company and brand: Olive Fantastic. I truly enjoy tasting these olive oils, and aim to educate you on their unique flavors and even more importantly: how to taste and evaluate olive oil for your own use. That’s my goal here, to educate everyone I possibly can on the greatness of premium 100% extra virgin olive oil!
