Definizione

Flavour that is reminiscent of metals. 1

Nota

It is characteristic of oil which has been in prolonged contact with metallic surfaces during crushing, mixing, pressing or storage. 1 Nowadays is unusual to find this defect because modern presses are made from stainless steel and don’t react with olives. 2

Contesto

If these aromas are not present, it is possible that the olive oil is flat, poor quality or has
gone bad. These undesirable aromas can be described as rancid, old, metallic, musty,
humid or fusty. 3
