A specific taste associated with olive oil.  The majority of olive oil taste comes from which grade it is and what olive varietal(s) it is composed of.  Of course, the taste changes based on the crop, the weather, the land it was harvested from, as well as the age of the oil.  A supplier can usually match a specific olive oil taste profile when a sample is provided by the customer.
