Not really sure now as they just opened an olive oil company not to far from me... My friend and I went in while we were at a memorial day parade, but tasting was not a good idea then since we both had a mega large beer, and I believe that would have changed the flavor of the oil drastically... I'm going to go again next week for a tasting as they have different vinegars also...

That being said when I know you will know...

For general cooking, I usually buy Colavita. But my absolute favorite oil is a garlic-infused olive oil from The Oilerie. They have a few store locations around the US but I believe they also have a website where you can order online.

And they also have a 25-year aged balsamic vinegar that is to die for. Seriously - I could drink that stuff by the spoonful.

Cretan Mythos is an incredibly flavorful extra virgin olive oil from Crete, Greece. I highly recommend it, if you can find it. I've been trying other brands and I'm quite disappointed so far. By the way, is it ok to mix different brands? For example if I don't like one particular brand, can I mix it with the delicious Cretan Mythos?

Why would you add something you don't like to something you do? I think it would be disappointing, bringing "down" the flavor you like.

If I were you, I would save the brands you're trying that aren't meeting your ultimate flavor needs for cooking where the particular olive-oil flavor you most enjoy isn't a priority. I don't think I'd bother cutting them with your "good stuff" unless you're using so much of it that it's absolutely necessary.
