olive oils have many differing characteristics

Spanish and Turkish olive oils are "fruity" and warm, many Italian have a touch of acid (bitterness) and a "peppery" note, many French olive oils have a grassy note. If you prefer the fruity oils, look for Spanish or Turkish, such as Lio or Pompeian.

A rancid oil doesn't taste bitter, it tastes dirty and thick and truly off.

Thanks GB. I've only used a couple different brands, one was from Trader Joe's and the bottle was cute but the oil was smelly. I'll keep trying to find one we like.
