I think this is "Oliver's New Silurian Oil", but I could be making that up.

I don't think this will work in your transmission.

Well...the good news is my SSIWBM has begun!

Going to attempt to not purchase anymore wine until our annual Willamette Valley PN trip next fall.

Should have somewhere around 200ish bottles to hold me off until then, so I should be ok.

CT Updating, please wait....

SOOOO in for 3! Seriously, this is awesome tasty olio. Got it last year, savored every drop of my bottle and gifted one which won RAVE reviews from the giftee. This year I'll gift one and keep TWO for selfish foodie self.
SOOO yum! Now if I'd only remembered to use my birthday coupon before excitedly hitting that big gold button.
Duh!

EDIT: OMGOMGOMG just realized how awesome this will be with my recent homemade no knead bread habit. My God I wish Woot did air freight options!
Can you tell I'm overly excited? Takes so little to thrill me after wooting off all week hoping for this to show up.

The woot-off continues on the main site. So we may get a detour or three coming our way. Or it could start back up here at noon tomorrow!

I have been waiting for a year for this to come up and it happens to be when I have one foot out the door and one TSA agent's hand on my crotch because I'm going to Brazil for a month. For those who have had this, will it still be nuovo around mid January? Is it worth buying if I can't open the bottle until then?

Shall we start a betting pool? I put the over/under at December 23, 2010.

IMHO, absolutely worth it, mbmanaus. Should be fine until then as long as whoever receives it for you doesn't snarf it down first. Last year they said it would be at peak for about 2 months if I remember correctly.
Fly safe, enjoy the cheap thrill of TSA groping, and enjoy summer down south!

This is incredibly expensive though. Can et a litre of lovely oil in Silverlake cheese shop for $20ish and it's lovely. Or a bottle this size at TJ's of decent wuality for inder $15... (the basic stufff coming in at $3.50)

How much better is this really?

I would take that, but you can't monitor my away from woot purchases!

I'm not too worried about it...when SWMBO sees the CC bill I'll either be dead or it will be shredded!

Before serving this oil, you'll want to give the bottle a bit of a shake so as to suspend the luxurious olive sediment in order to garner the most intense flavor... you will have to use the bottle up in a week or so due to rapid oxidation once opened..

No offense, but isn't that like asking why one would buy the Cornison when KR Ramsay is $10/bottle? If this was wine, you'd be the one saying, "your palate is better than you give it credit for... you will taste the difference."

That said, it's more than I'm willing to spend. I view it as one more expensive hobby to avoid...

Is this organic and first cold pressed or cold pressed? I assume yes given the price and rave reviews.

I won't be held accountable if you turn out not to agree, but for me, this stuff is an autobuy. It'll be fabulous with the absurdly expensive vinegar they are bound to put up soon, too. (You are, right guys? Cuz I need my fix.)

The fresh, grassy flavor is amazing. It is also an amusing color of neon green.

It is best within the first couple of months, but will still be very, very good later.

I am now spoiled for all other olive oils.

None taken: you're absolutely right, and I asked it for a reason! I want someone to describe to me the flavours, the nuances, the differences of this oil to my $4 basic olive oil or $15 premium olive oil, just as someone might describe Corison by the nose, palate, length and other taste descriptors. And then there's the production values: what in the growing makes this superior? what are the soil conditions, weather and olive varieties used!? What quality control of theirs is better? Is it the quick or single pressing? Are there other techniques which give a different taste?

Here we analyse taste, aesthetics and production, both with our tongues and with our minds! We ought to exted this to something as complex as a good olive oil too. I want to be converted!

given the wootoff's still going over on green, what are the chances wine.woot is back to the 12-hour gift week turnaround? High, I'd say, so you may be in luck.

I hope so... I'm wanting that one again also.. And just ordered this oil..
I'm not able to describe detailed palate characteristics .. but both are awesome.
I like oil and vinegar on my salads and might as well use quality there. This oil is very green color, tasty enough to drink by the spoon.. green apple hint and peppery aftertaste. There may be local places to get something equivalent, but I haven't really tried.

This link seems to be a good unbiased description of Olive Oils..

Yeah, it's a fine line because we share money, it will in essence just be spending more money. She's quite practical like that.

I am however attempting to devise a scheme to get her the car she's been wanting a while for x-mas...sort of like those luxury car commercials, cept w/o the luxury lol...

At the rate I use olive oil I could never afford this . . . I'm going to have to stick to three-liter cans. Congratulations to those of you who are either very well off, or don't truly love olive oil enough for it to make a difference!

This seems unbiased. Or at least not a wholesaler, retailer, or grower.

Cost seems to be a function of haste (needs to be sold and consumed within 3 months) and rarity (seems to require careful selection of olives, and only the first pressing). It also appears that this stuff is to regular olive oil as 30-year old old-world Cabernet is to "Hearty Burgundy." It seems you don't really want to cook with this, but instead eat a lot of bread and salad, because it's going to turn rancid by March or April.
