Olive Oil -- It's Here, It's Here!

#1 Post by Bob Wood » January 2nd, 2013, 2:44 pm

Kirkland (Costco) Tuscan EV Olive Oil, 2012 vintage. An annual steal at $11.99 per liter. Yeehaw!

Does this one come in a metal can? Is it much better than their regular? I think I just bought a jug recently...

It's usually a steal because it's so damn fresh.

This comes in a one-liter bottle, Tim. It's way better than their regular EV, which is also a deal at around $10 for 2 liters, and is useful as a finishing and dipping oil. Compares very favorably to oils costing upwards of $25 per half liter IMNSFHO.

And yes, what Rick said.

Love both the Kirkland tuscan and the silician vintage olive oil. Always fresh, peppery and bright green. Incredible value

Otto- I can't handle that kind of shipping ($12-15) for two 250 ml's to the Palisades, so I'll keep getting stuff at the Santa Monica and Palisades farmer's markets. I like their web site. [cheers.gif]

The silcilian oil usually shows up after the tuscan is gone. In Boston, It's often May

also a far of the kirkland tuscan olive oil, thanks for the heads up.

recently, when I needed a refill, they were out of it and were instead carrying a kirkland branded spanish extra virgin olive oil, from Arbequina olives, came in a twin pack of one liter glass bottles. I thought this was of a similarly high quality. First time I'd ever seen it, and it was gone a few weeks later... anyone else see or try this one?

I may not be an expert, but have gone through 1/3 of a bottle. It is distinctive from the Tuscany bottle, full flavored, and good. I would recommend it.

I thought the spanish was a little more nondescript than the Tuscan or Sicilian. Just opened a btl of the new tuscan. Green flavors transitioning to bright pepper. Drizzled on grilled pizza ! A keeper !!!

Jimmie, ask a manager if they're going to get them in. The Tuscan just now showed up in PTown, so it might be a few days until it gets to you on the buckboard. If that doesn't work, let me know and I'll pick some up for you and you can get it in March when you're here.

The 2011 is still peppery and vibrant.

I will buy a bottle of the new release and keep it in cool conditions. Buying this oil in the summer heat while the product is potentially sitting in a very hot truck can create storage issues, so that is why I like to but them now while in pristine shape.

Most of the folks here probably know this already, but do not store any oil above or next to the stove.

I keep a smaller bottle I refill in a closed cabinet and the rest of the bottle(s) in the refrigerator.

Could someone provide a SKU, or an image of the bar code, or a picture of the bottle? Or all of those?

I think we are having one of those East Coast West Coast things -- I went and found the usual nothing special in the Olive Oil department. Nothing remotely Spanish or Tuscan. And I went to the Costco website and couldn't find anything there either. I want to request it, or order it, and I can't even convincingly describe what I want to order.

At my store, instead of the Tuscan & Spanish they're selling a Calif XVOO from Cullen Creek. It's 6.99/liter and fairly decent. They also have a Greek variety for ~$10, but I didn't pick up any of that.

Finally got around to trying the 2012. Delish. I still have some 2011, which is still alive but the fade is way apparent when had next to the 2012. But the fact it is still good is impressive. This year, I am going to manage like Gene. Keep some in the fridge.

You will need to let it warm up a bit before refill. EVOO firms up in the refrigerator.

I am going to try and make it down to the SF Costco today. I will report back with findings.

Yeah I normally keep some of my special oils in the fridge but since this was so cheap, I just didn't think about it. Still even after sitting in my pantry it is tasting very good.

Just opened my third or fourth bottle of the 2012 and it is absolutely delish, as good or better than all of the other oils I have picked up in the last year for a LOT more $. My EVOO buying is on hold until their 2013 comes out.

BTW I just kept it in the back of a dark pantry for the last 10 months.

Thanks for the update. I have been going to my local, checking each week since I have been out for a few weeks now. Went there Friday and no dice. And the employees looked at me like I was crazy when I asked about it.

Given the various plagues that Italian olive growers have suffered, and a 35% drop in crop size in 2014, the price is surprising. Makes you wonder if it's really made from Italian olives.

How is it labeled? Does is say its made from Tuscan olives? Or only "Pressed in Italy" or "Packed in Italy."

Sure looks like Tuscan. (I'm assuming the current vintage reads the same way.)

I keep waiting for the promised price rise in olive oil, but I continue to find good deals even in Italian oils.

Olive Oil -- It's Here, It's Here!

#49 Post by Frank Deis » March 3rd, 2015, 8:52 am

Since this thread was bumped I have been checking every time I go to Costco -- but I have not seen the dated Tuscan oil. In fact what I've seen is some dated Spanish olive oil (can't recall the name, of course it's Kirkland but there is a designation) and I bought a bottle but haven't gotten around to trying it yet.

I have a feeling it will be pretty good but I still want the Tuscan stuff. Are people seeing that in the northeast NY-NJ-CT area?
