There might be a slight taste of bitterness in the oil which is a sign of genuineness. The bitter taste is given by some natural components of the olives, like polyphenols, which can vary from crop to crop and depending on the maturation stage. Bitterness is actually a positive quality in extra virgin oil indicating both freshness and the presence of antioxidants. Some varieties, like Tuscan olive oil, have more natural bitterness. As oil ages they will mellow and the longer they sit on the shelf the bitterness mellow downs.
