OVER ALL:
A brief marinade aroma is detected upon opening, it disperses as quickly as it let it's self known. A medium textured fish. A very mild and flavorful marinade. a great blend of spices, nothing is fighting to make it self known, a very well balance of flavors. Best marinaded sardines I've had to date, leaves no strong after taste, a very clean tasting fish. ( I wonder if they have a master blender for spices and marinades as the states do for bourbon?) Perhaps they kiss each sardine and pack them with love. They are that good. I would and will eat again. 5 sardines.
