ATLANTIC: IN SPRING WATER
ZINGERMAN'S: IN OLIVE OIL
ZINGERMAN'S: 2016 VINTAGE IN OLIVE OIL
An oil with a faint sardine aroma upon opening. Three plump fish to the tin. A clean-tasting fish, no bitter flavors. A medium textured fish, a spine fish, spines don't stand out while eating. A roe-filled fish, they are slightly detectable. No strong flavor or after taste. A neutral taste oil does not overpower the fish. If the packaging didn't say "Vintage," I wouldn't have guessed it. Would eat again. 4 1\2 Sardines
Sardines, drinks, friends, and fish tales go hand in fin!
Many of the blogs older Sardine Eaters are aware of the fish tales that go into some posts from time to time.
For the newer Sardine Eaters, I'll explain a bit.
In a review, I may post apparent wrong descriptions; the number of fish in the tin will be significantly exaggerated more or less, apparent sauces mix up. e.g., tomato, call it olive oil (I never fish tale about quality or taste). When I'm called on or questioned about the very obvious, the sharp-eyed Sardine Eater receives a tin and sticker.
It's been several years since I've done a fish tale of the sorts; the last fish tale was about Sardine lungs!
I've carried the fish tale over to social media for the first time. What a response I received. Some were quick on the draw; older readers called me on it quick, even sending screenshots of my own blog. I love the passion of Sardine Eaters!
For the Sardine Eaters not on social media, here's the fish tale.
