Important reading to understand the scorings
GLOBAL EXPERTISE LEVEL Judges are experts in olive oil tasting and are located worldwide in order to lower cultural biases and ensure a global representativity within the scoring.
TIME FOR EVALUATION Judges are given much more time (10 days) to evaluate the samples than in any other competition.
TRIPLE BLIND TASTE The Olivonomy Paris Tasting Awards follow a very unique triple blind taste process, meaning :
A) Judges don’t know which product they taste except its category.
B) At no time the product is revealed to them, neither after tasting or scoring.
C) They can’t even remotely discuss about their samples, being given all different codes.
MANDATORY FULL ANALYSIS Judges are required to provide a complete sensory analysis before being able to submit their scoring : texture, features, aromas intensities on nose, palate and finale, and persistence. They are also required to match the following scale.
VALUE FOR MONEY After tasting, judges are asked to rate the value for money based on the declared Recommended Retail Price, which is disclosed only after their 1st scoring submission. They’re then given the option to update their final score accordingly.
