"A ruby red oil with a sparkling clarity. Fragrant and complex - and the character of the spice comes through on the palate. It is hot and potent stuff - very pure paprika heat, instantly hot on the tip of the tongue and lingering heat through the swallow. A clean and interesting oil with a lot of potential uses."
