EVOO the shop [Littleton, CO]

Have just discovered EVOO in Old Town Littleton. Tasting the oils and balsamic vinegars has been a revelation. The 12 year old balsamic is unbelievable. Deep in color, and very viscous (sp?), sweet yet vinegaryand somewhat acidic and fruity you just have to clear your mind of how you thought balsamic should taste. There are probably 15-20 others both fused and infused with herbs, flowers and fruit too. I likely will have to get rid of the grocery store purchased ones in our pantry because they are so inferior. Maybe I can reduce them down and use them as some sort of cooking sauce.

The variety of olive oils is a whole other story, with with a representation of them from all the producing countries in the world. This fine shop is going to take me in a whole new direction in cooking.
