Country: Latvia (I’m assuming)
Nose: They are packed in a neutral oil-the can says vegetable or rapeseed oil so a very fresh fish smell comes through nicely. Wow!
Eye: So very pretty. I assume these are machine packed but how does a machine not tear them up. Even the tail fins are left fairly intact.
Fork Feel: Since they are the itty-bitty ones, they tend to fall off the fork easily so you have to be gentle.
Tongue: Glorious. Light on the tongue. A touch of texture. A bit of a smoky aftertaste
Mouth Feel: The oil slick holds in the mouth more than the smoky fish flavor does. I’d recommend a drink to cut through that – maybe something citrus based.
