On receiving, the product came with decent packaging. After opening it, I saw it was watery but after a good strong stirring you can get paste like consistency. The taste was good. Not great but average. Another thing that put me off was the label that was not at all the kind I've come to expect. It was cheap printed label stuck on a jar. Overall, it's an OK product but my next buy will be Alpino which was quite impressive when I bought it last time.
