It sure is, and it's actually more sad than you think. It will even say in the fine print that it's a blend. Olive oil like Bariani or even Kirkland has a very unique taste and texture that is unlike any other oil. In fact, it's unmistakeable. There are different flavors that can exist i.e. Kirkland which is verified 100% is very neutral, but with a buttery flavor and aroma whreas Bariani is spicier and with a fruiter taste. However, much like coffee and wine, you can still tell that they're both olive oils (I'm using these two as examples as they're the two I use for dressing and cooking respectively). It's a shame that they put this bitter nonsense in bottles and call it olive oil because it happens to contain majority olive oil (and that's allowed).
