The real caviar that is expensive does have a taste that some people love while other people hate.

For example Sturgeon caviar has a fishy, salty taste and an unusual mouth feel to it and some people enjoy that taste while others hate it.

I once tried the Sturgeon caviar when I went out to eat with a more wealthy relative and I couldn't get it down my throat while my rich relative loved it.

I would certainly not pay for any Caviar but if you've had other types of Caviar but not Sturgeon Caviar then the other Caviar types may not have a taste to them while the Sturgeon Caviar and a few other types do have a taste that can either be good or bad.

To me though no matter how good the Caviar tastes I still wouldn't pay the prices they want for it.

Caviar very definitely has a taste. Indeed, different kinds of caviar have different tastes. The main difference is type of fish - “caviar” sometimes is used to mean only sturgeon eggs, sometimes the eggs of any fish. I recommend to try some black caviar https://globalseafoods.com/collections/black-caviar as for me it is the best!!

I agree with the previous comment. Caviar tastes good. Maybe you've tried low-quality or stale caviar? I think it's possible. I suggest you try some fresh Iranian Beluga caviar. My favorite. I buy it from a trusted supplier https://caspianmonarque.com/caviar/beluga-iranian-caviar/. I suggest you do the same.

There are many reasons for this. From the peculiarities of catching fish to the useful properties of this delicacy. The taste of caviar can vary greatly depending on the process and location of its cultivation. The best caviar, such as Sturgeon and Sevruga caviar, are often described as buttery with a nutty flavor. However, the flavor profile can vary greatly.
