Spanish Olives

Hopefully my fellow Chowhounders can help me with this one. I had an amazing trip to Madrid this past March, and really got hooked on a specific type of olive that was typically served as a free tapa in many of the Madrid restaurants. My dilemma is I can't remember the name of it and have not seen it here in the Philly area, even in specialty markets. It is a small bright green olive cured in a very dark brine and the flavor has a pronounced garlic bite. Does anyone know what I am talking about? They were very common in Madrid, but I did not see them down in Sevilla. Please help an olive junkie out, b/c I need a hit of those olives! Thanks, Prizat
