I bought it in the summer and kept it in the refrigerator until I took it out today. When I opened a strong alcohol smell, I thought it was broken, but after seeing the expiration date, I realized that the product description has friendly reminders that there will be alcohol smell. Although it is edible alcohol, it is still difficult to accept the smell. I soaked it twice in boiling water, washed it with water, and put a lot of minced garlic, but it still can't cover the strange smell of alcohol. I put chili sauce again, no way, that taste Just can't go away. If it has a high liquor taste, it is acceptable, but this taste is really strange, you must buy it carefully, if you really care.
