Too much taste and smell of alcohol
Posted by 94Tina on Sep 30, 2012
I think you can really smell and taste the alcohol in this one. Especially when you use too much - which is quite easy to do, because of the big opening on top. I have to pour it in to the lid before adding it to my food, so I won't pour out too much. I like the fact that it's orcanic and has few ingredients, though.
Very Good AND GLUTEN FREE!

In the United States, in order for a vanilla extract to be called pure, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration requires that the solution contains a minimum 35% of alcohol and 100g of vanilla beans per litre (13.35 ounces per gallon).[refer to Food and Drug Administration (April 1, 2010). "Food and Drugs, Chapter I, Subchapter A, Food for Human Consumption, Part 169—Food Dressings and Flavorings"] ---- so, of course this has a high alcohol content! It is a requirement!! Come on people, be fair in your criticism. Besides, the alcohol burns away in cooking/baking, so what's the problem?

VERY little smell of vanilla overpowered by the smell of alcohol. This is my 4th time ordering from all the different brands of extracts sold on iHerb, and I've been disappointed each time. Please bring in Mccormick's brand of extracts. They have the best.

This has a strong taste of alchol with very little taste of vanilla. A waste of money & a very poor product indeed! Will buy from supermarket next time.
The real thing!

and I love that it's organic. I've used it in several recipes so far and it tastes great.
I'm in love with it!!!

I add this extract in all my bakes and it turns out wonderfully! I love this smell and taste of fresh vanilla beans and not a synthetic vanilla that is sold in our shops. I will definitely continue to buy it, but in large bottles ;-)
a bit sticky

Only minus with this one is that the bottle is made the way that when you pour, it comes down your bottle instead, so it gets really sticky and some of the liquid goes to waste. otherwise- great taste and price

Like another poster said, it has strong alcohol taste with very little vanilla taste and smell. Not sure if it's a bad batch or the product itself. Also, the liquid comes down your bottle when you pour making it sticky, so to prevent this I recommend using a spoon held very closely to the tip of the bottle then immediately wiping the top of the bottle with a tissue.
