Hi vegaschef21, I've had a similar experience with The Cure. FOOB (for me, at least) it's a bit bland. But when I let it steep for 60-90 days it's a totally different juice. Just exquisite after a 60 day steep. I also have some of The Cure from 06/15. Right now, it doesn't taste the way it does after some steep time. I can tell you that there is a very noticeable difference in taste after 60 days. Maybe you should steep it a bit more? Hope this helps a bit.
