so, we sampled this on fight night (11/12 – the night manny pacquio lost the fight but won the decision). reactions were mixed but not great. i thought it was OK but too smokey/bacony. dennis dumped it out and thought it was gross, the weave thought it was too over-powering and said “maybe we can cook with it.” and wendy said she liked it. mike thought it needed more bacon. i left the top off the bottle for 24 hours to see if it mellows out a little bit … more later.
