I have not had one in a while so I opened one tonight to taste it again. Yum.

I think I got just the right amount of flavor adding the dates when I did. I chopped them pretty fine so the flavor came out easily. The date sugar also added to the flavor slightly. Just like when I cook I do not like flavors to dominate but be subtle additions.

Adding the dates to to boil could add pectin so it could be a problem, so it is usually not recommended. If you want a stronger date flavor, either add more or you could add some to the secondary.
