Default Problem with Nak Sweet Melon

I bought 250g of Nak Sweet Melon. Moved it into a ziplock bag. Inside of the bag it has an alcohol type smell, but smelling the outside of the bag it smells like good ol' delicious sweet melon. Smoked it, tasted like the inside of the bag (alcohol type taste). I know the inside of the bag had no smell and I moved it to another bag that had no smell and it still has that smell. Did I get a bad batch? Would moving it to a tupperware make any difference? I tried acclimating it, but it didn't do anything. I miss the deliciousness of sweet melon .

I left the bag open to try and air out the smell. Which was only for around 30mins other than that it was never left open. The alcohol smell is more of a rubbing alcohol smell.

I'd try moving it to a shallow Tupperware container and letting it air out a little and see if that helps. I've never had a problem with sweet melon, but some of the other Nakhla falvors have tasted off to me. Stirring and airing them out some helped. Some were not salvageable. Probably old batches.

Try the overpack method, it normally brings out the taste more in Nakhla and see if the alcohol taste or the melon taste becomes stronger.

Tupperware that has not stored chinese food, or lo mein, or other random food stuff. And don't use tupperware that's stored tobacco for food!
