My basil doesn’t taste like basil!

My basil doesn’t taste like basil!

My basil plants used to produce wonderful smelling and tasting basil leaves, but for the last couple weeks, it hasn't tasted or smelled the SLIGHTEST of basil. As soon as this happened, we began to water less, since it seemed like many of the plants were getting overwatered. This has not changed a thing. The only thing I can think of is that we haven't been pruning back the leaves regularly and now each plant has a few dozen... ...does any experienced gardener have any better ideas? :] Thanks!
