This may very well be my hottest hot sauce to date. Officially, the Carolina reaper is the hottest pepper, but unofficially the dragon’s breath pepper is hotter (2 million SHU for the reaper to 2.48 million SHU for the dragon’s breath). And this sauce is FULL of dragon’s breath peppers. Eat at your own risk.
Ingredients: local chiles: jalapeño, dragon's breath, reaper; distilled vinegar, local onion, salt, local honey, garlic
Heat level: like I said, 11/10, easy
This sauce brings the goods and does not disappoint on any level. Shout out to Reaper's Scythe and The Devil's Backdoor Trots, welcome to flavor land!
I'm a big fan of hot sauces - around 40 or so in the 'fridge as we speak - and this one is phenomenal. The heat is around a 7 or 8/10 for me, with 10/10 being something like The Bomb or the One-Chip Challenge. The flavor is also amazing - great on Caribbean food, burgers, pizza, and sandwiches. Definitely gonna grab a second bottle.
I like this sauce better than the Smokin’ Ed sauces. This sauce has incredible heat for a non-extract sauce and the flavor is fruitful citrusy pepper forward flavor. The consistency is nice and thin, along with the pepper seeds to give it some texture. I also like that there isn’t a flow restrictor cap. Beautiful color and aroma also. I placed the sticker that came with my package on my electric guitar!
