When I first saw this sauce I didn’t really pay it any attention. The label just seemed like the manufacturer was trying way too hard to get me to think “Ooo that’s scary and hot”…but as I roamed the hot sauce shop I kept coming back to it because of the mustard brown color and the seemingly thick consistency. So what the hell, I bought it. As I said, the label appears to me to be the attempt of someone trying to be “too cool for hot sauce school”. It’s got red and yellow lettering (flames, get it?) and an admittedly impressive drawing of a Cerberus with some nice silver foil inlay. The smell is very pleasant, with mustard and garlic and smoky ghost pepper notes. It’s a pretty thick sauce making it both hard and easy to accidently pour too much.
If you like mustard, this sauce is for you. It’s so very good; Smokey, mustardy without being overpowering, and tangy. There is the occasional chunk of pepper in the sauce, making for some fun bites when you’re not expecting it. I’ve put this on sandwiches, enchiladas and burgers. If you’d put mustard on it, try this instead. If you wouldn’t put mustard on it….well screw it, try this anyway.
This is exactly as spicy as you’d expect a ghost pepper sauce to be. It comes in at around 900k on the scoville scale and it certainly lets you know that it’s not some Wendy’s knock off ghost pepper sauce. For my tastes, ghost pepper is the perfect heat level for normal eating and this sauce fits right into that range. Hot enough to torture your weaker friends, not so hot that you second guess using it yourself.
Despite my initial reluctance to purchase this sauce I’m very happy I did. It’s flavorful, spicy, and an all-around excellent sauce. This sauce certainly deserves a try and if mustard is not your thing it still deserves a spot on your shelf because it’s just that good.
