There is nothing that can prepare you for the heat this sauce emits. The best way to describe it when you put a toothpick drop on your tongue is imagine a nail glowing red hot and placing the nail on your tongue. Really hot!!!
Ladies and gentlemen, I’m proud to present to you Tabasco’s drunk and psychotic cousin.
In the description, it states “you litterally only need to use one tooth pick drop at a time”. That’s not bullsh*t!
The first time I tried it: It was like a mouth full of hornets stinging everywhere they can reach, and that was only one drop. I highly recommend it on pizza, to alter spaghetti sauce, or use in a very mean practical joke. Enjoy.
Just made hot wings with this. Well, hot wing. Wasn’t confident enough to put more then one of my wings in it. I completely coated the wing in it then broiled both sides of the wing at 500 degrees for 1 minute to caramelize the sauce into the wing. It lit my mouth up. I tasted the ghost pepper and the garlic but it also has a bit of a chemically Tabasco flavor which I assume is from the hot pepper extracts.
I just “graduated” to this sauce. I will tell you one thing, this stuff is HOT. I’m good for about 5-8 drops per taco and it lights me up. The pleasant part about this sauce is the flavor before the burn. It’s a bit smokey and that garlic shows up just before the burn. I think this sauce would be great blended with a bit of habanero for a little citrus-like flavor, but that is for next taco night. I recommend this to anyone who loves HOT sauces.
Wife brought this home, and I assumed it would be somewhere between Dave’s insanity and the plethora of other ghost Pepper sauces I have tried.
It’s not, and certainly feels like the 650000 shu it’s advertised at.
I endeavored, determined not to be defeated by a “Dave’s gourmet” product, as I didn’t believe it could be this hot.
After adjusting to the heat, the flavors do start to come out. It’s a very pepper forward sauce, followed by garlic that is about as intense as chewing raw garlic.
I’m a garlic lover and could enjoy the strong flavour, if it was not followed immediately by the acidic and foul aftertaste that is common with extract based hot sauces.
This for me is the only unforgivable sin committed by Dave’s Ghost Pepper sauce. The garlic is an obvious attempt to mask the flavour profile of the extracts, and it does not succeed.
The uninitiated will experience this sauce as a “novelty” product, too hot to really enjoy. Those of us that are constantly looking to bring our food to the next tier of heat and flavor could likely find something at this heat range that is not so reliant on extracts.
Good flavor has some heat to it. Very nice sauce but don’t use too much unless u want to shit fire, lol!
This is an awesome hot sauce. Just the right heat and flavor combo. I really don’t like vinegar tasting hot sauces and this one gives really good flavor. I put it on almost everything. Beware of putting in soups and chili it intensifies by 10. Just a few drops add great taste to any sandwich, taco, or burrito.
Dave sauce is the best I have found. Great job!!!!
