    Label:

    142ml bottle from The Co-op, Reading. Nice square bottle and label design. Label calls it extra hot and has a chilli nuke.

    Looks:

    Nice syrupy consistency, not too runny or too viscous. Red colour with good amount of chunks and seeds, looks great.

    Aroma:

    Big vinegar and big salt mostly, some sweetish hot pepper mash notes.

    Taste:

    Very vinegary and salty, I've heard lots of people complain about this which is understandable, personally I like vinegary/salty sauces so I didn't have a problem with it, pepper mash, vinegary habaneros, light onion, not really sure about the Scotch bonnet and ghost pepper which is apparently in here though.

    Heat:

    Wouldn't call it extra hot but there is decent heat here, again I'm not really sure about the supposed Scotch bonnet and ghost pepper.

    Overall:

    Very vinegary and salty pepper mash sauce with good consistency, better than expected but might be too salty / vinegary for some.
