Cayenne

Aged Cayenne Red Peppers, Vinegar, Water, Salt, Garlic Powder

Description:

Official: "Select, aged cayenne peppers are used to produce a rich, red, flavorful hot sauce very similar to the original hot sauce. It has outstanding flavor and aroma but with a useful step-up in the heat level. It doesn't "burn" out other flavors when used as an ingredient. Moderately thick, deep red sauce with strong aroma and high heat level."

    Label:

    Fairly generic looking, but that might also because I majored in art and know a bit about graphic design and what not.

    Looks:

    Very plain and watery. This isn't a very thick sauce by any means, but thickness doesn't equal quality.

    Aroma:

    There is hardly any scent, so that's not exactly a negative or a positive. If you don't want your nose burning from opening the bottle then this is fine.

    Taste:

    Not incredibly flavourful by any means, but it doesn't taste bad. I think Louisiana hot sauce has a better taste than this.

    Heat:

    I might be able to drink this in a cup.

    Overall:

    For a sauce that is labeled "extra hot" I was surprised at how much punch it lacked. Maybe I'm just spoiled because I lived near the original Quaker Steak and Lube so all of our stores sold their signature sauces, such as atomic, Asian crack, supercharged, and what not, but this is a relatively boring hot sauce. It doesn't have a ton of flavor and even worse is that it doesn't have a lot of heat. Even if a hot sauce doesn't taste good, if it can at least heat up your meal then there is some worth to it. Sadly, this doesn't really bring in the heat as the labeling would make you believe. If you don't have a higher than average tolerance for spices then this sauce might be for you, but for people who eat super spicy wings and other hot foods then this might be a pass.

    • Label: 3.1

    Label:

    Extraordinarily ordinary. They might consider changing graphics to enliven appearance

    Looks:

    Basic red for hot coloring. Again, it appears as if not a not if thought given to this aspect

    Aroma:

    Inoffensive. No lingering smells like garlic or vinegar. Not a high profile memorable smell

    Taste:

    Tomatoey. almost tastes like a concoction someone created in a lab. There is a slightly chemical aftertaste.

    Heat:

    Rather mild. It might get lost in cooking, and as a garnish , overall, rather bland tasting.

    Overall:

    Unfortunately not a lot to recommend. This sauce. Not especially good, but overall, not offensive. There are many more better tasting sauces.
