Description:

Official: "ORIGINAL Louisiana Hot Sauce is the hot sauce of Louisiana, a distinction that no other hot sauce can make. It can be considered as one of the very first commercially available Cajun food products, first introduced to the public as a delicious condiment, world famous for its delicious flavor and unique flavor enhancement properties.

Although dozens of imitators have used the "Louisiana" name to promote their hot sauce products, many of them aren't made in Louisiana and most are not certified Cajun hot sauces. Blended from authentic long cayenne peppers, Louisiana Hot Sauce is the first and the best. Our cayenne chile peppers are sun-ripened, carefully selected, and handpicked."

    • Looks: 5
    • Heat: 2.3
    • Label: 4.8

    Label:

    It’s red and yellow. It’s nothing special

    Looks:

    It’s a thin red liquid. It’s very similar to other similar sauces like Texas Pete or Trappey Bull

    Aroma:

    The aroma is very straight forward cayenne and vinegar. There isn’t much nuance and the smell isn’t super great but it’s jot bad either. The smell is clean and simple like the taste

    Taste:

    It has a good taste. I like Louisiana best with seafood for some reason. I prefer Texas Pete for Chicken and the like but Louisiana fits well and is acceptable in most contexts. This a salty and vinagery sauce without any nuance.

    Heat:

    This is a middle of the road hot sauce. It’s not very hot but it has a little something to it. It can be eaten in large quantities and goes well as a condiment for things like French fries. It work well with most fried food and is good with seafood. It’s a particularly good sauce for oysters

    Overall:

    I like this hot sauce. It isn’t ever ideal for any single given application but is a little more than acceptable for most applications. It has a slightly different taste from other sauces with similar ingredient lists. I recommend trying it. Lousiana is best on a raw oyster or something like a fried side of flounder. It’s also good in very large quantities on fried chicken and French fries. The one drop does it thing is inaccurate. I avoid cooking with sauces and prefer to use fresh or ground chili’s but if I had to use a sauce for cooking I wouldn’t choose this one. This is because of the sauces high vinegar and sodium content. You’ll get a lot of vinegar as opposed to cayenne and this isn’t ideal for most dishes. I use Louisiana exclusively as a condiment

    • Taste: 3.2
    • Aroma: 2.1
    • Looks: 2.6
    • Heat: 1.8
    • Label: 2

    Label:

    General paper labeling. The style reminisce asian style sauces with its shape, font and colour selection. Its alright, but its not something id put on a hot sauce bottle.

    Looks:

    General red colour. Its watery and mixes well with small foods like pasta and rice and it spreads well on meats, like steak and chicken.

    Aroma:

    The combination reminds me of olives. It must be the peppers they put in. Its not strong in smell, but it certainly changes the smell of the food a bit.

    Taste:

    Its rather bold and has spices that are broadcasted in the sauce. The choices of spices are very well picked because they mix well with most foods they are placed on. I wouldnt put this in stir fry.

    Heat:

    The label states that one drop does it. I dont think that one drop will ever do it in a meal. I usually shake a few streams on to my dinner and it still wouldnt be that hot. The heat:flavour ratio is off, but at least it has heat and it has nice taste.

    Overall:

    Its a fairly good sauce. Its good for most and its a good sauce to have on you when people are over. Its welcome everywhere. The ubiquity of qualities this sauce has are its downside.

    • Aroma: 5
    • Looks: 4.3
    • Heat: 2.5
    • Label: 4

    Label:

    This how sauce is made by professional business. It carries a no nonsense label intended to be sold nationwide and to a large audience.

    Looks:

    Color is a hot sauce red. No large particles, seeds, skin, or other items floating in the sauce. Seems more cloudy than a sauce like Crystal.

    Aroma:

    Takes me to Louisiana, a clean, tart, spicy aroma.

    Taste:

    The taste is tart, moderately hot, and lingers on the tongue. The vinegar clearly shines through in the sauce as does the heat. This is not a sweet or sweet and sour sauce.

    Heat:

    I would say this hot sauce is about as hot as Tabasco. On this website I use 2.5 out if 5.0 as the heat of Tabasco, and 5.0 is for ghost pepper or similar sauces.

    Overall:

    This is a very good Louisiana hot sauce. It goes on gumbo, fish, hot dogs, fried pickles, fried green tomatoes, eggs, and more. I would use this rather than Tabasco in a Bloody Mary. Crystal has edged it out as my favorite Louisiana hot sauce. I keep both in my refrigerator at all times however. It is readily available in large cities and supermarkets in the US. I test southern US hot sauces when I find new ones and have for the last 15 years.

    • Heat: 2.6
    • Label: 3.4

    Label:

    Familiar label features a big red dot.

    Looks:

    Looks deep red- like finely ground chiles in vinegar.

    Aroma:

    Smells like fresh pickled peppers in stainless steel drum.

    Taste:

    Fresh pepper taste with prominent vinegar and salt. Basically unaged Tabasco. I have been to both factories and the peppers come from the same fields. The brighter redder ones go to Tabasco and the rest go to Louisiana brand.

    Heat:

    Sweet and medium hot. A little sprinkle imparts slight heat and salty tase. If you dump a whole lot into canned chili if makes a nice compliment. Decen marinade for grilled chicken. OUTSTANDING with butter on chicken wings!!

    Overall:

    High ranking for price and ease of buying in almost any grocery store. This sauce can be substituted for catsup on hot dogs for a little extra kick. You can also use it to extend a can of chili into 2 bowls- add some crackers and makes a delicious easy dinner :) Tasting it straight from the bottle produces slight heat on the tongue and opens the sinuses. This is a gentlle medium hot sauce- a crowd pleaser for those who are not die hard chiliheads.
